TAMPA — CEO Magazine has ranked The University of Tampa Sykes College of Business’ MBA as a top tier program in North America, and named UT’s Executive MBA program as the No. 32 global executive MBA program.
For the ranking, CEO Magazine used numerous data points, including quality of faculty, international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty to student ratio, price, international exposure, gender parity and delivery methods.
Joining UT in the top tier of MBA programs are Texas A&M University, Virginia Tech, Pepperdine University and Boston University.
At No. 32, the Sykes College of Business’ EMBA program ranked in between the Bradford University School of Management in the UK, and the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management in Belgium.
Frank Ghannadian, dean of the Sykes College of Business, said this ranking shows that UT students — many of whom come from around the world — are getting one of the highest quality educations in the world.
“Our students are fortunate in being able to be engaged with both the local and global business communities,” Ghannadian said.
CEO Magazine has been showcasing top business schools from around the globe since it first launched in 2008. In 2012 the publication launched its annual Global MBA Rankings, profiling MBA, Executive MBA and Online MBA programs.
UT’s MBA program helps students develop the sophisticated strategic mind-set demonstrated by successful executives. The Executive MBA program is designed for experienced professionals seeking a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to mastering the art of leadership in the new economy.
Both programs are housed within the Sykes College of Business and are accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
