The Ross School of Business Executive MBA Program ascended to No. 7 among U.S. schools in the Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking 2023, moving up four spots from No. 11 last year. 

The Michigan Ross EMBA Program earned the ranking among 125 domestic and international peers, according to Financial Times. The program also received the highest tier ranking of any U.S. school.

Financial Times rankings are compiled from data collected through two online surveys - one completed by the participating schools, and the other by alumni who completed their program in 2020. 

Among U.S. schools, Michigan Ross ranked in the top 10 across several of Financial Times’ criteria, including: salary three years after graduation (No. 2), career progress three years after graduation (No. 3), and overall satisfaction (No. 4). Demonstrating a strong return-on-investment, Ross students experienced an average salary increase of 56% three years after graduation, according to this year’s results.

“We are extremely proud to see our Executive MBA Program move up in the Financial Times ranking this year,” said S. Sriram, associate dean for graduate programs. “This recognition is a testament to the diligence of our faculty and staff, who work hard to ensure that we continue to offer our students valuable leadership development, a strategic, action-based curriculum, and individualized career support. We remain steadfast in our efforts to prepare EMBA students for what’s next in today’s business world as they learn to effectively lead through change and achieve success at a higher level.”
