A&M's Business School Tops in Participant Work Experience

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Nov. 12, 2007 – In new rankings released by Financial Times, the Mays Business School’s Executive MBA Program at Texas A&M University ranks No. 1 in the nation among public schools (No. 5 in the world) in the area of “participant work experience.” The Mays Executive MBA Program was listed No. 66 in the world overall, out of the 90 top schools considered in the Financial Times EMBA 2007 rankings.

On average, an executive MBA student at Mays has 17 years work experience upon entering the program. "The significant work experience contributes to a dynamic peer learning environment," says Julie Orzabal, director of the program.

The Mays Executive MBA Program equips today's working leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in a rapidly changing organizational environment, say officials with the program.

Based in The Woodlands just north of Houston, the unique program is built around an ongoing study of how value is created in all aspects of an organization's operations, program leaders say. They explain that peer discussion and real-world case studies replace the typical lecture-driven classroom format.

The result is a highly interactive learning environment that provides each participant with knowledge they can put to work immediately, they say.

The 18-month program begins a new class each August. For more information, please contact the Mays Executive MBA office at emba@tamu.edu.

Mays Business School currently enrolls more than 4,000 undergraduate students and 875 graduate students. Mays is nationally ranked among public business schools for the quality of its undergraduate program, MBA program and the faculty scholarship of its 105 professors in five departments.
