go FE-MBA!!

BusinessWeek just released its B-School rankings of the best part-time and executive MBA programs. UCLA Anderson’s Fully-Employed MBA Program (FEMBA) ranks no. 1 among the nation’s business schools in BusinessWeek’s inaugural survey of part-time programs. Anderson’s Executive MBA Program (EMBA) ranks no. 8 among both national and international programs (up 6 spots from the 2005 ranking). BusinessWeek derives these rankings using the following metrics.

The 2007 Part-Time MBA rankings are based on three measures: graduates’ report of their general satisfaction with their program; an academic quality composite comprised of six equally weighted measures -- average GMAT score, average work experience, the percentage of all teachers in the part-time MBA program who are tenured faculty, average class size in core business classes, the number of business electives available to part-time MBA students, and the program's completion rate; and a third measure of post-MBA outcomes based on the percentage of survey respondents who say their program was "completely" responsible for achievement of their goals.

The 2007 Executive MBA program rankings are based on surveys of EMBA graduates and program directors. Survey results from recent graduates are combined with graduates’ responses from the 2005 and 2003 polls. The most recent graduate responses account for 50 percent of the total graduate score, and the two previous survey responses each account for 25 percent. Graduates were surveyed on various measures, including teaching quality, career services, and curriculum. EMBA program directors were asked to list their top 10 programs overall. Sixty-five percent of the overall program score is comprised of graduates’ inputs and 35 percent is based on inputs of program directors.

A variety of surveys rank the UCLA Anderson MBA programs, using different measures and methodologies. These BusinessWeek survey results, along with others conducted throughout the year, contribute to our understanding of several outcome measures related to our programs, and perceptions of our programs among students, graduates, recruiters and peers. We stress that individual rankings should be interpreted as but one indicator, among many, of a program's quality and impact. More important is the aggregate trend across multiple surveys of UCLA Anderson programs.
