Texas A&M University’s Executive MBA program has been named a top 10 public program by The Economist, the international publication headquartered in London.

The Mays Business School program, delivered at CityCentre Houston, is ranked the No. 1 public program in Texas, the No. 9 public program in the U.S., the No. 21 overall program in the U.S., and No. 37 overall globally. The Economist survey was based on feedback from current students (classes of 2020 and 2021) and former students from the classes of 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Texas A&M’s Executive MBA program received the top mark in both “Quality of Faculty” and “Student Rating of Teaching Quality” categories above the rest of the 70 international programs ranked this year. The program also ranked second in the “Student Rating of Faculty” and “Student Rating of Content” categories, a testament to the sentiment current and former students have for the value of the program.

“This ranking is a major recognition of the incredible students we have matriculate through our program,” said Associate Dean for Graduate Programs Arvind Mahajan. “The expertise and dedication of our faculty, and the hard work and perseverance of these students result in an incredible experience and transformation for each cohort. That vast change is the true output; these rankings are an outcome that measures how our students’ entire lives are improved.”

“It’s wonderful to have The Economist recognize the hard work and dedication that the Executive MBA program faculty and staff put in every semester,” said Mays Business School Dean Eli Jones. “Congratulations to the faculty, staff, and students who comprise this Executive MBA program and the impact each of them makes to advance the world’s prosperity. I want to specifically thank Julie Orzabal, the director of the program, who since its inception 20 years ago, has led executive leaders and gained results like these.”

Applications for the Texas A&M Executive MBA program are being accepted now for the class of 2022.
