Monday, May 17, 2010

The executive education offerings of the Wisconsin School of Business once again have been ranked among the best in the nation and the world.

The open-enrollment program of the Executive Education unit of the Wisconsin School of Business is ranked 13th in the United States by the Financial Times for 2010. In 2009 it was ranked 14th in the U.S.  This marks the fifth consecutive year that the public programs have been ranked among the top 15 in the nation.

The Financial Times ranks 60 schools from around the world in the open-enrollment category.  For 2010, Wisconsin’s program ranks 33rd in the world, compared to 29th the prior year.

The program survey used by the Financial Times is based on the responses of program participants. Areas evaluated include course design, faculty, value for money, follow up and facilities.

The publication also ranks the top 65 custom programs in the world. Wisconsin’s custom programming was ranked 9th in the U.S. and 19th in the world in 2009 but was not ranked for 2010 as not enough participants responded to the survey.

The Wisconsin School of Business offers one of the largest open-enrollment programs among top-ranked U.S. business schools. Last year, more than 2,600 individuals attended open-enrollment courses covering than 80 business topics.

The results were released May 10, 2010.
