Financial Times Ranks Eller No. 4 in Western US

The UA's Eller College of Management made its first appearance in the Financial Times Executive Education rankings, debuting in the global top 75.
June 1, 2017

The University of Arizona Eller College of Management recently made its debut in the Financial Times Executive Education Program rankings. The 2017 global rankings are based principally on measures of participants' and clients' satisfaction, as well as the school's reputation, growth in revenues, international reach and faculty diversity.

At No. 68, Eller is the only new school on the list to break into the top 75 this year, and ranks No. 4 overall in the Western U.S. behind Stanford, UCLA and the Thunderbird School of Global Management.

UA Eller College Dean Paulo Goes said the business school has been strategic in its aggressive efforts to grow the Eller Executive Education (EEE) program. With its main offices on Eller's recently expanded downtown Phoenix campus, EEE creates opportunities for business enhancement and leadership development in Arizona, the U.S. and abroad.

"More organizations are recognizing the need for leadership development programs of their C-suite and various management levels to help boost capabilities and revenue," Goes said. "The results of the Financial Times' rankings are a testament to the quality of our curriculum, our faculty's ability to engage an executive audience and our continued market growth. This is the next step in a journey that will see us engage more organizations and business leaders globally."

Upcoming webinars include "Building a Culture of Adaptability" on May 23 and "Closing the Talent Gap in Digital Transformation" on June 22. To register, visit
