OneMBA®, the global executive MBA program offered in partnership by five business schools around the world, was ranked No. 29 in the world in the new ranking published by the Financial Times on Oct. 17.
OneMBA partner schools are:
- EGADE Business School Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico
- Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo da Fundação Getulio Vargas in Brazil
- Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University in the Netherlands
- University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School in the U.S.
- Xiamen University School of Management (SMXMU) in China
The Financial Times ranking is based on a survey of schools’ 2013 graduates, asking them about career progression, and data from the schools about the faculty’s research and the diversity of faculty, students and advisory boards.
“OneMBA’s truly global curriculum is taught by a global faculty in a unique partnership of five schools,” said Miguel Moreno Tripp, chairman of the OneMBA Executive Committee and professor of finance at EGADE Business School. “We are proud of our talented students and engaged alumni, who are redefining the role of global business leaders.”
Designed for business professionals who live and work around the globe, OneMBA launched in 2002, and its first class graduated in 2004. Today the network of approximately 1,400 alumni in senior leadership positions extends to more than 50 countries.
Professors from all five schools and international practitioners provide a framework for understanding the global business environment and management challenges specific to doing business in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
OneMBA is the only global executive MBA designed and delivered by five premier international business schools. Participants develop the skills needed to lead global organizations with an emphasis on working with multicultural teams. OneMBA courses include:
- Global residencies: Students from around the world come together for four week-long global residencies on four continents. They participate in classes taught by local professors, visit regional and multinational companies, and meet local business and government leaders.
- Global courses: Between residencies, OneMBA participants attend global core courses at their local OneMBA partner school. Each course includes a major project that requires working remotely with global team members from the other partner schools.
- Regional courses: Each partner school supplements the curriculum with additional regional courses that are proven to accelerate career success in its world region.
