During a time of great attention being paid to executive leadership and strategy, the Financial Times has ranked the University of Arizona Eller Executive Education program first among public universities and second overall in the Western United States, behind Stanford University.

Eller College also climbed 34 spots from its 2017 global ranking of number 68 to be ranked number 1 in Arizona and number 11 in the United States. The prestigious rankings are based principally on measures of participant and client satisfaction, as well as school reputation, growth in revenues, international reach and faculty diversity.

UA Eller College has been strategically investing in the growth and enhancement of the Eller Executive Education (EEE) program. With its main offices on Eller’s downtown Phoenix campus, EEE creates opportunities for business enhancement and leadership development in Arizona, the U.S. and abroad.

“These prestigious rankings are a testament to the quality of our curriculum, our faculty’s ability to engage an executive audience and our continued market growth,” says Eller Dean Paulo Goes. “With the Fourth Industrial Revolution upon us and other factors that contribute to volatility, leadership development programs are vital as new technologies change the way we work and live.”

EEE Assistant Dean Joe Carella says it’s important for businesses to do their due diligence before committing to a program.

“At Eller, we focus on preparing managers to tackle the challenges of doing business today while simultaneously creating exponential growth opportunities. Our faculty and coaches support executives long after they leave our classrooms,” he says.

Recent clients include Microsoft and DP World. The EEE also conducts ongoing, free webinars that deliver insight in today’s volatile business environment. Businesses interested in the topics of Inside-the-Box Innovation, Diversity and Inclusion: Finding Power in Parity, and Five Traps for the Unwary Negotiator, can find free webinar recordings at
