Eller Executive Education ranked number 5

Eller Executive Education ranks #15 globally out of 80 programs for custom executive education.

During a time of great attention being paid to building organizational capabilities for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Financial Times has ranked the University of Arizona's Eller Executive Education custom programs 5th nationally and 15th overall, behind only Stanford University in the Western United States. Among similar programs in public universities in the United States, the Eller College program ranks #3.

The prestigious worldwide 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 Eller Executive Education (EEE). 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. In fact, one of EEE’s highest scores in the 2019 rankings was for overseas programming. Other high scores were for faculty and post-program communications.

“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.”

Executive Education 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 leaders 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, Caterpillar, Telkom Indonesia and DP World.
