June 11, 2020

Eller College program ranks #24 globally (for custom programs) out of 85 programs 


During a time of great attention being paid to executive leadership and strategy, the Financial Times has ranked the University of Arizona Eller College of Management’s Executive Education custom programs 7th nationally and 24th overall, with open programs ranked at 8th nationally and 50th overall.  

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. 

The Eller College has been strategically investing in the growth and enhancement of Eller Executive Education (EEE). EEE creates opportunities for business enhancement and leadership development in Arizona, the U.S. and abroad. In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, EEE has developed “Leadership Readiness for Turbulent Times,” a series of online courses designed to equip leaders with the latest tools from organizational psychology, neuroscience and crisis management to create and implement a customized action plan to manage the uncertainty, stress and extraordinary challenges we now face. 

“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 program,” he says.
