Mexico City, May 2, 2018.- The Executive MBA of EGADE Business School, of the Tecnológico de Monterrey, and McCombs School of Business, of the University of Texas at Austin, was ranked 12th on a global level and 1st in Latin America in the 2018 joint executive MBA ranking, by the prestigious QS education program rating agency.
“The program develops influential leaders who are fully prepared to address the incredible challenges and enormous opportunities of the new global economy,” commented QS on the program launched by EGADE and McCombs more than two decades ago.
“Being positioned among the best executive MBA programs in the world in the 2018 QS ranking acknowledges the fine work developed across more than 20 years by EGADE and McCombs as academic partners in the preparation of transforming leaders with a global vision,” said the program director, Iván Valdovinos. “Of course, it is also a recognition of the quality of our students and alumni, and the prestige and leadership of the faculty from both schools,” he added.
The program, offered at EGADE Mexico City in a twice-monthly format, brings together students with a global profile and faculty from both institutions, in an innovative, high-impact educational structure, which includes international seminars in Asia and intensive weeks at McCombs, in Austin.
To date, more than 600 participants, who hold leadership positions or lead disruptive enterprises on five continents, have graduated from the EGADE and McCombs Executive MBA.
The McCombs and EGADE Executive MBA double degree program was classified in the QS ranking above programs offered by prominent institutions, such as Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna) with Minnesota University, the University of Washington with Fudan University, or Purdue University with the TIAS School for Business and Society of Tilburg University.
The QS ranking –which rated the 24 top Executive MBA programs in the world considering five fields: employability, graduates’ entrepreneurship, and outcomes, return on investment, thought leadership, and group and faculty diversity – was led by the Columbia Business School, London Business School and University of Hong Kong joint program.
