In my last blog installment, I indicated that I would keep you up-to-date on what is happening at Kennesaw State. At the Coles College of Business, we recently received some great news concerning our MBA programs from the 2011 Bloomberg Business Week Executive MBA and Part-Time MBA rankings. Our Executive MBA (EMBA) program was ranked in its "Second Tier" category, just outside the Top Forty EMBA programs in the country. Among the 26 other schools in the “Second Tier” are Georgia Tech, Boston University, University of Florida, University of Colorado, University of Illinois, University of Iowa, University of Miami, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rice, Purdue, Texas A&M, Tulane, and Villanova. The University of Georgia and Emory University EMBA programs are ranked in the Top 40, while Georgia State’s program was not ranked.

The news for our part-time MBA program is even better. In these recent rankings, we moved up to 29th in the nation and to 4th in South. In the "Top 10 in the South" list below, we are joined by Georgia State and Emory. No other Georgia or Alabama schools are listed in the top 10.

Top 10 in the South:

1. Elon

2. Ga State


4. KSU (#29 in the Nation)

5. NC State

6. Arkansas

7. Louisville

8. Rollins College

9. Belmont

10. Wake Forest

Kudos to Coles Interim Dean, Kathy Schwaig, and Associate Dean of Graduate Programs, Sheb True for their leadership, and my faculty colleagues in the Coles College for their outstanding efforts, that lead to these rankings.

I am heading out of town for a conference this weekend, so I am not sure if I will have another installment of the blog until after Thanksgiving weekend. If that is the case, here’s wishing you and yours a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
