In its annual list of the world’s top executive MBA programs, the Financial Times has ranked the Carlson School 17th among programs based in the United States, making it the only ranked program in the region.

Data for the rankings are collected using two surveys – one done by participating schools and the other by program alumni. Alumni responses inform five ranking criteria: salary today, salary increase, career progress, work experience, and aims achieved. The criteria obtained from the school surveys include gender and international diversity of the teaching staff and the students, the international reach of the program, and the number of published research articles of the faculty, to name a few.
