This is the granddaddy of all executive MBA programs, which debuted in the midst of World War II in 1943. Building on that rich history, Chicago's Booth School of Business offers a world-class program taught by some of the best business academics anywhere.
The general management curriculum at Booth, with its emphasis on strategy and leadership, is designed to refresh, expand, and strengthen students' grounding in the fundamental disciplines of business.
A unique strength of the program is that it boasts three campuses on three continents -- downtown Chicago, London, and Singapore -- making this a true global adventure. The 270 admitted students -- 90 from each of the three locales -- begin the program together in late June at Chicago Hyde Park campus.
The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School's pricey Executive MBA program maintained its gold standard status in a new 2012 ranking by PoetsandQuantsforExecs.com.
