For the second year in a row, the Else School of Management at Millsaps College ranks in the top tier of North American M.B.A. programs and Global E.M.B.A. programs, as listed in the latest issue of CEO Magazine. The Else School is the only Mississippi business school listed in the rankings.
“This ongoing recognition by CEO Magazine reinforces the value of a Millsaps College education,” said Dr. Robert W. Pearigen, president of Millsaps College. “The Else School M.B.A. and E.M.B.A. programs graduate students who have real-world skills and experiences that will be advantageous in their careers and in their future contributions to their professions and communities.”
Developed by the International Graduate Forum for CEO Magazine, the rankings are based on key performance indicators considered to be of interest and value to potential students. International diversity, class sizes, student work experience, faculty-to-student ratios, and faculty qualifications—both academic and professional—have been given considerable weight.
The most recent issue of CEO Magazine also includes an article about the M.B.A. and E.M.B.A. programs offered by the Else School of Management. The story features the experiences of Russell Morrison, a 2012 M.B.A. graduate who now works for Wealthview Capital; Julie Tauzin, a national account manager for Alcon Surgical who received an E.M.B.A. in 2013; Allie Cortes, who graduated with an M.B.A. in 2014 and works in the assurance services practice of Ernest & Young; and Haley Fisackerly, CEO of Entergy Mississippi and employer of graduates of the Millsaps M.B.A. and E.M.B.A. programs.
Dr. Kimberly G. Burke, dean of the Else School, said the story highlights the importance of the relationships that Else School students forge with faculty members.
“I believe that the commitment and dedication of the faculty to creating and maintaining these relationships is the primary reason the Else School is ranked, once again, in the top tier of MBA and EMBA programs,” she said.
