Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business and Mercer University-Atlanta’s Stetson School of Business and Economics both tied for 22 on the worldwide list. Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business came in at 37.

According to GSU, the publication looks at faculty quality, international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty-to-student ratio, cost, international exposure, work experience, professional development, gender parity and delivery methods.

New ranking shows which Georgia graduate programs are best in U.S.

This is the third year the KSU Coles College of Business’ EMBA was recognized by the magazine.

“This recognition underscores the quality of our integrated curriculum, the dedication of our Executive MBA-only faculty and the high caliber of our students,” said Alison Keefe, executive director of the program.
