May 13, 2013

TORONTO, ON – In the annu­al rank­ing from the Finan­cial Times, Rot­man Exec­u­tive Pro­grams at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to was named as one of the top providers of exec­u­tive edu­ca­tion in the world.

Exec­u­tive Pro­grams at the Rot­man School of Man­age­ment were ranked 15th glob­al­ly and 1st in Cana­da for open enroll­ment pro­grams, includ­ing being num­ber one in the world for the qual­i­ty of the fac­ul­ty teach­ing the pro­grams and for new skills and learn­ing gained by the par­tic­i­pants. It is the third year in a row that the pro­grams have been num­ber one for new skills and learn­ing.

The open enroll­ment pro­grams, which include high­ly regard­ed offer­ings in cor­po­rate gov­er­nance, lead­er­ship and Inte­gra­tive Think­ing™, were ranked in the top ten in a total of sev­en glob­al cat­e­gories includ­ing the aims achieved of course par­tic­i­pants, course design, teach­ing meth­ods and mate­ri­als, and fol­low-up after the course ends.

“Our pro­grams inspire and equip peo­ple to chal­lenge the sta­tus quo, to make bet­ter deci­sions and to have greater impact so they can build a bet­ter world,” says Michele Milan, man­ag­ing direc­tor of Rot­man Exec­u­tive Pro­grams. “This rank­ing secures our posi­tion as a glob­al leader in exec­u­tive edu­ca­tion and is a trib­ute to the great work that our fac­ul­ty and staff put into the design and exe­cu­tion of our pro­grams.”

The open enroll­ment rank­ings are com­piled using data sup­plied by par­tic­i­pat­ing schools as well as a sur­vey of indi­vid­u­als who com­plet­ed a pro­gram over the past year.

In the sur­vey of cus­tomized exec­u­tive edu­ca­tion pro­grams, the Rot­man School’s pro­grams placed 46th in the world, up a strong twelve posi­tions from the results last year.
