For the third 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 in the 2015 rankings.
“These rankings reinforce what we already know – the Else School of Management is among the best programs in the country and around the world,” said Dr. Robert W. Pearigen, president of Millsaps College. “The dedicated faculty, led by Dr. Kimberly G. Burke, is an amazing asset to Millsaps and Mississippi.”
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. program offered by the Else School of Management. The story features the experiences of Jill M. Beneke, who earned an M.B.A. from Millsaps in 1987 and is CEO and president of Pileum Corp., Metrix Solutions and Beneke Consulting, and Richard Hugh Mills Jr., who earned an M.B.A. from Millsaps in 1988 and is founder and CEO of Tenrgys, LLC and Tellus Operating Group.
Dr. Kimberly G. Burke, dean of the Else School, said the story focuses upon 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 M.B.A. and E.M.B.A. programs,” she said.
