November 1, 1997

by Mark Miester

The A.B. Freeman School of Business isn't just one of the best schools for future executives. According to a new survey by Business Week, it's one of the best for current executives as well. In the Oct. 20 issue of the magazine, Business Week ranked the Freeman School's executive MBA program among the nation's 20 best.

Business Week surveyed 61 EMBA programs to compile its rankings. The magazine praised the EMBA program, which is part of Freeman's Stewart Center for Executive Education, for its international offerings.

In addition to New Orleans, the Stewart Center currently operates programs in Chile, Ecuador and Taiwan. The EMBA program is only open to managers with a minimum of seven years management experience. It lasts 19 months and follows a lockstep curriculum, with classes meeting on alternating Fridays and Saturdays.

In addition, there are two intensive weeks and a required international trip. Freeman began its executive MBA program in 1982. Since then more than 700 executives have been awarded degrees. In addition, the Stewart Center also offers custom-designed, non-degree-granting executive education programs.

The Freeman School has had two good months. In September, Success magazine ranked the Freeman School as one of the 25 best for entrepreneurship.
