People are giving a hoot about Kennesaw State University's Executive MBA program.

CEO Magazine ranked it the best such program in Georgia and the seventh best in the world, according to a KSU news release.

The executive MBA program is for those working full-time who still want to earn a master’s of business administration degree.


Kennesaw State's program was also named top in the state last year but has moved up two spots internationally. This is the fourth year the KSU Coles College of Business' EMBA was recognized by the magazine.

The EMBA program at Coles enrolls 45 working professionals annually in its 19-month program.

“Being ranked among the best in the world reflects years of hard work by our faculty, staff, students and leadership team,” said Kathy Schwaig, dean of Coles.
