Our guest will be Jennifer Merritt, management education editor at BusinessWeek, who'll announce the magazine's latest rankings of the best schools for both executive MBA and non-degree executive education programs.
The purpose of the biennial surveys is to identify which schools are doing the finest job of helping mid- to late-career executives sharpen their analytical skills, learn the latest management theories, and improve their leadership skills.
Here's just a hint of how things turned out: In BusinessWeek's 2003 EMBA rankings, several newcomers have joined the top listing. Increasingly, EMBA students are paying for the degree themselves (employers used to foot most tuition bills). And now that they're paying, exec MBA students are demanding more of B-schools.
During the live chat, Merritt will also unveil the magazine's new rankings of executive education providers. She'll tell you which schools deliver the best custom-made curriculums, and which are offering cutting-edge courses.
To learn which B-schools are offering the best programs for execs, please join us at 6 p.m. EST on Thursday, Oct. 9. Your host will be Mica Schneider (MicaBW), BW Online's reporter covering management education. Hope to see you there!
BusinessWeek Online rotates chat days and times every month so that everyone has a chance to tune in. If you can't attend a live event, you can always read the transcript that we post afterward
