UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School


Executive Development ranked tops for custom and open-enrollment programs


Bloomberg Businessweek has rated the Executive Development programs at the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School among the world’s best for both custom and open-enrollment programs.

It ranked UNC Kenan-Flagler:

  • No. 13 globally and No. 6 in the United States for custom programs
  • No. 14 globally and No. 8 in the United States for open-enrollment programs
Bloomberg Businessweek’s goal is to “identify the programs that are considered best-in-class by the vast majority of companies that are familiar with them.” Its ranking is based on a survey of client companies that send employees to the schools participating in the ranking. The survey asks the companies to identify the schools whose executive education programs they’re familiar with, and which of those they consider the best.

The Financial Times also consistently ranks UNC Kenan-Flagler custom programs among the best in the world, mostly recently No. 8 globally and No. 4 in the United States.

“We partner with organizations to develop their top talent and solve real business challenges,” said Susan Cates, president of UNC Executive Development. “We appreciate their recognition of our faculty’s and staff’s commitment to excellence and the value that our collaboration brings to their organizations.”
