A Financial Times ranking released Monday identifies the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business as No. 1 in the United States for custom executive education facilities and program support.

The college’s overall rank for custom executive education is No. 4 nationwide among public institutions, marking its fifth consecutive year in the top five of the rankings.

“No school in the United States does a better job taking care of their clients, and that’s something of which we’re immensely proud,” says Bruce Behn, associate dean for graduate and executive education at Haslam.

Behn says that providing a full-service, high-touch experience to those pursuing executive education has long been a hallmark of Haslam’s graduate and executive education programs.

“These are accomplished people, and their time comes at a premium,” he says. “We have always made sure their experiences are seamless and uncomplicated, allowing them to focus exclusively on their growth as executives. The latest Financial Times rankings are a reflection of our efforts.”

Internationally, Haslam ranked No. 3 for facilities and support and rose eight spots to the No. 20 provider of custom executive education overall.

The Financial Times ranks the world’s top 80 business schools providing custom executive education and bases its rankings on both individual surveys completed by the schools’ clients and institutional data.
