Chief Executive magazine highlights the Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University as one of the top business schools for CEOs. The July issue of the magazine includes the results of a survey of the business schools they have used to educate themselves‚ their top managers or their board members.

The CEOs were asked to choose from among Business Week’s Top 25 business schools. Yet many of the CEOs surveyed bypassed that list and nominated schools that did not appear on that list‚ including the Coles College.

“We’re delighted‚ but not completely surprised‚” says Coles College Dean Tim Mescon. “We have always prided ourselves on offering a ‘real world’ education. While this can be hard to measure‚ this survey proves that America’s CEOs appreciate our positive results. In addition‚ our students have won national collegiate sales and business plan competitions‚ besting students from larger and more commonly−recognized schools.”

The Coles College MBA programs include the Executive MBA‚ which meets one weekend a month in the state of the art executive education center; the BellSouth−Cingular Executive MBA program‚ which offers onsite classes for employees of BellSouth and Cingular; the Career Growth MBA‚ which offers flexible night and weekend classes on campus‚ at the Cobb Galleria Centre‚ and in Dalton; and the WebMBA‚ the state of Georgia's online MBA® program.

Kennesaw State University is a comprehensive‚ residential institution with a growing student population of 18‚000 from 129 countries. The third largest university in the state‚ and a member of the 34−institution University System of Georgia‚ KSU offers more than 55 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
