The Duke Fuqua School of Business offers four distinct MBA programs. In addition to its traditional daytime MBA program, it offers three executive MBA programs, each geared toward business people with a certain amount of experience. It is very important for applicants to carefully consider which of these programs is best suited for their particular needs.

The school boasts very high rankings for both its full-time and executive MBA programs. Its supportive team culture, strong Career Management Center, and continued ability to attract top faculty from rival business schools should help it continue to do well in the rankings and, even more importantly, in the eyes of its students and alumni.
