"Our Austin Executive MBA Program proudly announces its new Austin Campus location. This move signifies our strong commitment to the Austin community. We view our new state-of-the-art facility as one that can be used by current students, alumni, and business partners," said David Wallace, director of the Austin program.

The Executive MBA (EMBA) program at Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business is ranked among the best programs in the world by Bloomberg Businessweek's 2011 Executive MBA ranking. Baylor is ranked 37 worldwide, and the program, which includes campuses in Dallas and Austin, also ranked third among programs in Texas. The Financial Times ranked the program 35th in 2011, up from 39th in 2010, for United States-only based programs.

The 21-month Austin program is based on a learning environment that enriches the classroom because students interact extensively with their peers as well as Baylor's faculty. The program equips students to compete and add value in their companies and communities. The EMBA program intentionally maintains a small class size [not to exceed 40] in order to create an optimal learning environment. Classes are held on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to10 p.m.
