2019 Financial Times Executive MBA ranking - KEDGE Business School strengthens its position among the top 40 best EMBAs in the world
KEDGE Global Executive MBA alumni perform well regardless of the difficult business environment in 2019, as they placed the KEDGE Global Executive MBA 39th in this year’s Financial Times EMBA ranking. Consistent with last year’s position in the FT EMBA ranking, KEDGE Global Executive MBA once again solidly assures its position in the top 40 Executive MBAs worldwide and in the top 15 Executive MBAs in Europe and China.

In such a competitive environment, comforting our position in the top 40 of the best Executive MBA in the world is an achievement that I’m very satisfied with, giving us a strong indication of how competitive our Executive MBA alumni are three years after completing their program.

Jean-Luc FAYE, Director of Executive Education at KEDGE Business School

Year after year, the KEDGE Global Executive MBA finds itself in the second tier of the FT ranking (top 7 – 44) alongside some of the most prestigious business schools in the world: IMD (20th), Duke University (29th), Nanyang Business School (37th), The University of Hong Kong (41th). In China, where the programme is offered with the collaboration of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the KEDGE Global Executive MBA enjoys a comfortable position attracting international-savvy managers with a front-seat on the Chinese economy. With one of the best gender balance ratio at almost parity (48%), the KEDGE Global Executive MBA guarantees diversity in backgrounds and world views. The salary increase for students on the course is 87 %, putting the school in 13th position in this category.

In France, KEDGE Global Executive MBA comforts its number 4 position behind a solid HEC, and on the same tier with ESCP and INSEAD. When I look at European Higher Education institutions, we consistently improve our ranking and consolidate the top 12 position in China. I’m very pleased for our EMBA alumni who contributed to such an outcome, confirming the greater recognition of KEDGE Global Executive MBA brand for its distinctive assets and value proposition.

Professor Hervé Remaud, Director of KEDGE GEMBA

Among these distinctive assets, the KEDGE Global Executive MBA program offers new specialisations in 2020 including ‘Sports and Entertainment Business Management’ (in Paris), ‘The future of the Supply Chain’ (in Shanghai), and increases its international reach with the opening of its Global EMBA program in Bombay.
