Financial Times 2022 ranking of the world's top 100 Executive MBAs: KEDGE moves up 3 places and transforms its Global MBA around the positive contribution of companies

With the 42nd best Global Executive MBA in the world, KEDGE Business School has improved its ranking, moving up 3 places compared to 2021, thus confirming its position as one of the top 5 EMBAs in France and one of the top 10 in China. It has also announced that its Global Executive MBA has been transformed to focus on the positive environmental and societal contribution of companies.

Confirmed international recognition

This performance confirms the professional progression and salary increases of KEDGE Global Executive MBA graduates in France and China, despite the continuing impact of the (post) pandemic crisis. On average, alumni benefit from a salary increase of over 70% three years after graduation.

"In such an uncertain and increasingly competitive environment, improving our ranking as one the best Executive MBAs in the world is first and foremost a great source of satisfaction for our alumni who took part in this survey, and also for all our MBA participants throughout the world who have chosen to follow our MBA programmes over the last two years" affirms Alexandre de Navailles, Managing Director of KEDGE

In China, where the programme is run in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, KEDGE's Global MBA is one of the top 10 EMBAs offered. It has been recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education and also boasts one of the best gender ratios.

"In France, being among the top 5 Executive MBAs means nothing if our participants do not find content in our courses that is in line with current challenges: being resilient in the face of successive crises, proactively addressing environmental and societal issues, and rethinking corporate governance and their own leadership – in short, coming up with business models to support companies in a context of change" adds Professor Hervé Remaud, Director of KEDGE MBAs

A programme focused on transitions

The KEDGE Executive MBA is a programme for personal and professional transformation that has been redesigned to prepare executives and managers to make informed and wise decisions in the face of challenges relating to the digital and ecological transition, energy savings, and adaptation to the new geostrategic situation. All the various components of business models (strategic innovation, supply chain, digital marketing, customer experience, management) are therefore addressed in light of current and future societal issues.

KEDGE's Executive MBA is now offered in a hybrid format (70% face-to-face and 30% distance learning), and its spirit persists with ever more support provided to participants to help them develop their resilience, agility, and ability to think and guide the development of their structure. The experiential part of the programme has been strengthened, with the collaboration of companies willing to share their best practices. Lastly, sustainability is the backbone of the programme and is also central to its deployment, with a commitment to measure its carbon footprint and reduce it year after year.
