Financial Times Executive Education ranking 2023: KEDGE reaches 33rd place among the best schools worldwide

For the past 2 years, KEDGE Business School has continued to rise in the Financial Times Executive Education ranking among the world's best schools. This year, KEDGE Executive Education is ranked an impressive 33rd in the world.

A prestigious ranking for a school still growing internationally.

After achieving 2nd strongest progression by gaining 22 places in 2022, KEDGE gains 5 places in the general ranking in 2023. It is now ranked 33rd alongside the best international business schools.

The Financial Times global ranking dedicated to Executive Education combines the intra-company (Custom programmes) and inter-company (Open programmes) rankings:

  • Custom programmes ranking for in-company training adapted to the needs of organisations, which call on business schools to meet their strategic imperatives. KEDGE moves up one place to 51st.
  • Open programmes ranking for inter-company courses open to participants from different organisations. KEDGE is ranked 39th, up 6 places from 2022.

In their comments, students stressed that they particularly appreciated the pedagogical engineering of the Executive programmes (Open and Custom) as well as the individualised, tailor-made follow-up they have received.

Among French schools, KEDGE ranked 6th in the combined ranking, 10th for Custom programmes and 7th for Open programmes.

KEDGE is an inclusive school, and the gender parity of its programmes was once again particularly well rated this year, reaching 2nd place for France.

The excellence of 5 convictions for the same ambition

In its desire to provide the best possible support for professionals in their projects and to support businesses in their development, KEDGE has integrated five strong convictions into its teaching methods, based on the research carried out by its teaching staff and by analysing skills needed in businesses. These convictions relate to sustainability at the heart of its strategy, renewed management fundamentals, support towards "the new managerial deal", resilience as an asset and the new geopolitical challenges.

The steady overall rise in the Financial Times rankings, which began in 2022, rewards the work carried out in line with these convictions across all Executive Education programmes.

I am very pleased with this ranking, which validates all the efforts we have made in line with our convictions. The recognition of our Executive programmes in a benchmark ranking such as the Financial Times is a strong marker of the quality of our teaching and the professional success of our graduates
