October is an eventful time at London Business School, as we are busy recruiting our 2018 EMBA classes. During this period it is great to see that our hard work and dedication to academic excellence has come to fruition with our EMBA Global Americas and Europe and EMBA Global Asia achieving 4th and 2nd positions in FT rankings.
Our EMBA programme, offered in London and Dubai, has held its position within the top twenty, rising one place to 18. With the majority of the top EMBA positions being occupied by joint programmes, our EMBA scored highly amongst the solo EMBA programmes.
Now in its 17th year, the FT Executive MBA ranking identifies the top 100 EMBA programmes in the world. The ranking measures a combination of 16 metrics covering career progression, diversity and academic quality. This year our EMBA Global Americas and Europe programme has regained its position in the top five, taking fourth place and scoring well for average salaries for graduates, with just over $US250K in a highly competitive market. Our EMBA Global A&E programme also recorded 85% of graduates in the ‘aims achieved’ category, a measure of the extent to which graduates fulfilled their stated goals for doing an Executive MBA.
However, it is not just our EMBA Global A&E programme which is performing well. Our EMBA Global Asia programme, which is run in conjunction with Columbia Business School and The University of Hong Kong has achieved 2nd place in its first ever entry in the annual Financial Times Executive MBA ranking. EMBA-Global Asia scored strongly for salary gain, with an average figure of just under $US320k. Career progression (14th), and international course experience (7th), with 80% of participating students drawn from the international community) served to boost the programme’s appeal.
