EMBA Global programme climbs FT ranking

15 Oct 2012


The London Business School/Columbia Business School Executive MBA Global (EMBA Global) programme, has been ranked number two in the world by the Financial Times, behind Kellogg-HKUST.


The rankings are based on various measures, some of which (including career progression, how the programme lived up to expectations, percentage salary increase) come from a poll of alumni three years after graduation.

Anne Sandford, Director of Executive MBA Global programmes, said: “We’re delighted to see that the EMBA Global programme has moved up one place to be ranked Number two among the very best in the world.  Its success is a tribute to the strength of our partnership with Columbia Business School, the outstanding quality of our cohorts and the amazing faculty teaching on the programme.”

This year‘s highlights from the rankings were:

  • The average salary for the alumni surveyed rose by 89% three years after completing the programme*.

  • We were placed sixth highest overall on the salary percentage increase measure.

  • Overall salary (worth 20% of the total ranking) improved by over $5,000 since last year, placing us eighth overall in terms of actual salary.

  • We were placed eighth overall for aims achieved, meaning that the programme delivered very well against the cohort’s expectations.
