LBS open and custom programmes ranked in top 10 worldwide
London Business School’s Executive Education offering, which includes open and custom programmes, has climbed two places to take a record top four spot (4th) in the Financial Times Executive Education Ranking 2017.
The record result sees the School now firmly established among the few schools worldwide with top 10 rankings for both open and custom Executive Education solutions.
The top ten result (10th) for open programmes, up two places from 2016, reflects improvements on six out of ten programme criteria, which include faculty and programme design. The School ranks third globally for international participants and the quality of the learning environment. London Business School’s global outlook and increased partnering is confirmed as the quantity of its programmes developed in conjunction with other business schools has jumped up seven places (6th).
The School’s custom programmes rank 6th this year with improvements in faculty diversity and quantity of programmes developed or taught in conjunction with other business schools. The School’s custom programmes rank second in the world for the extent to which clients’ ideas are integrated into the programme and for the School’s effectiveness at integrating its latest research.
Carlos Hornstein, Associate Dean, Executive Education, London Business School, said: “We are delighted with a record set of results. The top four combined position reflects our continued investment in innovative and tailored Executive Education solutions, and the emphasis we place on creating dynamic partnerships that deliver path-breaking business results.”
