The Global EMBA at IEseems much stronger, unless you specifically need France or Singapore as a hub. No sure why Insead is one place higher in the FT ranking: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jgl8jassckey6kb/Screenshot%202016-03-07%2022.53.59.png?dl=0

But if the choice is between the Insead GEMBA or the 'regular" EMBA at IE (rather than its global MBA), then Insead is better.

That's a tough one. The FT rankings show them pretty much neck and neck, with IE graduates having a bit better salaries. Your choice might also depend on the scheduling, because each has modules that are a bit different...

Thanks Duncan and Xinflux, appreciated. The truth is the GEMBA at IE targeting Global Directors rather than senior executives that INSEAD targeting. However, I think INSEAD is like Harvard of Europe in the reputation and fame.

Obviously Insead is nothing like Harvard, which is an ancient, famous comprehensive university like Cambridge or Edinburgh, but it certainly is one of Europe's three or four most famous business schools. At IE and at Insead the quality of GEMBA students will be similar to other top GEMBA programmes like LBS-Columbia or IESE. But since you are looking at the regular EMBA at IE, its cohort will be (at best) similar to the regular EMBA cohort at schools like ESCP, ESMT, LBS and WHU.

So my take: IE GEMBA > Insead GEMBA > IE EMBA
