The Financial Times has updated its Executive MBA Ranking for 2014.
This year, the Trium Global EMBA program leads the list. Trium is a 17-month program offered through a partnership between HEC Paris, the London School of Economics (LSE), and New York University's Stern School of Business.
In second place is the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program, which is offered jointly by Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Until this year, the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA had held the top spot for five straight years.
Indeed, like last year, all EMBA programs in the top five are joint programs offered by at least two business schools. The third spot belongs to the Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA program, while spot number four is held by the UCLA-NUS EMBA, which is a partnership between UCLA and the National University of Singapore Business School. The EMBA-Global Americas and Europe, which is a joint offering from Columbia Business School and London Business School, rounds out the top five.
Place number six is held by Wharton's MBA for Executives program, while spot seven belongs to the Washington-Fudan EMBA, which is offered jointly by WUSTL - Olin and China's Fudan University.
Singapore's Nanyang Business School's EMBA this year has jumped five positions to break into the top ten, landing at position number eight. The EMBA offered by China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) holds steady at position number 10.
IE Business School's EMBA gains two spots to land at position number 13.
This year's EMBA ranking includes four new entrants. Cambridge University's Judge Business School's EMBA has debuted at position number 36, while France's Grenoble's Business School's EMBA enters at position number 70. The two other new programs snuck in at the very bottom: Turkey's Sabanci University School of Management is ranked 98, while Brazil's Coppead Business School is ranked 100.
As always, the Financial Times' EMBA ranking rates the programs on a variety of key factors, including alumni's salary today, as well as salary increase, career progression, and diversity, among others.
