The Financial Times Updates Executive MBA Ranking for 2015

The Tsinghua-INSEAD joint EMBA program takes the top spot

The Financial Times has updated its Executive MBA ranking for 2015.

Once again, this year, joint EMBA programs dominate the top spots. For the fourth year in a row, the same five joint EMBA program took the top five spots, albeit in a different order from last year.

This year, the top spot belongs to the Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA, which is offered through a partnership between the Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management and INSEAD Business School. This is the first time in the ranking's history that a program which includes a business school from mainland China has led the ranking.

Second place, for the second straight year, belongs to the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program. The Trium EMBA, offered through a partnership between HEC Paris, the London School of Economics (LSE), and NYU's Stern School of Business, has dropped from the top position to take spot number three.

The LBS-Columbia joint EMBA-Global Americas and Europe program takes position number four, while the UCLA-NUS EMBA rounds out the top five.

You can see the top 20 EMBA programs and their changes from last year below.

New additions to the ranking include Singapore Management University's Lee Kong Chian School of Business, which comes in at position 36, Germany's Frankfurt School of Finance and Management (93), Toulouse Business School (97), BI Norwegian Business School (99), and the Lisbon MBA (100).

To be considered for the ranking, business schools need to be accredited by either EQUIS or AACSB. Ranking is based on school and alumni surveys. Salary increase and salary today are the biggest factors, each accounting for 20 percent of the ranking.
