The Financial Times Releases Executive MBA Ranking 2016

Global Executive MBA programs take 4 out of the top 5 spots

The Financial Times has named its top 100 Executive MBA programs for 2016 and, like previous years, global programs have dominated the top five.

The ranking rates the 100 best programs worldwide for working senior executives.

The Sino-American program from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Kellogg School of Management has returned to the top spot, swapping places with the EMBA from Tsinghua University/Insead, which came in second place this year. 

The TRIUM Global Executive MBA, jointly delivered by NYU Stern, LSE and HEC Paris was placed third. The joint program from Washington University's Olin Business School and Fudan University took fourth place, while Insead's single-school program placed fourth, the only single-school program to break the top five. The FT said this was the first time in five years that a single-school program reached the top five.

The FT said that, "the strength of Kellogg/HKUST is the quality of its participants. Not only does its small cohort of about 50 allow the school to select highly experienced participants, it also creates a strong bond between them."

The program's graduates also enjoyed the biggest financial rewards, with an average salary of $469,000 three years after graduation.
For the EMBA ranking, the FT surveys business schools, as well as alumni who graduated three years ago, to determine career progression. It also publishes an explanation of its methodology.

The full Financial Times top 100 EMBA list can be seen on its website.
