The Financial Times Updates Executive MBA Ranking for 2020

The Kellogg-HKUST EMBA retakes the number one spot this year

The Financial Times has updated its Executive MBA (EMBA) Ranking for 2020. 

This year, the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program, a joint offering between HKUST Business School and Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, has retaken the number one position. It had fallen to position number two last year, but led the ranking between 2016 and 2018. This year, the average salary for graduates who completed the program in 2017 is a whopping $528,057 per year, the highest of all 100 EMBA programs included in the ranking. (The average salary for all schools in the ranking is $226,436.)

In second place is the Global EMBA program, which is delivered by CEIBS Business School. This program was ranked fifth last year. 

The HEC Paris International EMBA program, which was number one last year, has fallen to position number three.

HEC Paris is also involved in this year's number four program, the Trium Global EMBA, which is offered through a partnership between the French school, LSE, and NYU - Stern.

Rounding out the top-five is the joint Tsinghua-Insead Dual Degree EMBA. It's risen four spots this year. See below for the top EMBA programs, according to the FT, as well as their changes from last year.

To determine these rankings, the FT uses two surveys: one for the schools and the other for alumni. Some factors that are included in the ranking include career progress, work experience, aims achieved, and salary. Interestingly, salaries of nonprofit / public sector workers and full-time students are not included in the salary calculations.
