The latest Financial Times (FT) ranking Executive MBA programmes indicate that the global center of gravity for business education is moving eastwards.
One remarkable feature of this year’s ranking is that four Fudan University programmes were in the top fifty: Fudan EMBA, Washington University-Fudan University EMBA, University of Hong Kong-Fudan University IMBA, and BI Norwegian Business School-Fudan University MBA.
Although China, the USA and Europe are well represented at the top levels of the rankings the Middle East and North Africa, South Korea and Russia are also hosts to reputable EMBA courses.
This is a ranking of programmes not of campuses or institutions and it is therefore possible for a single school to appear more than one in the tables. In addition, many of the top ranked programmes operate in several countries.
The top five programmes are:
- HEC Paris International EMBA, France/Qatar
- Kellogg-HKUST EMBA, Hong Kong
- Ceibs Global EMBA, China/Switzerland/Ghana
- EMBA-Global Asia, US/Hong Kong/UK
- Trium Global EMBA, France/US/UK/China.
