CBS EMBA now in top 50 in the Financial Times 2016 EMBA ranking!

We are very proud to share that thanks to responses from our 2013 EMBA class, the CBS Executive MBA made place 50 in the Global Financial Times EMBA Ranking 2016!

The EMBA has climbed a further 12 places since the 2015 ranking placing the program among the elite schools in the top 50. With the additional 12 places this year, the CBS EMBA has moved up an impressive 41 places in total since 2014.

Compared to the previous year, the most significant impact on the school’s ranking performance is in the areas of average salary and salary increase measured three years after the MBA. The participants’ level of work experience has also increased our position. Additionally, the international diversity component raises the CBS EMBA to a valuable position.

“The triple-accredited programme is ranked among the world’s best EMBA by delivering a dynamic and consistently updated curriculum that places the individual in the driver’s seat of today’s business environment. Participants who enrol in the Executive MBA from CBS should expect executive education of the very highest quality”, says Poul Hedegaard, CBS MBA director.

Financial Times practices strict criteria in order for EMBA programmes to be considered for inclusion. The schools must be accredited by either the US’s Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business or the European Equis accreditation bodies and the programmes must also have run for at least four consecutive years and produced at least 30 graduates each year. A record 137 programmes took part in the 2016 ranking process, up from 129 the previous year.
