London Business School gains in FT ranking
London, October 27, 2010
London Business School is the only leading business school in the world to be ranked twice in the top ten in the recently published Financial Times Executive MBA ranking.
The School’s EMBA-Global programme, run in partnership with Columbia Business School, has been ranked number two in the world, up one place from last year and the Executive MBA, with its London and Dubai intakes, is ranked number six in the world, up two places from 2009.
The ranking, which is now in its tenth year, is based on three key groupings - alumni career progress, school diversity, and ideas generation.
It uses data collected from two sets of questionnaires completed by alumni who have been in the workplace for three years since their graduation and by business schools themselves.
Both programmes scored highly in terms of the percentage salary increase (109 per cent and 90 per cent respectively), and while the EMBA-Global graduates experienced the greatest salary gain of any of the top 10 schools ($57,727), for career progress there was a jump of six places to 5th position for our Executive MBA alumni.
Overall, the ranking demonstrates a high level of satisfaction by our alumni, with EMBA-Global ranked 3rd and the Executive MBA ranked 5th in terms of ‘aims achieved’.
Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, dean of London Business School, said: “This is another example of independent recognition of the value of our London Business School Executive MBA programmes and it is rewarding to see the success of our alumni”.
Diane Morgan, associate dean, degree programmes and career services, added: “For many years, we have consistently been ranked in the top ten worldwide and we are now the highest ranked European business school providing Executive MBAs.”
“Our students are taught by world-class faculty and get to share diverse perspectives with peers from a wide variety of nationalities, job functions and industry sectors. The internationalism of our students, faculty and board is recognised in today’s rankings, which overall confirm what we have always known; that studying at London Business School is a truly transformational experience,” Morgan concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
