2017 Financial Times Executive Education rankings: EDHEC gains 7 places and enters the top 30 worldwide

Written on 15 May 2017.


After making strong progress in the two individual rankings, EDHEC Business School entered the world top 30 in the Financial Times Executive Education combined ranking published today, thereby consolidating its position among the world’s top business schools.

EDHEC gained 7 places in the annual rankings for both Custom Programmes designed for specific companies and for Open Programmes catering to executives and business leaders from different companies.

For Custom Programmes, EDHEC ranked 22nd worldwide and 3rd among French schools, behind HEC and ESSEC.

EDHEC obtained top scores on the following criteria:

  • Future use (customer loyalty)
  • Faculty (quality of teaching)
  • Follow-up for participants
  • Programme design

 

Reflecting the progress made on these individual rankings, EDHEC entered the world top 30 on the combined ranking, in 29th position. It became the 4th French school to join the top 30, after HEC, ESSEC and ESCP.

“This result vindicates EDHEC Executive Education’s positioning and underscores the close ties maintained with businesses”, comments Benoît Arnaud, Director of Executive Education and MBAs at EDHEC Business School.

This latest classification confirms EDHEC’s strong progress in the global rankings.  Earlier this year, the School gained 11 places in the FT European Business School rankings (14th) and 10 places in the FT MBA worldwide rankings.
