EDHEC Executive Education confirms its place among Europe’s leaders

Written on 23 May 2016.


The Financial Times has just published its 2016 Executive Education rankings: EDHEC was rated 36th worldwide (19th in Europe) and 29th for custom programmes.
For all executive education programmes, EDHEC Business School stands 19th among European institutions and 5th among French schools (after HEC, INSEAD, ESSEC and ESCP).

This ranking confirms the quality of the School’s executive education programmes for managers and directors.

The ranking emphasised a number of aspects including the quality of training (seminars delivered outside France), follow-up of participants and new skills and learning.

“This result vindicates the development strategy pursued by EDHEC over the last few years. All of our research and management training activities are geared to having a positive impact on companies’ growth and managerial practices”, underlines Benoit Arnaud, Associate Dean for Executive Education.

This success confirms that EDHEC Business School’s executive education programmes are on a par with the world’s best, while also cementing its position among the leading cluster of business schools in Europe and France.
