EDHEC's Global MBA has once again been recognised as one of the best programmes worldwide for ESG & Net Zero teaching, international mobility, and career progress in the latest Financial Times full-time MBA rankings published today.

Ranked 57th worldwide, and 14th in Europe, the 10-month programme is also recognised for its impact and return on investment, placing 12th in the world for value for money. 

 

#4 programme worldwide for ESG & Net Zero teaching  
 

The Global MBA programme has been designed to place business ethics, social and environmental issues, and carbon-neutral climate solutions throughout the 10-month curriculum, which is reflected in its position amongst the Top four MBAs worldwide for ESG teaching for the 4th consecutive year. 

EDHEC’s aim is to ensure that graduates are fully aware of the challenges businesses face in leading the fight against climate change and can support organisations in driving positive transformation. The programme provides students with both the knowledge and experience of solving ESG issues through a combination of teaching & practice, including the 5-month Sustainable Impact Challenge. The Challenge sees Global MBA students work on real-life problems presented by companies including IBM, SAP, Somfy, Kautex, Circul'R and Louis Dupont.

 

A top MBA for international opportunities & career development

 

The Global MBA has been consistently ranked by the Financial Times as one of the strongest programmes in the world for international mobility (7th worldwide) and career progression (15th worldwide). With an average of 30 nationalities (and 47% women) in a class of under 80 students from all different backgrounds, the Global MBA provides participants with the skills, experience and perspectives needed to succeed in an international environment.

Following graduation, EDHEC alumni find successful careers outside of their home country: over 70% now work in a different country following completion of the programme. EDHEC MBA graduates are also successful in quickly starting their post-MBA careers and progressing strongly, with 95% finding a job within three months of graduation in a wide variety of sectors (ranked 13th for sector diversity). 

"Businesses around the world are in transformation, and we need responsible and ethical leaders to guide through these complex and impactful times. Our #4 worldwide rank in ESG teaching rewards our strong commitment to educating MBAs to lead a sustainable and responsible future for business. I am also very proud that our Global MBA makes a real impact on student careers and global mobility with the support of world-class career services. " said Sandra Richez, Director of the EDHEC Global MBA.
