Executive MBA programme rises in its second year in the Financial Times rankings

The EMBA class of 2010

Cambridge Judge Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) degree programme for senior working professionals was today (19 October) ranked 24th in the Financial Times (FT) ranking of global MBA programmes, up from 36th last year.

This year was the second year the Cambridge Judge EMBA programme, which is now in its seventh year, was eligible to be ranked by the FT.

Among areas of the FT survey, Cambridge Judge was ranked seventh for career progress as calculated by seniority and size of company now compared to before their EMBA; 14th for “aims achieved,” or the extent to which students fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an EMBA; and 14th for pre-EMBA work experience according to seniority and years of positions held, company size and overseas work experience. Cambridge Judge also moved up to 24th in the Research Rank and 29th in the Doctoral Rank of the FT survey.

Dean of the School, Christoph Loch, said:

We are pleased that our efforts in creating exceptional educational programmes are recognised, and this is a strong step forward for a programme that is so young in a well-established market. We are carving out a unique identity that combines academic rigour with a focus on addressing the real-world challenges and opportunities facing business executives in an entrepreneurial environment.
