This year was the third year Cambridge Judge’s EMBA programme, which is now in its eighth year, was eligible to be ranked by the FT, and it has risen in the rankings every year, from 36th in its initial year of eligibility in 2014.

Among areas of the FT survey, Cambridge Judge was ranked fifth at 82 per cent for “aims achieved” or the extent to which students fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an EMBA; and 13th for salary increase between before the EMBA and now at 71 per cent. Cambridge Judge also moved up in the research ranking, and ranked highly in other categories such as the per cent of international faculty and international students.

Dean of the School, Christoph Loch, said:

We are pleased to be recognised for our work in creating an exceptional Executive MBA programme, and this is another strong step in the programme’s development. We have carved out a unique identity that combines academic excellence and an entrepreneurial framework to address real-world issues facing business executives, and our EMBA programme is going from strength to strength. We are happy that this survey recognises our quality, although our strategy is not dictated by rankings, which do not reflect all the things we are trying to achieve with our programmes.
