Cambridge Judge Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) degree programme for senior working professionals was today (26 October) ranked 31st in the Financial Times (FT) ranking of global EMBA programmes.
Among areas of the latest FT survey, Cambridge Judge was ranked third in career progress, or changes in the level of seniority and size of the company alumni now work in compared to before their EMBA; Cambridge Judge was ninth in “aims achieved”, or the extent to which students fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an EMBA.
Dean of the School, Professor Christoph Loch, said:
“The mission of our EMBA programme is to combine academic excellence, innovation and real-world experience to enable students to make a demonstrable impact on key areas of society ranging from health to finance to the environment. More than 40 per cent of respondents in the relevant EMBA cohort we surveyed went into entrepreneurial activity, which Cambridge Judge encourages through its own programmes and ties to the broader enterprise ecosystem in Cambridge and beyond. We are very proud of the way our EMBA students contribute to society in whatever endeavour they pursue – whether in the private sector, nongovernmental organisations or entrepreneurship.
“We continue to be recognised in these rankings in the important areas of career progression and whether students achieved their aims, which underlines the value of the programme to our students and alumni. We will reflect on the rankings to further improve our EMBA programme in certain areas, as our ambition is to ensure that future rankings reflect the proven excellence of our programme.”
