Cambridge Judge Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) degree programme for senior working professionals was today (15 October) ranked 25th in the Financial Times (FT) ranking of global EMBA programmes.
This year was the fifth year Cambridge Judge’s Executive MBA programme, which is now in its tenth year, was eligible to be ranked by the FT. The programme was ranked 15th in 2017.
Among areas of the latest FT survey, Cambridge Judge was ranked third at 84 per cent for “aims achieved” or the extent to which students fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an EMBA; 13th in career progress or change in the level of seniority and the size of the company alumni work in now compared to before their EMBA; and 14th for salary increase between before the EMBA and now at 72 per cent.
Dean of the School, Professor Christoph Loch, said:
“Our EMBA programme has been highly recognised globally since it began a decade ago, and is an important part of Cambridge Judge Business School’s mission to combine academic excellence and an entrepreneurial ethos to address real-world issues with demonstrable impact. Our strategy is not dictated by rankings: while the survey recognises some of our achievements, the survey’s heavy focus on salary does not reflect all of the goals and values of our programmes.”
