Executive MBA ranked 25th by FT


Cambridge Judge Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) degree programme for senior working professionals was today (18 October) ranked 25th in the Financial Times (FT) ranking of global EMBA programmes.

EMBA class of 2016.

Among areas of the latest FT survey, Cambridge Judge was ranked third out of 100 EMBA programmes in “aims achieved”, with 81% of those surveyed saying they fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an EMBA, and ninth in career progress, or changes in the level of seniority and size of the company alumni now work in compared to before their EMBA.

Dean of the Business School, Professor Mauro Guillén, said:

“Our EMBA programme reflects the inspirational spirit of Cambridge Judge Business School in focusing on students as individuals to offer the very best educational experience. The intimate approach of Cambridge Judge allows such a personalised focus, and we plan to extend this to every stage of our alumni’s lives and careers through lifelong learning.

“We are particularly proud that the latest FT ranking places the Business School third in the category of aims achieved, as this shows we are helping students in their chosen direction – whether that is changing sectors, companies or location, or advancing within their current organisation.

“This is a very exciting time for the Executive MBA as we broaden our international footprint and exposure. We are preparing to welcome applications later this year for a new Global Executive MBA programme to be taught in Shenzhen, China, and Cambridge, UK beginning in January 2023, which will complement the current Cambridge-based EMBA programme. This will be the first time Cambridge Judge provides regular MBA teaching outside of Cambridge, offering an opportunity for candidates to develop their professional networks in China and the wider Asia-Pacific region, thereby enriching both the EMBA programme and the wider Business School. “Rankings such as this highlight the varying approaches of business schools around the world, and such differentiation is welcomed as it allows students to choose among these varying styles and methods. Cambridge Judge Business School prides itself on an inclusive ability to attract students from broadly different backgrounds and sectors – including corporate, non-profit, government, and the creative industries – and we are confident that our approach continues to make Cambridge Judge a very special place.”
