PRESS RELEASE – 27.10.2020 

2020 Financial Times ranking of the world’s top 100 Executive MBAs: KEDGE consolidates its position among the top global EMBAs 

Ranking 41st of the best Global Executive MBAs in the world, KEDGE Business School has consolidated its position among the international leaders in education, according to the 2020 Financial Times industry ranking. 

This result confirms the career and salary growth achieved in both France and China by graduates of KEDGE’s Global Executive MBA despite difficult economic conditions. They report an average salary boost of 75% just three years on from graduation. 

In such a competitive environment, consolidating our position in the second tier of the best Executive MBAs in the world is an achievement of which we can all be proud”, explains Alexandre de Navailles, KEDGE Director General. “We’re well on the way with our international development strategy, particularly thanks to our digital offer and the flexibility that has been inherent to our programme since its creation”. 

Year after year, KEDGE’s Global Executive MBA has confirmed its place in this second group made up of some of the most prestigious business schools in the world, including the likes of Warwick Business School (22nd), Duke University (34th) and New York University: Stern (42nd). 

In China, where the programme is available in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, KEDGE’s Global Executive MBA is once again in the top 15 EMBAs offered in the country, recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education with, in particular, one of the best gender balances. 

In France, KEDGE’s Global Executive MBA is ranked 5th behind the major Parisian institutions. We’re constantly working to adapt our programme to serve the ambitions of our graduates and their career progression. After all, they are the ones greatly contributing to the results of these rankings and the influence of KEDGE throughout the world. We want them to be proud of their education and their belonging to the KEDGE community”, adds Professor Hervé Remaud, Director of KEDGE’s MBAs. 

Now offered in hybrid format (in person and online), the spirit of KEDGE’s Executive MBA continues with the strengthening of the experiential side of the programme. From the start of the December 2020 term, a number of workshops will be available to develop participants’ soft skills, as well as boosting interaction between those on the different French campuses (Bordeaux, Marseille, Paris) and in China (Shanghai).
