PRESS RELEASE – 09.12.2019

Financial Times 2019 Rankings: KEDGE forges ahead to become 31st best Business School in Europe and 8th best in France.

Now ranked 31th best Business School in Europe out of 95 in total, KEDGE has moved up a further 4 places this year in the Financial Times 2019 international rankings.

And, when it comes to French schools, KEDGE has maintained its ranking at 8th, ahead of most of its direct competitors:

  • Audencia BS (9th in France and 40th in Europe)
  • Skema BS (10th in France and 59th in Europe)
  • Néoma BS (11th in France and 50th in Europe)
  • Rennes BS (12th in France and 56th in Europe)
  • Toulouse BS (13th in France and 57th in Europe)

This performance is testimony to the significant progress already identified last year when KEDGE moved 5 places higher in the rankings. It can also be seen in the school’s standing in four of the Financial Times’ five other league tables:

  • FT - Global EMBA (16th in Europe, up 2 places compared to 2018)
  • FT - Master in Management (20th in Europe, up 18 places compared to 2018)
  • FT - Global EMBA – Open (32nd in Europe, up 4 places compared to 2018)
  • FT - Executive Education – Customised (43rd in Europe)

The Financial Times’ rankings of the best Business Schools in Europe highlights the full extent of KEDGE’s comprehensive range of excellent foundation and advanced training programmes.

The steady upward progress across all rankings is the result of efforts by our teams, students, teachers and research faculty, graduates and all our partners across our full range of programmes.

It is also the result of our strategy to focus on increasing student and graduate satisfaction and employability both nationally and internationally, as well as supporting company transformations.

More than ever, KEDGE is pursuing its ambitions and continuing on its trajectory to be within the top 25 European business schools over the coming years.
