KEDGE in the TOP 30 business schools in Europe

The ranking of the best European Business Schools is the result of the compilation of rankings of several Executive Education and higher Education programmes carried out throughout the year by the Financial Times. This year's inclusion in the top 30 confirms KEDGE's excellent momentum following the recent Figaro Etudiant, Shanghai and ChangeNow-Les Echos Start rankings.

The Financial Times ranking is based on criteria such as salary levels three years after graduation,  career progression after three years in business, the international orientation of the school and the excellence of its teaching staff.

KEDGE's progress can be explained by the excellent performances obtained in the rankings of the various Financial Times rankings for the year:

  • Executive education programmes :
    • Tailor-made programmes (in-company training): 51st (+1)
    • Open programmes (inter-company courses): 39th (up 6 places)
    • Global Executive MBA: 18th in the world, up 24 places.
  • Higher education programmes :
    • Master in Management (PGE): 48th in the world, up 19 places since 2021

"On an international level, this progress is the fruit of the constant and sustained investment of all our teams, teaching and research staff. It underlines the success of our KEDGE 25 strategic plan and once again illustrates the excellent momentum we have been building for several months.

The recognition of our diplomas in France and on the European stage is proof of the excellence of our courses and our teaching staff", says Alexandre de Navailles, Managing Director of KEDGE Business School.
