KEDGE Business School is the 29th best business school in Europe, according to the Financial Times 2014 Top 80 ranking.
It has moved up three places, which is the best performance for any French school in the Top 30. KEDGE Business School thus continues to rise in the benchmark French and European rankings, and it stands far ahead of rivals such as Neoma (47th), Skema (55th), ESC Rennes (56th), Audencia (62nd) and Toulouse (63rd).
"This result reflects the extremely hard work of our students, teachers, graduates and staff," says Thomas Froehlicher, Director General and Dean of KEDGE BS. "They are all now part of a great community, whose influence we are going to extend across the world, and especially in emerging countries. Thanks to the strategic choices made by our governance, we have reached a critical size and are now able to position ourselves as a benchmark global school when it comes to research, geostrategic international development and professional diploma courses, including our Executive MBA programme, ranked 14th in Europe and 27th in the world. We intend to drive even further forward with strategic investments to allow for innovations in teaching and ambitious digital transformation. The excellent financial health of the group means that now, more than ever, we have the resources that match our ambitions. This is why KEDGE Business School is reaffirming its ambition to make it into the European Top 15 within the next five years. In early 2015, KEDGE will announce its strategy to achieve this goal with the new Paris campus."
KEDGE BS entered the Financial Times Best European Business School ranking at number 32 in 2013. The progress made since is another sign of the international recognition the school has earned, especially with its unique positioning in China, developed over the last twelve years.
This performance comes after a leap of 16 places in the FT 2014 Top 100 Best Executive MBA programmes worldwide, placing the KEDGE BS - SJTU Global MBA 27th in the world and 4th best in France, just behind HEC, INSEAD and ESCP.
KEDGE has its roots in Bordeaux, Marseille, and Toulon but is ever bolder in its international ambitions.
