London Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) programme has been named one of the world’s best by the Financial Times (FT).
LBS’s EMBA programme has ranked ninth in the publication’s annual ranking of Executive MBA programmes.
The programme is ranked #9, up from #19 in 2022.
The programme scored highly for research, ranked #7 in the world – the highest position of all the schools in the top ten – for the quality of faculty research.
Graham Hastie, Associate Dean of Degree Education at London Business School says:
“We are delighted that our overall ranking has jumped ten places. Our rankings for EMBA have improved across the board, particularly in the area of faculty research, which has moved to seventh from #12. Earlier this year, the FT ranked the School second in its ranking of research intensity related to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and we are thrilled that our research prowess has again been recognised.
“Research is the beating heart of London Business School; it is one of the four core pillars around which our current Forever Forward fundraising campaign is based. Through Forever Forward we aim to raise £50m, increasing our faculty chairs from seven to seventeen and funding more ground-breaking, game-changing research.
“We are also thrilled that our alumni have ranked the programme more highly for salary increase, career progress, work experience and ESG, which reflects the strength of the programme in terms of meeting the requirements of employers and helping alumni to achieve their career goals."
