CEIBS Global EMBA Up to #13 in FT Rankings

Shanghai, China. October 17, 2016 – The China Europe International Business School’s Global EMBA programme has moved up 3 places to #13 in the Financial Times 2016 ranking of global EMBA programmes. The upward move reflects the CEIBS programme’s value for money, seen in its effectiveness in meeting participant’s needs and the impressive salaries commanded by graduates.

According to the FT’s analysis of business schools across the globe, within three years after graduation CEIBS Global EMBA graduates are the 5th highest paid in the world, showing the return on investment the programme provides to its participants, who are senior business leaders at the top of their game. More than three quarters said they successfully achieved their goals for doing the programme – on par with many of the other schools that made the FT’s Top 10 – and CEIBS is ranked #12 when it comes to programme participants’ career progress after graduating.

The most international stand-alone programme offered in mainland China, according to this year’s rankings, the CEIBS Global EMBA is also the only stand-alone programme in Asia to be consistently ranked among the FT’s Top 20 for the last 7 years.

“We are committed to providing the best EMBA experience to our participants, whether they are doing courses on our main campus in Shanghai, from our European base, or during other overseas modules. The Global EMBA programme is a vital part of our ability to provide China Depth, Global Breadth; so we welcome this feedback from the well-respected and rigorous FT rankings,” said CEIBS Vice President & Dean Professor Ding Yuan in reacting to the results. 

Diversity among participants has long been one of the strong points of the CEIBS Global EMBA and in this year’s FT rankings there was a 13-point increase in its ranking for international students. There was also a 33-point increase in the category of salary increase commanded by graduates.

“The world of business is constantly evolving; so are our participants, and so are we,” said Associate Dean & Director of CEIBS Global EMBA Professor Nikos Tsikriktsis. “We are pleased with the three-point move up in the FT 2016 rankings. This will push us to work even harder to meet the needs of executives who look to us to provide the theoretical and practical knowledge they need to excel in global business today, and in the years ahead.”

In addition to the well-established Shanghai cohort, the CEIBS Global EMBA programme began offering a second cohort this year out of the school’s Zurich Campus, The Lorange Institute of Business. The programme is available to students from CEIBS Africa, who can study alongside their peers from Europe and China. It provides the same rigorous content as the Shanghai cohort which has made the FT rankings since 2001.
