October 18, 2021. Shanghai – CEIBS’ status as a world-class business school was underlined today as its Global EMBA programme placed second in the Financial Times’ 2021 EMBA ranking. This is the second consecutive year CEIBS has been ranked #2 and the fourth consecutive year it has appeared in the top five. The latest release also makes CEIBS’ Global EMBA the top-ranked single-school programme in Asia. The school’s full-time MBA programme is currently ranked #7 in the world and #1 in Asia by the business media outlet.
The FT’s ranking is widely considered to be the most comprehensive and influential of its kind in the world, and is based on surveys of schools and their alumni looking at factors such as career progress, faculty and diversity, research and corporate social responsibility (CSR).
