Just a month after ranking number one worldwide for their Master in Management programme, ESCP Europe Business School’s European Executive MBA has been positioned first globally for the career progression opportunities offered to its graduates.
Published this year on 25th October, the Financial Times’ annual EMBA rankings singled out ESCP Europe’s programme for its excellence in two major areas: international experience and career progression post-study. Offering business perspectives and networking opportunities from the five major European economies – France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK – the School’s multi-campus learning approach has yet again proven to be a successful one.
“The ESCP Europe learning environment is founded on incorporating a variety of perspectives,” says the School’s Dean, Pascal Morand. “We bring together an intercultural exchange with one goal in mind: to provide excellence in business education. This latest ranking by the Financial Times confirms that business education ‘made in Europe’ is indeed a winning proposition.”
Placing in the top 10 of each of ESCP Europe’s home countries and now holding an overall position of 15th worldwide, this 2010 ranking of the European Executive MBA is a full ten points higher than in the previous year. In the categories representing the School’s differentiation, the scores are placed in the top five worldwide, namely: career progression (1st), international course content (3rd) and international student body (5th).
Marianne Conde Salazar, Director of the European Executive MBA programme, states: “The growing diversity of the business school market is always a welcome advancement. There is also much to be said in favour of multiple rankings; these better illuminate the benefits on offer to students. After all, different rankings, like different schools, suit different tastes and purposes.
“The core objective of our programme is to enhance career progression through the international exposure provided by the unique ESCP Europe experience. This new ranking shows we are succeeding.”
