The ESSEC & Mannheim Executive MBA program has taken 7th place in the world in the inaugural QS Global Joint EMBA Rankings - a ranking of the top 20 Executive MBA partner programs worldwide, published for the first time this week by TopMBA.
The new QS ranking combines input from thought leaders in business and management, perceptions of global employers and program-specific indicators. The most weighted categories are:
- Reputation for employability, based on a global survey of employers who support or recruit EMBA candidates from 500 different business schools
- Academic index, based on the reputation of the school to produce thought leadership research based on a survey of academics in business and management
- The salary increase and career progress of the Executive MBA participants
“The ESSEC & Mannheim Executive MBA program provides an exceptional leadership and networking experience in an environment of academic excellence for tomorrow’s top business leaders. This recognition reflects the quality of our program as perceived by our peer institutions and the career evolution of our participants,” said Natalie Kettner, Director of Executive Programs and Felix Papier and Cedomir Nestorovic, Academic Directors of the program
With the inception of the ESSEC & Mannheim EMBA program in 2004, two of Europe’s leading business schools – ESSEC Business School and Mannheim Business School – joined forces to create a program that is European in tradition but international in outlook. Since then, the partner schools have widened the program’s international scope by integrating an Asia-Pacific track in 2014, delivered from ESSEC’s Singapore campus.
Today, program alumni total more than 1,500 people around the globe, successfully leading top international companies.
The program boasts of a leadership development and career advancement track, several international residencies, flexible elective courses, and an executive-friendly format designed to minimize out of office time. Group work and a strategic project spanning the entire program allow for the direct application of skills sets to a real business strategy problem.
The ESSEC & Mannheim EMBA’s next intake will be in October 2017.
