On April 16, 2019, the QS Global Executive MBA Rankings were published in which the ESSEC & Mannheim Executive MBA was ranked the #10 program among joint programs.
In its third year, the QS Global EMBA Rankings included 156 global Executive MBA programs. The joint programs were analyzed separately as they tend to be distinct from traditional executive MBA programs in regards to time commitment and cost.
Among the 22 joint EMBA programs included in this year’s rankings, the ESSEC & Mannheim Executive MBA earned a rank of 10th overall. The program performed particularly well in regards to:
- Career outcomes: which measures salary increase pre to post program
- Academic reputation: the aggregate opinion of 100,000 academics in more than 60 countries
- Diversity: which looks at the percentage of female and international students
According to Thomas Jeanjean, the Dean of Post-Experience Programs at ESSEC, “The ESSEC & Mannheim Executive MBA is one of the school’s core programs and we are pleased to see that it continues to do well in the rankings. Such results represent a major asset for the reach and attractiveness of our school.”
The program at a glance
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 Asia-Pacific campus in Singapore. Today, program alumni total more than 1,500 people around the globe, successfully leading top international companies.
