Financial Times EMBA Ranking 2017

Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Again Rated No. 1 in Germany and No. 23 Globally

In its “Financial Times EMBA Ranking,” the Financial Times has once again published its ranking of the best executive MBA programs in the world. The joint program of the Kellogg School of Management and WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management was ranked 23rd worldwide, and was rated the best EMBA program in the German market for the ninth year in a row.

In addition to the statistical data about the university, the ranking was based chiefly on assessments provided by graduates of the program. In “Aims Achieved” category, which captures graduates’ satisfaction, the program was ranked 6th in the world. Under the aspect of “Career Development after Completion of the Program,” the program was ranked 3rd worldwide. Another indicator of the quality of the program is the trend in salaries, which the ranking also considered. On average, graduates of the Kellogg-WHU EMBA Program earned 211,075 Dollars a year three years after graduating. This represents an average increase of 58 percent achieved through completion of the degree. Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU, was pleased to note: “Once again, as the current ranking shows us, working with our international network, we offer a program that is superbly tailored to the needs of international executives.”

The top ranking in the world went to another EMBA partner of the Kellogg School of Management: once again, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where Kellogg-WHU students also complete a module, was able to stake a position among the best. The global partner concept of the Kellogg School of Management provides joint EMBA programs with leading business schools for managers in different regions of the world. WHU is the European partner in the network.
