In the recently published QS Global EMBA Ranking for 2018, the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program ranked eighth in the Global Joint EMBA category. This makes it the best German joint MBA program. A total of 24 joint executive MBA programs took part in the selection, which was based on a variety of quality criteria.
The joint program of WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and the Kellogg School of Management was ranked particularly high in the area of “Employer Reputation.” It took sixth place here. The EMBA at WHU also ranked eighth in the world in the “Academic Reputation” category. “We are delighted with these outstanding results. They demonstrate that we at WHU offer excellent academic instruction, and that, at the same time, the high level of practical relevance enhances the appeal of our graduates in the international job market,” Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU, was pleased to report.
The high level of internationality of the Kellogg-WHU EMBA Program is also reflected in another very high ranking, this time in the “Diversity” category. Participants in the Kellogg-WHU EMBA represent 19 different nationalities, compared to an average of just 13.5 nationalities across the programs participating in the ranking. The partnership between the American Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and WHU in Germany now dates back more than 20 years. A total of seven universities in America, Europe and Asia are members of the Kellogg Global Network.
The QS Global EMBA Ranking assesses the 24 programs examined in terms of the aspects of “Employer Reputation,” “Academic Reputation,” “Career Outcomes,” “Executive Profile” and “Diversity,” all of which factor into the overall ranking. The ranking was published for the first time in 2017.
