QS EMBA Ranking 2017

In the recently published QS EMBA ranking for 2017, the Kellogg-WHU EMBA Program ranked sixth in the Global Joint EMBA category. A total of 20 joint executive MBA programs were part of the analysis, which was based on a variety of quality criteria.

The joint degree program, offered by the Kellogg School of Management and WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, had a particularly strong showing in the area of “Recruiter Reputation.” Here it finished fourth in a field of 20 programs. Prof. Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU, was pleased with the outcome: “The fact that our graduates are sought-after in the international jobs market confirms the high quality of our Executive MBA Program, where we attach great importance to internationality and practical relevance,” he said.

The high level of internationality of the Kellogg-WHU EMBA Program is also reflected in another very high QS ranking, this time in the “Diversity” category. The partnership between the American Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and WHU in Germany now dates back 20 years. A total of seven universities in America, Europe and Asia are members of the Kellogg Global Network. Four of these were chosen among the top-ranked programs.

The QA EMBA Ranking assesses the programs examined in terms of the aspects of “Thought Leadership,” “Recruiter Reputation,” “Career Outcome,” “Executive Profile” and “Diversity.” The ranking was published for the first time in 2017.
