FT EMBA Ranking: WHU Moves Up Even Further

#1 in Germany and #16 worldwide makes WHU the best provider of executive education in Germany

The Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking not only weights statistical data provided by the business schools but, first and foremost, also evaluations by the graduates of the program. In the FT Executive MBA Ranking 2020, the exceptionally good results in the category “career progress after completion of the program” were of particular importance for the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA as it ranked #5 worldwide there. The alumni seemed to be very content with the program as the categories “aims achieved” and “salary increase after the program” were rated #9 and #14, respectively, due to their feedback. Students can expect an average annual income of 237.177 US$ three years after their graduation. Therefore, participation in the program is worth the fees as the alumni were able to increase their income by an average of 75 percent.

“Having seen the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA program at the top of the list in Germany for such a long time is very encouraging,” says Professor Dr. Juergen Weigand, Academic Director of the program. Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU, is also excited and continues, „Competition is very fierce in this field. I am proud that we are able to provide a program of such high quality in Germany.”

In this year’s ranking, the Kellogg-WHU program shares the 16th position with the joint Executive MBA program of Washington University (USA) and University Fudan (China). In Germany, the joint program of ESSEC Business School and Mannheim Business School follows as #32, ESMT Berlin as #39, Mannheim Business School as #72, and Frankfurt School of Finance as #76. The world’s best Executive MBA program is, according to the Financial Times, the joint program of Kellogg School of Management and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

The Kellogg Global Network offers joint Executive MBA programs with top business schools on other continents. WHU is Kellogg’s partner in Europe.

This year, WHU can look back on a number of successful rankings:
