The Financial Times (FT) today published its global Executive MBA Ranking 2023. Frankfurt School has again risen significantly compared to the previous year and is ranked 53rd worldwide (62nd in the previous year, 83rd in 2021). Frankfurt School has improved in several categories, including salary, career and ESG.
In two important categories – the “Career progress rank” (19th place) and the “ESG rank” (20th place) – Frankfurt School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) achieved a ranking in the top 20 worldwide. The decisive factor for the very good rating in the area of ESG is mainly due to the significantly increased number of ESG-relevant teaching hours in the core curriculum.
Germany-wide, Frankfurt School’s EMBA again ranked fourth place. In its annual ranking, the FT lists the best 100 executive MBA programmes worldwide. For its assessment, the ranking considers several career, experience, diversity and ESG criteria.
Dr Barbara Drexler, Programme Director Executive MBA at Frankfurt School: “We are very proud that we could again improve significantly in the Financial Times EMBA ranking. It clearly demonstrates that we are continuously optimising the curriculum and the overall study experience and adapting it to the changing demands of the corporate world – especially in the field of ESG. Our Frankfurt School EMBA enables students to future-proof themselves in times of increasing complexity as well as uncertainty by strengthening both their strategic and leadership skills. The fact that we see increasing numbers of international students adds to the well-rounded study experience for all EMBA programme participants.”
The Executive MBA at Frankfurt School is aimed at senior professionals and managers with proven leadership experience who want to deepen their management skills, further develop their leadership abilities and expand their network across industries and countries.
