BMI partner schools deliver 3 of the world’s top 10 EMBA programmes

New Financial Times ratings this week show 3 of the world’s 10 best Executive MBA programmes are delivered by business schools in BMI’s international network. That includes two by BMI founding partner HEC Paris and one by BMI’s China module partner Shanghai Jiao Tong University Antai College.
 
BMI Director General Jaunius Pusvaškis said international assessments like those by the FT are important for confirming not just the academic quality of business schools, but also their real practical results in terms of producing global business leaders: “It says a lot that the major school most actively involved in designing BMI’s EMBA is top-3 in the world for career progress, and that our top-rated academic partners achieve average salary growth for graduates of 68% to 118%.”
 
“HEC Paris has featured continuously in the top five places in this ranking since 2006 as one-third of the Trium joint programme with London School of Economics and NYU Stern School of Business. It now enters the ranking with its solo programme in joint sixth place,” the Financial Times said in its report on the 2018 global executive MBA ranking. It said the famous French school ranks third for alumni career progress, is in the top 10 globally both for salary and for international exposure.
 
Others in the new FT ranking of the 100 strongest programmes globally include BMI module partners WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) in Austria and SDA Bocconi of Italy.
 
In its report, the FT noted that, three years after graduation, the salaries of managers who complete EMBA programmes tend to be 51% higher than the earnings of graduates of standard MBA programmes and more than twice as high as those who studied for a Masters in Management.
