2013 The Economist - Top 25 EMBA Programs

The Economist EMBA Rankings 2013The Economist has released its first EMBA Program ranking for 2013. The ranking is based on three factors: personal development, educational experience and career development. Kellogg School of Management is a clear winner in this ranking with three of its EMBA programs, featuring in the top 10 list. 

According to The Economist, Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA is the best executive MBA program followed by IE Global Executive MBA and UCLA-NUS Executive MBA program.
What is interesting is the dominance of Spain’s leading schools – IE and IESE in the top 5 list. However, US based schools dominate the top 10 list with two Asian schools (NUS Singapore and HKUST, Hong Kong) featuring in the same list. Another European school that has made the entry into the top 10 list is IMD, Switzerland.

Methodology:  The ranking is based on answers from two sets of questionnaires collected between Feb and May 2013. Only schools featured in the Economist Full-time MBA ranking were invited for the EMBA ranking.
