Publishing Date: 25/05/2018 (Last Update: 25/05/2018)
The HKU Faculty of Business and Economics’s influential partnership with London Business School and Columbia Business School is ranked the top joint EMBA programme in the Global EMBA Rankings conducted by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) in April 2018.
As mentioned in the QS report, the EMBA-Global Asia programme, synergizing the strengths of three prestigious business schools, enables students to “benefit from unique insights and gain a truly global perspective”.
This year, QS refined and improved its methodology to better reflect the EMBA landscape for students, with more emphasis on employers' feedback and research expertise. The QS Global EMBA Rankings evaluates a total of 142 programmes on the basis of five key indicators: career outcomes, diversity, employer reputation, executive profile and thought leadership. The Faculty’s EMBA-Global Asia scored strongly across all dimensions and achieved the highest overall score among all joint programmes.
The management from the three business schools, including Professor Hongbin Cai, Dean of Faculty of Business and Economics, HKU; Professor François Ortalo-Magné, Dean of London Business School; and Ms. Kelley Martin Blanco, Assistant Dean, EMBA Programs and Dean of Students, Columbia Business School, together with guests, teachers, students and alumni enjoyed a cocktail reception to commemorate the success.
