EMBA-Global Asia programme awarded second in its first ever ranking by Financial Times

Immediate Release

(October 16, 2017 – Hong Kong)  The HKU Business School’s influential partnership with London Business School and Columbia Business School has achieved second place in its first ever entry in the annual Financial Times Executive MBA ranking.

Financial Times mentioned in its report that “It is the first time in the history of FT business education rankings that a programme has been placed so high on its first participation.”

The league table, now in its 17th year, ranks the top 100 Executive MBA programmes in the world. The ranking measures a combination of 16 metrics covering salary, career progression, diversity and academic quality.

HKU Business School’s EMBA-Global Asia scored strongly for salary gain, with an average salary received by graduates of just under $US320,000. The programme’s appeal was also boosted by graduates’ career progression (gaining 14th place), and international course experience (7th place, with 80% of participating students drawn from the international community).

The programme was also ranked fourth for ‘aims achieved’ (83%); a measure of the extent to which graduates fulfilled their stated goals for doing an Executive MBA.

“We are delighted that the EMBA-Global Asia has been recognised as one of the top programmes in the world,” said HKU Dean of Business and Economics Professor Hongbin Cai. “Throughout the years, EMBA-Global Asia programme never stops to synergise the strengths of the three top-notch international institutions in Hong Kong, London, and New York.  Instilling a global view with Asia perspectives in our students, and with an exceptionally strong alumni network, they are all fully prepared to excel in the world’s fastest growing region and emerging markets.  While we are very proud of all the accomplishments, I am confident the EMBA-Global Asia programme as well as other programmes of the Faculty of Business and Economics will continue to grow strong in the years to come.”

The FT rankings are based on an alumni survey with various measures, including salary on graduation, career progression, how the programme lived up to expectations and percentage salary increase three years after graduation besides a school survey to gather statistical data.  Launched in 2009, the EMBA-Global Asia programme is offered under the tripartite partnership of HKU Business School, London Business School and Columbia Business School.
