Kellogg delivers the best EMBA programmes

The clear winners in the Financial Times latest ranking of Executive MBA programmes are those that are taught by more than one school in more than one location. And preferably on more than one continent, too

The placements are: Kellogg/Hong Kong UST on first rank, Tsinghua University/Insead on second, Columbia/London Business School on third, closely followed by Trium, taught by HEC Paris, London School of Economics and New York University's Stern School.

Earlier this year, the British Economist also named Kellogg as number one amongst the world's EMBA providers with four different programmes in the top ten. It names the joint programme with Schulich School of Business at York University, just across the border in Ontario, Canada, the  programmes run with Hong Kong UST and with WHU in Germany. Kellogg’s standalone EMBA is number eight.

International flair seems to be the big winner with students.

Even top programmes based in one location are increasingly adding overseas modules to give a global experience,” writes the Financial Times and quotes George Allayannis from Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia: “You cannot have relevance unless you can speak to the world. You cannot speak to the world unless you understand it.” Others, though, warn against generalising across programmes. Sloan's EMBA for example was founded in 2010 for US participants, and now half the students are from greater New England and half from the rest of the US.

The Financial Times also wonders about the costs, fees of 150,000 dollars are relatively commonplace. “This could call into question the long-term sustainability of the EMBA as MOOCS – massive open online courses – become increasingly prevalent.”

The Economist notes another downside: while EMBA students are recruited from around the world, there is one criterion on which all schools fare badly and this is the percentage of female students in their classes. None of the schools on the list enrols more women than men.
