CEIBS ranks #2 in FT's EMBA Ranking for the 4th straight year
October 16, 2023. Shanghai – For the fourth year in a row, CEIBS has been named #2 in the world in the Financial Times’ global ranking of Executive MBA programmes. This means that the school’s Global EMBA (GEMBA) programme has maintained its position as the top ranked EMBA programme in the world to be taught at a standalone school and the number one EMBA programme on the Chinese mainland.
This year’s ranking comes at a difficult time for both China and the world, with business schools across the globe feeling the effects of an uncertain economic future. In eras like this, reputable and trusted rankings like the FT’s provide executives with guidance in uncertain times, and we are proud that the quality of our GEMBA programme can act as a beacon of stability and excellence.
CEIBS President (European)
This year, the Financial Times made subtle yet significant changes to their ranking metrics, placing increasing importance on factors such as school diversity, ESG, and carbon footprint. The fact that our position has held firm despite these changes demonstrates our commitment to facing these defining issues, while remaining resolutely focused on offering a peerless education centered on global expertise and on-the-ground China experience.

Our FT research rank jumped eight places to reach 33rd, while our ESG and net zero teaching rank moved up 13 places from 60th to 47th, reflecting our ongoing efforts to include important teaching on ESG issues in both our core and elective courses.

In terms of Student Diversity, CEIBS made gains in almost every category, including reaching #1 in the world in female student enrolment. We also leapt 17 places from 23rd to 6th in Career Progress (which measures items such as size of company and rise in seniority for students pre- and post-EMBA).
