The global Financial Times Executive Education 2023 ranking placed open executive education at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School first in the UK.
The programme ranked fifth in the world for its quality of participant experience, with course design and the quality of faculty scoring especially high. The results are the first for the School since 2020, following the impacts of Covid-19, and saw us retain our UK top spot for open programmes.
The annual ranking is a worldwide league table of executive education programmes across 75 schools, tailored to the needs of companies and organisations. It is, in part, based on feedback from a school’s participants and clients.
Soumitra Dutta, Peter Moores Dean at Oxford Saïd, said: ‘Our executive education equips institutions and business leaders with skills and knowledge they need to be the best. So to know our open programme is the best at doing that in the UK, and in the world’s top five, is a real testament to the hard work, skill and care of our colleagues, and our incredible participants. It’s a result we are all rightly proud of.’
The School’s overall executive education, combining both custom and open programmes, was ranked second in the UK and 14th across the world.
