EMBA maintains top 10 position in the FT business education rankings

Oxford Saïd’s Executive MBA (EMBA) has been rated number nine in the world in the prestigious Financial Times (FT) business education rankings for 2016.

The 21-month modular programme moved up 12 places in 2015 from number 21 in 2014. It is ranked number one in the UK for an EMBA delivered by a single UK business school, and number four in the world for a programme run by a single school.

‘In the last few years the EMBA has evolved to address the biggest challenges executives face in their work, particularly the themes of global complexity, entrepreneurial thinking and strategic leadership,’ said Kathy Harvey, Director of the EMBA. ‘We were therefore delighted that our programme ranked joint first in terms of “aims achieved.”’

This was echoed in a recent survey of the School’s EMBA alumni who said that they had developed vital self-awareness and new ways of thinking to tackle the specific business challenges that they face. ‘The Oxford EMBA changed my perception about the business world, global economy, and gave me the confidence of pursuing opportunities that previously seemed impossible,’ one survey respondent said.
