Rankings success and recognition for our Executive Education programmes

In the past week, our Executive Education programmes have enjoyed both success in the Financial Times rankings and recognition with an EFMD Excellence in Practice Award.

For the second consecutive year, our Executive Education offering secured fourth place in the combined Financial Times Executive Education ranking. The FT assesses each school rigorously using more than 30 different metrics, based primarily on data collected by the FT from each school’s custom and open enrolment clients.

The different parts of the ranking flagged a number of areas of strength - our Custom programmes climbed two places overall and we were ranked number one for interaction between clients and the School and for their international reach. Other areas of strength included flexibility of programme design, strength of faculty teaching, quality of methods and materials and relevance to the workplace.

Professor Julian Birkinshaw, Deputy Dean of Executive Education, said:

“We are delighted to achieve this top four position once again, incorporating results for both Custom and Open enrolment programmes. This ranking confirms LBS as a top performer within an elite group of world class business schools. But we won’t stop here,  We are continuing to invest in innovative and tailored programmes, including much greater use of digital learning technologies, to enable individuals and organisations to drive sustainable change.”

Last week we also received the excellent news that our Expanding Horizons custom programme with A.T. Kearney has won silver in the EFMD Excellence in Practice awards. The awards recognise exceptionally effective and impactful learning partnerships and our award is in the Executive Development category.
