The Executive MBA program at the Copenhagen Business School has been ranked among the top E-MBA programs in the world, according to the Economist’s second biennial ranking.
The executive programs were evaluated according to personal development/educational experience and career development.
Only Scandi school on list
“This is a real kudos to our programme and yet another acknowledgment of our unwavering commitment to quality,” stated Jesper Rangvid, the CBS associate dean for the E-MBA program.
”The competition from international business schools is extremely high. To be recognised as the only Scandinavian school on the list and among the top programs in the world, alongside well-known global business schools such as Yale and Columbia, is an achievement we are very proud of.”
High PhD percentage
The CBS’s Executive MBA program scored best of all in a category evaluating the quality of the faculty in terms of the number who hold PhDs, for which it ranked first.
The program also did particularly well in the student work experience sub-category, taking third position globally.
Overall, the CBS Executive MBA came 60th.
17 years of work experience
In February this year, some 34 students representing eight nationalities and averaging 17 years of work experience were admitted to the E-MBA program at CBS. Thirty percent of them were women.
“For the CBS Executive MBA, we have seen a surge in interest over the past year. The February intake has grown by 35 percent over the past year,” Lone Ryevad Boysen, CBS Executive MBA admissions manager, told the Weekly Post.
“We are receiving a lot of interest in our Executive MBA, but it is a major commitment to enrol in executive education as demanding as this, and participants can be in dialogue with us for around two years before they actually start the program.”
CBS ranks among top 10
Interested applicants must, among other things, hold a university or business school degree and have a minimum three years of managerial experience.
In April, CBS ranked among the top 10 universities for business and management on a list made by QS Top Universities.
