CUHK EMBA Ranks 15th in Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking 2020

The Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking 2020 released today places CUHK’s EMBA Programme at 15th, up by 9 places from the previous ranking. This global ranking features the world’s top 100 programmes.

CUHK EMBA has risen by 16 spots to 4th globally in the “career progress” category of the ranking. This is a measure that tracks changes in our alumni’s seniority and the size of company they now work in, versus before their EMBA. Compared to results last year, CUHK EMBA also showed impressive progress in areas such as research publications and the proportion of core courses dedicated to corporate social responsibility, ethics, social and environmental issues.

Prof. Lin Zhou, Dean of CUHK Business School, said: “This is a fantastic achievement. I would like to thank our faculty, staff, students and alumni for their tremendous support to CUHK EMBA, particularly those who have dedicated their services to the programme over the years. The programme has inspired thousands of business leaders who have been instrumental to Hong Kong’s and the national economic development. This is the 27th year of our programme, and we will continue to keep pace with the dynamic marketplace through an optimal blend of Chinese wisdom and western knowhow.”

“We are very pleased to see the positive ranking results and uptick in many key areas of our ranking. The big jump in our career progress rank is testament to our ability of nurturing our students to become top-notch management talent in the ever-changing world and create great value to the business community and society post-EMBA,” said Prof. Howard Lam, Director of EMBA Programme and Associate Professor of Practice in Marketing.

CUHK EMBA nurtures top-notch management talent for tomorrow’s challenges in Hong Kong, the mainland, and beyond. The programme is structured around the “six pillars” (Theories, Practices, Internal Network, External Network, Strategic Perspectives and Social Contribution) that aims to enhance the well-being of the business community and society. Relevance is emphasised in the context of Hong Kong’s strategic location within China and the Asia-Pacific region.
