CUHK EMBA Ranks 23rd in Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking 2023

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School’s Executive MBA Programme (EMBA) continues to achieve remarkable international recognition, ranking 23rd in the Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking 2023, one place up from 24th last year. This remarkable feat signifies the programme’s consistent presence among the world’s top 30 EMBA programmes for the sixth consecutive year.

In this year’s ranking, CUHK EMBA maintains its strong foothold as number one in Asia Pacific and ranks fifth globally in the “Career Progress” category, which assesses changes in the level of seniority and the size of company our alumni work in now, versus before their EMBA. It also secures the second spot in Asia Pacific for “Aims Achieved,” which measures the extent to which alumni have fulfilled their goals or reasons for pursuing the EMBA. These notable results are testament to our strengths in delivering an exceptional leadership experience and commitment to propelling our students to the next level in their career.

Prof. Lin Zhou, Dean of CUHK Business School, said, “We take great pride in our EMBA programme for the results it achieved. As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of CUHK Business School this year, our EMBA programme has successfully spanned a journey of 30 years. CUHK Business School remains dedicated to nurturing business leaders with a global perspective, serving the economies of Hong Kong and Asia Pacific. The remarkable accomplishments of our EMBA alumni bear testament to this commitment. In Hong Kong and far beyond, their contributions and impact have gained recognition and respect on the global stage.”

“We pay tribute of this prestigious global recognition to our proud network of alumni, who not only constantly seek to excel in leading their organisations but also actively contribute back to the community. I would also like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our faculty members and staff who are committed to bringing our mission to life, creating a transformative experience to the top-notch leaders to develop their potentials to the fullest. We will continue to innovate our programme to help our students stay relevant, agile and competent for the future and drive meaningful impact in their organisations and society,” said Dr Andrew Yuen, Director of EMBA Programme.

Being the first EMBA programme in Hong Kong, CUHK EMBA integrates Chinese wisdom with Western knowledge to nurture top-notch management talent to meet tomorrow’s challenges in Hong Kong, the mainland and beyond. CUHK EMBA offers a unique leadership education experience, which encapsulates its value proposition “Six Pillars” (Theories, Practices, Internal Network, External Network, Strategic Perspectives & Social Contribution), designed to enhance the wellbeing of the business community and society at large.
