Gaining top EMBA Ranking in Asia and the world

Determining the rankings of each EMBA university is done through a process that spans 5 years. Over those 5 years, two surveys are administered to gather information on individuals that hold an EMBA degree. Further data is gathered from the universities as well. All of this information is collated and used to curate and rank universities that have EMBA programmes. Holding a top rank on the list means more than just prestige for the universities. Being a top EMBA ranking university means that the CUHK is able to produce graduates with desirable:
Career Outcomes
Salary uplift opportunities
Promotions as early as the first year of employment
Opportunities in diversity

What it means to be a top EMBA Ranking university

The Chinese University of Hong Kong has established a reputation that no other Asian university can compare with. EMBA Hong Kong degree holders are highly sought after not only in Asia but all over the world. The recently released EMBA Ranking list is an indication of the commitment that the CUHK stands behind in paving the way for EMBA Hong Kong graduates. To be a part of the prestigious top EMBA Ranking universities in Asia and the world means that the CUHK produces graduates that are able to maintain positive relationships and reputations.

Without the recommendation of leaders in business and management, graduates of the CUHK have no chance of making it on the list.

With an education from the CUHK, salaries and raise opportunities for EMBA Hong Kong graduates are on a constant rise, allowing the university to stay at the top of the EMBA Ranking lists of the world and in Asia.

CUHK EMBA got an overall score of 76.6 and a full score in three indicators including Career Outcomes, Diversity and Executive Profile.

The ranking uses a methodology which takes into consideration each business school’s reputation among academics and employers, as well as the demographics of its EMBA cohort, salary uplift post-graduation and more. It combines input from thought leaders in business and management alongside the perceptions of global employers who recruit from the world’s best EMBA programmes, and is further enhanced by programme-specific indicators.

Data is collected from two long-standing QS surveys – the QS Global Employer Survey and the QS Academic Survey. The responses from these surveys span a total of five years, with responses from more recent years having greater weighting. In addition to these surveys, schools were asked to submit data pertaining to their EMBA programmes covering a variety of topics.

The QS Employer Survey and Academic Survey account for 30 percent and 25 percent of the ranking weight, respectively. Executive Profile, which includes average years’ work experience, managerial experience, and c-suite experience make up 15 percent of the ranking weight. Career Outcomes make up 20 percent of the ranking weight, which includes salary uplift within a year of graduation, as well as the percentage of students who were promoted within a year of graduation. The remaining 10 percent of the ranking weight is Diversity of class, which includes both the representation levels of women and number of nationalities among a programme’s students.
