This year, a total of 161 EMBA programmes in the world were ranked, 20 of which are joint EMBA programmes, and they were surveyed between December 2019 and February 2020. CUHK EMBA got an overall score of 79.6 and ranks no. 1 and no. 2 among the world’s independent EMBA programmes in Executive Profile and Diversity respectively.
The ranking combine 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% and 25% of the ranking weight, respectively. Executive Profile, which includes average years’ work experience, managerial experience, and c-suite experience make up 15% of the ranking weight. Diversity of class makes up 10% of the ranking weight, which includes both the representation levels of women and number of nationalities among a programme’s students.
