EDHEC among top 15 European Business Schools – FT rankings 2017

EDHEC Business School has consolidated its standing among the top 15 business schools in Europe, according to the Financial Times rankings published today. In a highly competitive international environment, the School once again confirmed its leadership by ranking 14th in 2017, thereby maintaining the position captured in the previous year.  

This ranking once again places EDHEC among the top 3 French business schools with HEC and ESCP Europe.

The Financial Times European Business School rankings notably take into account the 2017 Masters in Management, MBA, EMBA and Executive Education rankings.

This result testifies to the School’s successful impact on the careers of its graduates; their insertion into the job market is one of the major criteria assessed by the Financial Times, particularly via the growth in their salaries on leaving the School.

It also underlines the excellence of EDHEC’s portfolio of programmes, which evolves constantly in order to factor in business needs and student aspirations.

This year, for example, EDHEC has launched the Global Economic Transformation & Technology (GETT) programme, a new innovative programme on three continents offered in partnership with prestigious institutions, along with a new MSc in Data Analytics & Digital Business and a new Digital Innovation Track  within the Global MBA.

For Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School,The Financial Times ranking cements our position among the top 3 business schools in France, while also confirming our leadership in Europe. This international recognition provides EDHEC with the ideal platform to continue with our international strategy combining academic excellence and unique research, and geared to training agile and outward-looking future leaders ready to invent new models”.
