Cranfield School of Management’s customised programmes are best in the world for international reach, according to the Financial Times’ annual ranking of executive education providers. 

The endorsement was a further accolade for Cranfield’s customised executive development, which retained its overall global top ten position, where it has ranked consistently over the last four years.  

Dr John Glen, Director of the School’s Centre for Customised Executive Development, said: “Being consistently ranked amongst the top ten schools in the world is an outstanding achievement and confirms our position as a world leader in customised executive development. 

“We are particularly pleased to have been acknowledged for our international reach, which sees us delivering bespoke programmes to multi-sector clients around the world.” 

The Centre for Customised Executive Development delivers training and development for clients including Telekom Malaysia, Unilever, Kuehne & Nagel, Air Asia, Royal Dutch Shell, Sabic and L’Oréal. 

The School’s open programmes’ position has also remained strong at 34th in the world. The combined customised and open programme ranking for Cranfield is 19th globally.

Professor Maury Peiperl, Director of the School of Management said: “This positioning provides a strong platform for us to continue to grow and increase our global delivery even further.  I would like to thank the dedication of the team involved in ensuring that we consistently provide relevant and impactful programmes to both custom and open clients.”
