Cranfield School of Management’s Executive MBA (EMBA) has risen up the tables in the latest Financial Times EMBA rankings, including being the top UK Executive MBA Programme for its carbon footprint. Cranfield’s EMBA rose 21 places globally, and is now 76th in the world, and a UK top ten Programme.

The Cranfield EMBA was positioned fourth in the UK and 25th worldwide for work experience, a measure of the pre-EMBA experience of alumni, which reflects the cohort seniority and experience in the classroom. The EMBA also further improved its rankings for salary increase, career progress and female student percentage.

Executive MBA Course Director, Dr Ioannis Koliousis, states: “The Cranfield Executive MBA remains the only Financial Times-ranked EMBA based solely in the UK that can also be accessed via an Apprenticeship route. This is incredibly important as it helps underrepresented groups access high quality business school education and significantly supports subsequent opportunities for social mobility.”

The ranking reflects the quality of Cranfield’s expert academic staff who have shaped an innovative teaching programme closely linked to industry needs and business developments.

Those studying the EMBA with Cranfield benefit from world-leading academic insight, along with the course’s real-world commercial application.

Cranfield School of Management, in partnership with Grant Thornton, was the first business school in the UK to offer the Executive MBA via the Apprenticeship Levy. We are proud of Cranfield’s apprenticeship provision being highly commended by Ofsted.
