TRIUM ranks second worldwide in the Financial Times

Page Contents >

For its second participation in the annual Financial Times' Executive MBA ranking, the TRIUM Global Executive MBA Programme ranked second in the world (90 programs are listed).

Each year, the Financial Times survey evaluates Executive MBA programmes offered by business schools from all over the world. The study assesses the career progress of alumni three years after programme completion, the academic excellence of the faculty and the program's international scope. TRIUM is also ranked fourth in the world for 'most experienced intake' and for 'salaries' and fifth in the world for 'overseas attendants'.

Launched in September 2001, TRIUM is the first executive MBA programme to provide an authentically global educational curriculum and experience, made possible through a unique alliance among three world-renowned universities: New York University Stern School of Business (NYU Stern), the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and HEC Paris.

Dean Bernard Ramanantsoa, HEC Paris, said: 'This second position confirms the uniqueness of the TRIUM programme design and the exceptional quality of the participants. This result is also the epitome of a successful innovative academic cooperation among three schools.

Dean Thomas F Cooley of NYU Stern School of Business, said: 'TRIUM participants gain a unique grasp of the ways, social, political and economic policy impact every aspect of how modern companies and organizations operate across the globe.'

Executive MBAs - Bountiful market for prospective students (22 Oct 07)
The FT 2007 league tables for EMBAs are published today. The TRIUM Global Executive MBA Programme, offered by LSA jointly with NYU Stern School of Business and HEC School of Management, Paris, came second, following Kellogg/Hong Kong USA Business School.

Teamwork makes a world of difference (22 Oct 07)
The schools have different approaches to running these global EMBA programmes. Both Chicago and Pittsburgh run their own integrated programmes at three sites - although Katz is considering a fourth location in Asia. The second approach is to partner with other institutions, and two notable examples here are: the Trium Global EMBA, bringing together New York University Stern School of Business, LSE and HEC School of Management, Paris.

Collaborative programmes come to the fore (22 Oct 07)
A notable feature of this year's top 20 is the proliferation of collaborative programmes. This year, seven of the 20 best EMBAs are joint initiatives, up from five last year and three two years ago. Some of these programmes are based in one centre only, such as the top-ranked Kellogg School of Business and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology tie-up in Hong Kong. Others such as the Trium Global Executive MBA, rotate participants between all the institutions involved: HEC School of Management in Paris, The London School of Economics and Political Science and New York University's Stern School of Business.

Interaction adds to learning experience (22 Oct 07)
The Trium programme particularly attracted him because of the political and economic framework provided by the London School of Economics modules - a rare element in EMBA programmes.
