The TRIUM Global Executive MBA Program, in which LSE is a partner, has been ranked second in the world by the Financial Times annual ranking of Executive MBA programs.
Each year, the Financial Times survey evaluates Executive MBA programs offered by business schools from all over the world. The study assesses the career progress of alumni three years after program completion (the Class of 2008), the academic excellence of the faculty, as well as the program's international scope. One hundred programmes are ranked in this year's table.
TRIUM, an alliance between LSE, New York University Stern School of Business and HEC School of Management, Paris, has risen from third place in last year's rankings to second in the world.
For the fourth year running TRIUM is ranked first in the world for "Aims Achieved", a criteria that measures the extent to which alumni fulfilled their most important goals or reasons for pursuing an EMBA and first in "Work Experience", which measures the previous experience of EMBA participants by examining seniority of positions held, number of years in each position, size of company, and any international work experience prior to starting the EMBA. TRIUM ranks second in "Salaries Today," another measure of career progress, and second for "International Course Experience".
Judith Rees, Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science, said: "TRIUM is an international success because its participants learn to think internationally and to combine rigorous academic standards with the drive and passion of their business lives as well as to address the economic, political and social contexts within which all business must operate. These are strengths that continue to be widely recognised and appreciated."
"Our TRIUM alliance equips senior executives to create value for their organizations in a world linked by economic, social and political forces," said Dean Peter Henry of NYU Stern School of Business.
"Year after year, the TRIUM program builds a global network of successful and responsible business leaders. The uniqueness of the program design and the exceptional quality of the students and faculty demonstrate the validity of such innovative academic cooperation between three leading business schools" said Dean Bernard Ramanantsoa of HEC Paris.
