TRIUM ranked second in the world by the Financial Times

TRIUM Global EMBA logoThe TRIUM Executive MBA programme has climbed to second in the world according to today's Financial Times EMBA rankings.

TRIUM also places first in the world for the aims achieved by its alumni – the second year it has topped this category – and is second world-wide for the salaries earned by its alumni.

This year's Financial Times EMBA league table ranks 95 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 also places second for international course experience and third for international students. 

Launched in 2001, the TRIUM Executive MBA programme is an alliance between the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), NYU Stern School of Business and HEC School of Management. It is designed to meet the business-learning needs of today's senior level executives and delivers a tailor-made international curriculum that combines rigorous global business curriculum with a unique socioeconomic and socio-political context.

Professor Saul Estrin, vice dean of TRIUM and head of the Department of Management at LSE, said: 'The fact that we have come top of the ranking yet again for aims achieved is the most pleasing aspect of all - even more than the fact that we have now climbed to number two in the world.

'Our alumni obviously feel that we are delivering on what is promised and that, in TRIUM, senior executives receive an education and experience which meets or indeed exceeds their expectations.'

The programme requires students to participate in six intensive, intellectually rigorous educational modules held in five key business centres around the world over the course of 16 months. Modules are hosted at the partner schools, as well as in two additional international locations that rotate annually based on their relevance to global business issues. This schedule best accommodates the demanding schedules of high-level executives, resulting in only 10 weeks out-of-office time during the programme. Between modules, students are required to utilise the programme's distance-learning platform for the completion of individual and group assignments, enabling students to work from their home, office or during business travel.
