CBS E-MBA among top global schools in The Economist 2018 ranking


CBS Executive MBA joins the best in the Economist EMBA 2018 rankings and gets top points for student quality and personalized participant experience.


Copenhagen Business School has been ranked number 63 for its Executive MBA Programme in the 2018 Economist EMBA Rankings, a prestigious ranking featuring the top EMBA programmes globally. 

The ranking measures programmes based on two broad categories: participants’ personal development and educational experience, as well as the career development of the cohort members.

There are several sub categories to the ranking where the CBS EMBA performs particularly well.

The programme scores maximum points when it comes to faculty's academic degrees, based on the share of EMBA faculty holding a PhD; the personalized learning experience, based on the faculty-student ratio, also places the CBS EMBA high on the list, at #16.

Another strong suit is the level of seniority of the EMBA participants; the global rank for work experience is five and when it comes to managerial experience, the CBS EMBA is placed in the top 30.

CBS Dean of Education, Gregor Halff sees this as testimony to the quality of the CBS EMBA and its students:

“One of the great benefits of the CBS-EMBA is the life-long network that our participants can build and our admissions team goes to great lengths to assemble a class with individuals at the right level of professional experience, who can challenge, push and contribute to the cohort in a positive manner. It is encouraging to see our team’s efforts in this area being recognized, and to see that we are actually one of the leaders when it comes to our participant’s level of work experience.”

It is also notable that CBS is the only Scandinavian EMBA that appears on the ranking, putting the school at the top in the region.
