EDHEC Business School jumped an impressive four places to earn a coveted spot among Europe’s Top 10 business schools, according to the Financial Times 2021 European Business Schools Ranking published today.
This year’s FT European Business Schools Ranking [i] spotlights EDHEC’s dynamic progression in the region’s competitive business school cohort. EDHEC ranked 10th (along with IMD Business School) in the 2021 edition and joins an elite group of business education leaders, including the London Business School, HEC Paris, University of St. Gallen, and Bocconi University.
The FT European Business School Ranking is a culmination of EDHEC’s accomplishments in FT rankings that focused on Masters in Management programmes, MBA programmes, EMBA programmes, and Executive Education programmes (Open and Custom). Earlier this year, the FT ranked EDHEC’s Grande Ecole #9 (up from #16 in 2020) among the World’s Top 10 Masters in Management programmes. In addition, EDHEC’s Global MBA entered Europe’s Top 20 after gaining 10 places in two years’ time.
These rankings validate EDHEC’s commitment to providing an education that gives students the expertise, ambition and intellectual dexterity to tackle the world’s biggest challenges, including climate change, social diversity and equality. EDHEC’s Impact Future Generations strategic plan is an exciting roadmap for the future of higher education, an ambitious vision of learning innovation, programme hybridisation, student experience and international opportunity.
Financial Times editors based their ranking in part on feedback from EDHEC students and alumni, who testified to the depth of the school’s international experience, the strength of its many academic partnerships, and the transformative qualities of its cutting-edge pedagogy and digital technology. These qualities guarantee the success of our students and alumni and ensure that they will have a positive impact in their careers and communities.
“In 2021, EDHEC earned a prized position among the world’s best business schools,” said Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School. “EDHEC’s entry into the FT’s Top 10 European Business Schools is the result of a long-term strategy that focuses on the impact of our students and alumni, as well as the creation of a sustainable future for our planet. As a leading higher education institution, we are dedicated to developing global leaders who will transform the world and make it a better place for future generations.”
