Lancaster University Management School’s Executive MBA programme has been ranked 59th in the world and 5th in the UK according to the latest Which MBA? 2020 rankings.
This two-year programme focuses on capability, capacity and knowledge for career progression and is designed in a flexible, part-time format to enable participants to combine their studies with their professional commitments.
This is the first time Lancaster’s Executive MBA programme has been recognised in these rankings, which take place every two years. The rankings incorporate a variety of measures, including surveys of current students and three years of alumni cohorts, which provides a strong demonstration of the quality of our programme and educational experience, as well as the fantastic achievements of our alumni.
The Executive MBA programme has also been ranked 58th in the world in the QS Executive MBA rankings 2020, and performed strongly in a number of key areas including career outcomes, diversity and employer reputation.
Recent EMBA alumna, Sarah O’Rourke, said of the programme “The EMBA gave me a broad toolkit of knowledge and increased my skills-base in a way that complemented my existing financial experience. It also took me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to challenge the internal beliefs I held about what I’m capable of and can achieve. The programme gave me access to a wonderful group of people, who are still supporting each other’s careers.”
Executive MBA Director, Emma Watton, said “We are delighted to be recognised for the first time in the Which MBA? world rankings. This position, along with our performance in the QS rankings, is testimony to all of our alumni and current students who, together with our dedicated staff, help to make the programme so successful and relevant to leaders in the 21st century.”
