Executive Education: SKEMA continues its progression in the Financial Times 2020 annual global ranking

Published on 11 May 2020

SKEMA ranked 43rd worldwide and seventh in France by Financial Times for “executive customised programmes”. Entering the top 50 for the first time this year, SKEMA Business School has been ranked 43rd out of 85 international academic institutions and has climbed 18 places compared to the 2019 edition; this progression places SKEMA on the second step of the podium, between Imperial College (1) and Chicago Booth School of Business (3).

​Our school had climbed 18 places in 2019 as well. By renewing the performance this year, it has jumped 36 places in merely two years. This has allowed it to be placed in the first position in terms of progression, ahead of Imperial College (+31) and CEIBS (+30).

In France, SKEMA has been placed 7th among the 11 best French Grandes Ecoles represented.

It stood out particularly in the ‘growth’ category and ranked 3rd in the world; the ‘diversity of its teaching staff’ ranked 6th, ‘international clients’ ranked 12th, and ‘ school partners’ ranked 14th.

Along with the other two annual FT rankings in finance (master’s in finance) and management (master’s in management), which are based on the satisfaction of graduates, this ranking gives a prominent place to executives’ feedback. This is further proof of SKEMA's ability to meet the expectations and needs of companies.

This progression also echoes the school's development ambitions in "Executive Education", announced in January 2020 during the presentation of "SKY25", SKEMA’s 2020-2025 strategic plan.

I am delighted with the performance of French schools in this ranking and the significant progress made by SKEMA. It is a concrete recognition of our ability to support the transformation of businesses and the development of their managerial teams’ skills, wherever their playgrounds are based" said Alice Guilhon, the dean of SKEMA and president of the French chapter of business schools.
