Michigan Ross Executive Education Breaks Into Top 5 in Latest Ranking From Financial Times


The Ross School of Business continues to improve its executive education ranking, according to a new report released by the Financial Times, breaking into the short list of top 5 global providers for executive education programs.

Michigan Ross moved up to No. 5 from No. 8 in 2018 for its executive education programs, joining Stanford as the only U.S. schools in the top 5. The ranking is a combination of the school’s performance in open enrollment and customized programs.

For its open enrollment programs, Ross also made it into the top 5 schools, earning the No. 4 spot, up two places from the previous year. The school also maintained its No. 11 rank for customized programs, which are learning experiences the school co-creates with corporate partners around the world.

To compile the rankings, the Financial Times uses a combination of a variety of factors to determine their list of the world’s best executive education providers, including ratings from corporate clients on program design, teaching methods, faculty, post-program follow-up, aims achieved, value of the program, and an evaluation of new skills learned by course participants.

The jump in rankings by Michigan Ross follows the announcement of the Executive Education team winning the 2019 EFMD Excellence in Practice Silver Award in talent development for its ongoing custom corporate learning program with Oracle.

In 2018, Ross held 316 Executive Education programs in more than 70 countries, facilitating high-impact learning experiences for more than 5,000 managers and executives for companies, including M&T Bank Corp., Tata Group, and Amazon.
