The Kellogg School of Management, in partnership with two of its joint executive MBA (EMBA) programs, recently captured three of the top 13 placements in the 2006 Financial Times Executive MBA ranking.
The Asia-based Kellogg-Hong Kong University of Science and Technology EMBA program ranked No. 3. The Chicago-based Kellogg School EMBA reached No. 10. And the Kellogg-WHU Otto Beisheim Graduate School of Management EMBA of Europe earned the No. 13 spot.
The Kellogg School's EMBA program also appeared in the top 10 in the following categories: top schools in the U.S.; top salaries in the U.S.; most experienced intake in the U.S.; and top salaries in finance, consulting and IT/Telecommunications.
The Financial Times rankings are based on the data collected from surveys of business schools and alumni who have been in the workplace for three years since graduation. The main driver of the rankings is the career success of alumni, which takes into account the career progress of alumni from the period before they started their EMBA to the present (usually five years). The two main components of this measurement are salary levels today and the percentage salary increase alumni have earned.
