THIS is The Economist ’s second bi-annual ranking of executive MBA programmes. Joint degrees that are separate from schools’ standalone EMBAs are ranked individually. Schools that operate a single EMBA across several of their own campuses (such as Chicago’s EMBA, which is taken in Chicago, London and Singapore) are treated as a single programme. Although all schools receive an individual rank, the difference between them can sometimes be slight. Hence, we have also placed schools into bands of those which are statistically bunched. Programmes are ranked on two broad measures: personal development/educational experience and career development. See the full methodology here .
Beyond rankings data that reflects Ivy Exec members' perceptions of the ranked programs, all other program data provided on individual program pages was either sourced directly from the administration of the programs when possible, or from publicly available information, including: program websites, program brochures and other widely published sources (., the ROI statistic on program pages is from Financial Times Global Executive MBA Ranking 2015 , if an alternative data point was not provided by the ranked program.) Ivy Exec has made its best effort to accurately represent specific program information on the individual program pages, using the sources cited herein.
