HSG continues to rise in the Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking

The Executive MBA programme at the University of St.Gallen (HSG) moves up 10 places and is now ranked 32nd in the world in the Financial Times' most prestigious ranking of business schools. The best result ever achieved.

17 October 2022. Today, the international business newspaper Financial Times (FT) published its renowned annual ranking of Executive MBA programmes (EMBA). The University of St.Gallen (HSG) was ranked 32nd worldwide. 

The Executive MBA HSG has thus jumped up 10 places compared to the previous year. This is the highest ranking the programme has achieved so far and underlines the successful strategic measures undertaken to continuously optimise the EMBA.

The ranking summarises various assessment categories. The HSG EMBA programme is already ranked first in the "Career Progress" category, which is particularly important for participants. In the equally relevant "Aims Achieved" category, the HSG EMBA was ranked second worldwide, and in the "Environment, Sustainability and Governance (ESG)" category it achieved an outstanding sixth place. The excellent ESG result underlines the relevance of the HSG's holistic teaching approach. Other categories include "Salary Today", "Work Experience" or "International Course Experience".

The Financial Times' annual analysis of universities has long been a benchmark of academic excellence worldwide with programmes evaluated as well as the universities. In the process, the University of St.Gallen has successfully positioned itself in many areas. Last year, for example, the HSG was ranked 6th among European business schools. This year, the Financial Times again rated the Master's programme "Strategy and International Management" (SIM-HSG) as the best in the world, putting it in first place for the twelfth time in a row.

For the HSG, rankings reflect the external perception of the university and help to continuously develop the quality of its offerings in order to attract excellent teaching staff as well as outstanding students to the HSG.

"This result underlines our clear strategy to become one of the best and most relevant EMBA programmes in Europe and worldwide. We feel very encouraged to further increase the importance and quality of our programme and our cohorts," says Prof. Dr. Karolin Frankenberger, Academic Director of the Executive MBA HSG.
