The success of executive education programs depends on the satisfaction of participants – this is a rather common fact. Less common is measuring this satisfaction and being scored for ranking. This is the case for Financial Times 2020 Executive MBA Ranking, that has now introduced a new evaluation criterion, namely Overall Satisfaction, which quantifies the judgment of participants in the various editions of the program. With a score of 9,43 out of 10, SDA Bocconi’s Executive MBA ranks 25th worldwide.
The result further confirms that our EMBA is climbing international charts by leaps and bounds. And this is no exaggeration since in the past three years it has gained almost 20 positions a year in the world (47th in 2020) and 10 in Europe (25th). And it is firmly 1st in Italy.
“Besides monitoring our participants’ degree of satisfaction, which is absolutely important to us,” says Dean Giuseppe Soda, “this result confirms a steady improvement trend, which obviously is our EMBA’s pride and joy but a challenge to keep pace in climbing toward the top as well. “.
“In recent years we have met so many managers. Our greatest pride is seeing them coming in with expectations and going out with a vision”, underlines Giovanni Tomasi, past-Director EMBA that has been evaluated by the Financial Times. “Our alumni represent the true intangible asset of the School, that heritage of relationships that remain over time and mutually create value for the entire system”.
“This result crowns the work we have carried on with our EMBA programs in the past few years to redesign curricula, and to foster inclusion and technological innovation,” adds EMBA Programs Director Enzo Baglieri, “but it is, most of all, determined by the satisfaction our graduated have expressed when it comes to the evolution the Executive MBA has stimulated in their professional and personal lives. I believe this placement still isn’t up to the real quality of our program, we can do even better. It is crucial for us to keep on with the trend of the past two years, when in 2019 we have climbed from the 84th to the 65th position and now entered the first 50 in the world”.
