In a global comparison, Aalto EMBA ranked 76th by the Financial Times. Over 3,000 EMBA programs are currently being offered around the world, with only the top 100 making it onto the Financial Times' ranking. The Financial Times' ranking assesses 15 categories such as the versatility of the program, teacher qualifications, and students' career progress, salaries and the achievement of personal goals. The ranking is based on assessments and information collected from students, and on statistical data produced by the schools. The ranking survey is sent to former EMBA program participants three years after their graduation.
The Aalto EMBA Program modules are prepared and presented by a world-class faculty of professors from Aalto University and renowned business schools across the globe. In addition to the academic qualifications, they are both excellent teachers and have significant experience with senior-level managers in international organizations. Presentations and assignments encourage participants to link the academic input on the latest business and management theories with their professional experience in organizations and to reflect upon their own views and practices.
