ESMT listed in Financial Times ranking of European business schools
ESMT has been included in the Financial Times ranking of European business schools 2011 at place 42. This ranking cumulates the Financial Times’ four individual rankings of full-time MBA, executive MBA, masters in management, and executive education programs, each with a weight of 25 per cent. Since ESMT does not offer a master in management program and, being a young school, does not yet meet the formal requirements for the MBA and EMBA rankings, its position in this combined ranking is driven by executive education. ESMT has been ranked 7th in Europe for open enrollment programs and 8th in international faculty.
Dean of Executive Education Olaf Plötner commented, "We are proud of our success in executive education and look forward to meeting the formal requirements to take part in other Financial Times rankings in the future."
