Next to that, being ranked first when it comes to career progress is very important to us – essentially, it captures the core of our value proposition – our Executive MBA is a business oriented, part-time program that can fit into your working life and allow you to progress rapidly career-wise. This specific FT ranking reinforces the value of the program and I’m very proud of that.”
