Executive MBA at POLIMI Graduate School of Management in the world top 100


In its latest ranking, the Financial Times places Politecnico di Milano’s business school third in the world for schools belonging to “technical” universities. 

POLIMI Graduate School of Management, Politecnico di Milano’s business school, has received a new accolade for its programmes designed for managers and upper management. The school’s Executive Master in Business Administration for working professionals is among the best 100 in the world. According to the FT EMBA Rankings 2022, POLIMI Graduate School of Management’s EBA is in 98th place globally, confirming its presence in this highly-respected classification, where it was first listed in 2010.

If we take in only the ranking of business schools linked to a technical university (as is Politecnico di Milano), POLIMI Graduate School of Management is one of only three listed, together with Imperial College, UK (26/100), and Aalto University, Finland (88/100).

 “We are immensely proud that our Executive MBA is in the top 100 on a global basis. This recognition repays us for all our hard work, every day, to meet the demands for education coming from the Italian and international business community”, said Vittorio Chiesa, President of POLIMI Graduate School of Management.

The Financial Times highlighted, among the school’s strengths that helped it join the top 100 worldwide, “salary percentage increase” after completing the EMBA, which for our students is 59%.

In other ranking criteria, POLIMI Graduate School of Management is 53rd in the world for the importance the school gives to ESG (i.e. CSR, ethical and green issues) in its Masters’ courses (“environmental, social and governance” criterion). This achievement is in keeping with its B Corp certification, the only school in Europe awarded this designation. Furthermore, its 68th place in “international course experience” underscores the superb quality of its alumni, recognised in Italy and internationally. The school also improved its rank for “female students %”, which assesses student gender parity.

“As well as seeing ourselves listed alongside some of the leading business schools in the world”, added the Dean, Federico Frattini, “our place in the Financial Times Rankings shows that we are on the right path, with our good results in ESG, CSR and diversity. Our challenge now is to continue to pass on the idea that sustainability, profit and social impact can co-exist and, in this perspective, get managers to see the value to an organisation of having a higher purpose, in the choices it makes and the styles of leadership that are emerging”.

POLIMI Graduate School of Management has an educational portfolio of excellence, with about 40 Masters, including 7 MBAs and Executive MBAs (some offered in Rome in collaboration with John Cabot University), 200 open executive programmes and a series of training programmes customised for companies. Executive MBAs are 20 to 24 months long, depending on the format (evening or part-time), and are designed for managers who invest in lifelong learning, choosing a flexible and personalised programme to grow professionally and learn the management skills necessary for guiding innovation and transformation, whilst fully experiencing the ecosystem of Politecnico di Milano.
