Financial Times Ranking: POLIMI Graduate School of Management 15th Business School in the world for sustainability education

The Executive MBA of the business school of Politecnico di Milano is also second in the world among schools belonging to technical universities

The Executive MBA of POLIMI Graduate School of Management – the business school that is part of the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano – is among the top 20 in the world, more precisely in 15th place, for the attention that is given to CSR topics in its courses (relating to ethics, green issues and social responsibility), gaining 38 positions (last year it was 53rd). This recognition is endorsed by the Financial Times, which has published its annual EMBA Ranking, according to which the Executive Master in Business Administration of the Politecnico business school is overall in 87th place globally (gaining 11 positions on last year) and 44th in Europe. If we limit the ranking only to business schools linked to a technical university (as is the case of Politecnico di Milano), POLIMI Graduate School of Management is among the only three in the world to appear in the ranking, along with the English Imperial College (25th) and the Finnish Aalto University (93rd).

Among the strengths that have led to the excellent position in the table compared to last year is the improvement in the data relating to the average annual salary three years after graduation and in the salary increase, (increase in salary after the conclusion of the Master’s degree), which has risen to +62% (+59% in 2022).

With regard to the other criteria, the 66th place for work experience (80th last year) and the 47th place for the international course experience (68th place in 2022) confirm the high professional level of those who choose POLIMI GSoM for investing in their further education. With 9 points out of 10, the Executive MBA has improved in terms of its participants’ overall satisfaction (last year it was 8.62 out of 10).

“We are very pleased with this recognition by the Financial Times, which confirms our presence in its ranking, which we entered for the first time over 10 years ago now”, said Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini, respectively President and Dean of POLIMI Graduate School of Management. “We are well aware that the Executive MBA programme is once again a point of reference for managers and other professionals who aspire to improve and strengthen their technical and leadership skills. What makes us most proud is the great leap in the rankings made by our school in relation to the importance of the issues of ethics, positive impact and social responsibility within our Master’s degree. This is a very important achievement that reflects the school’s commitment to responding to a demand for skills from managers which also includes the ability to generate a positive impact on society and to pursue goals that go beyond simply maximising profit in the short term.”

POLIMI Graduate School of Management’s outstanding educational portfolio includes approximately 40 Master’s degrees each year, including 7 MBAs and Executive MBAs (one of which is delivered in Rome in collaboration with John Cabot University), over 300 executive open programmes and various custom-designed training courses for companies. The Executive MBA takes place over a period of 20-24 months, depending on the chosen modality (evening or part time); it is dedicated to those managers who already have significant work experience and who invest in lifelong learning by undertaking a flexible and customisable training path to accelerate their professional growth and gain the managerial skills to drive innovation and transformation, living the Politecnico di Milano ecosystem to the fullest.
