HEC Paris ranked #1 worldwide by the Financial Times for its Executive Education programs

12 May 2014

The Financial Times ranks HEC Paris #1 worldwide in its annual ranking of the world’s top Business Schools in executive education programs for senior managers and executives.

This combined ranking evaluates both open-enrolment programs for individuals as well as custom-designed programs for companies. Mainly based on the satisfaction of participants and corporate clients, it highlights the quality of the program design, teaching methods, new skills and learning, and excellence of the faculty.  

HEC’s custom programs have been ranked Number 2 in the world for six consecutive years (Number 1 in Europe) and our open-enrolment programs have progressed over the last ten years from Number 27 in 2004 to Number 3 today.
"We’re grateful for the tremendous vote of confidence which our participants and clients have shown us. Maintaining a leading position worldwide in the face of growing competition and an evolving landscape of executive education is an exciting challenge," says Marina Kundu, in charge of Executive Education at HEC Paris.

Bernard Ramanantsoa, Dean of HEC Paris, concludes: "The rankings will have an important impact on the recognition of HEC Paris as a worldwide leader in management education. This success wouldn’t have been possible without the joint effort of HEC Paris staff members, our faculty and of course our executive education participants and partner companies who have placed their trust in our programs."
