HEC Paris ranked one of the world’s top 3 providers of Executive Education programs for the last 7 years

The Financial Times rankings place HEC Paris third overall for Executive Education and second for customized programs in 2016. The school secures top position in categories determined by company feedback, including the highest quality of teachers. This year, for the first time ever, HEC Paris also has the highest level of Faculty diversity out of any business school in the world.

FT Business Education Executive Education Ranking 2016

HEC Paris has retained its number two position in the world for customized programs in Executive Education for the eighth year running. That’s according to the 2016 Financial Times rankings, which assessed the quality of education for senior executives among the world’s top 85 management schools. Once Open-enrolment programs were included, HEC Paris came third overall in the league table (see page 8 of the FT Executive Education Report).

For the customized programs HEC Paris was deemed to have the highest quality of teachers in the world, and also came top in categories pertaining to preparation, program design, the new skills participants learned, aims they achieved, and quality of follow-up provided to participants.  Companies were pivotal in determining these results. Ten of the criteria that determined the rankings were based on the ratings of the firms that commissioned the programs.

For the first time this year, HEC Paris also came top in faculty diversity for its customized programs, with women comprising about half of teaching staff and overseas lecturers making up two thirds of the Faculty. In previous years, the school had always appeared in the top ten in this category, but had never held the lead position.

HEC Paris Executive Education provides a complete range of professional development and training programs that meet the specific challenges and needs of individual organizations. By establishing close working relationships with corporate clients, it continuously strives to be to be a leader in Executive Education worldwide.
