Strong Showing in QS Ranking for Executive MBA
HEC Paris and its International Executive MBA degree earned a perfect score for career outcomes in the 2019 QS ranking aiming to identify business schools doing most to enhance the employability of their graduates. The worldwide classification, released April 16, saw HEC rise eight places up the table to joint fifth, pinpointing its long-lasting commitment to its Alumni’s capacity to thrive in the C-Suite.
Alex Chisholm had nothing but praise for our business school: “HEC can be particularly proud of its efforts to help its graduates thrive in the C-Suite,” the Head of Business School Analytics at QS noted. “This includes a perfect score of 100/100 for our Career Outcomes indicator.”
The ranking is also built on very high scores for HEC’s thought leadership and employer reputation. For Nathalie Lugagne, Associate Dean for the school’s Executive Education, much of this rise in rankings comes down to the talent and hard work put in by the teaching staff and administrative teams whom she thanked warmly. It comes hard on the heels of the excellent sixth place the International Executive MBA took in the FT 2018 ranking.
QS scrutinized almost 200 schools and programs, ranking 142 programs in all. Those were compiled with an onus on the employer index (30%), followed by the academic survey (or thought leadership) (25%), executive profile (15%) and career outcomes (20%). The final 10% was attributed to diversity and gender representation amongst the program’s students.
HEC Paris International Executive MBA program seeks to give senior managers and executives a new lease of life and strong leadership skills. It currently hosts a cohort of 95 students from 26 nationalities.
