AMS Executive MBA is the number one in Belgium

Moving up 23 places as biggest riser in the Worldwide Top 100 Ranking, AMS is now in position 62!

Antwerp Management School (AMS) is once more included in the Financial Times Worldwide Top 100 Ranking for Executive MBAs and was ranked 62nd. This puts the program in first place in Belgium and second in the Benelux. The ranking was published on Monday November 18 on the FT website and is based on data requested by the Financial Times from both business schools and alumni.

"We are particularly pleased that we get very strong results in the highly competitive EMBA world market based on criteria that are fully in line with our own mission and values", says Prof. Dr. Steven De Haes, Dean of AMS. “Since last year, the Financial Times has added Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a criterion. This new criterion is based on the proportion of core subjects devoted to CSR, ethics, social and environmental issues. This puts us in the top ten in the world."

But we also have every reason to be proud of the diversity in our program. With an increase from 20% to 42% female participants, we are among the top ten. Which is certainly not self-evident in the EMBA world.

Moreover, as in previous years, the school continues to achieve very good results in terms of international experience. In the AMS EMBA training, we develop our participants into leaders in a dynamic international business context. During the program they visit China and the USA, work closely with fellow EMBA students from Russia, China, the USA and other European countries and are coached by an international team of faculty.

Finally, the participants’ investment in this training is also translated into a substantial progress in terms of salary. The average salary increase after graduation is 50%.

In October, AMS started a new EMBA cohort with plenty of ambition and experience. The various backgrounds provide great added value during the program. Many prospective EMBA students use the annual ranking of the Financial Times as a basis for choosing a business school. In combination with the corporate mission aimed at critical self-reflection, intercultural cooperation and sustainability, this makes AMS a strong partner for both individuals and companies.

Antwerp Management School does not only move up in the international rankings with its Executive MBA program. In the Masters in Management ranking too (published on October 28, 2019), AMS makes a big leap forward and is now in 37th place worldwide. With these two brilliant results, AMS strongly maintains its international top position.
