Financial Times puts AMS Executive MBA as number 1 in Benelux
Taking 56th place, Antwerp Management School (AMS) successfully maintains its leading position for the Benelux in the Financial Times Executive MBA ranking of 2022. With excellent scores on quality criteria on the Work Experience, ESG, International Experience and Salary Increase, AMS is further establishing itself in the Benelux as the number 1 business school in the field of EMBA programs.
“Opening minds to impact the world.” With that baseline in mind, AMS creates the best leaders for the world and society day by day. Program Director Sam Mantoufe explains: "Participants of our EMBA program aim to have a positive impact on their teams, organizations and society. : Together with them, we are committed to continuously improve and innovate the content and approach of our EMBA to realize that purpose. To amplify the impact of our EMBA, our participants work for example on a Positive Impact Project and experience an in-depth international immersion through the global strategic challenges course. In addition, we have also developed our NeuroTrainingLab™, which helps them in boosting their leadership skills in a unique manner.”
Over the years, AMS has been consistently putting efforts into the quality and impact criteria as assessed by the Financial Times. For this, AMS is once again rewarded with an excellent worldwide ranking. Every year, the Antwerp Management School welcomes a lot of candidates with a solid working experience, giving AMS 26th place in the worldwide top 100 of the Work Experience ranking. Additionally, AMS scores very high in the ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) criterion. For this criterion, which measures the proportion of core courses about ethical, social and environmental issues, AMS ends in the 22nd place in the top 100 worldwide ranking.
With a 23rd place, AMS is also praised for its international experience delivered in the EMBA. Up until today, AMS participants have attended seminars in Africa (Cairo), the United States (Boston), Asia (Singapore) and, of course, Europe (Paris). Currently, AMS is still networking and collaborating with global EMBA participants from across the globe, and it will continue to do so. With these unique international opportunities, AMS EMBA graduates leave the program being well-prepared for any global challenge.
Not only the participants themselves but also the organizations they work for benefit from the positive influence of the EMBA during the program. Participants are constantly working on projects and assignments that are relevant for current societal and sectoral challenges. This makes the impact they have on the teams they are directing and the organizations they are transforming very concrete.
Prof. Dr. Steven De Haes, Dean of Antwerp Management School: “At AMS, we like to take the best path, not the easiest one. This is not always evident, considering the international competition among business schools worldwide. AMS has always concentrated on sustainable transformations, net positive contributions to society, and game-changing insights. Graduates from AMS spread these values in companies across the world. Prof. dr. Goran Milenkovic, Academic Director of the EMBA program, confirms: The fact that this is recognized by the Financial Times Ranking is very valuable for us, and makes us want to grow even further in the future.”
