37 years old, 13 years of work experience, part of a class of 34. That is the portrait of the average EMBA student at MIP as QS snapped it during its latest ranking.

Last week, QS published the first edition of the QS Global 100 EMBA Ranking 2017 by Region and the QS Joint EMBA Ranking, that rates the best programs designed for working senior executives. MIP Politecnico di Milano ranked 24th, becoming part of a ranking that includes top performers such as London Business School and HEC Paris.
Since 1990, QS has been helping students to answer to the difficult question “Which program suits me best?”
Nunzio Quacquarelli, CEO of QS explained:

“Studying an executive MBA is a major investment in one’s career. These days, many students are self-funded, either by choice or necessity. We have compiled these rankings with them in mind. Our objective is to provide aspirant EMBA students with a unique lens, helping them to put into focus programs relevant to their individual goals and ambitions”.

This ranking evaluates various aspect of the EMBA programs, thinking about what students need. For example, it focuses on the global reputation for employability and thought leadership and research strength. It also considers the career outcomes of an EMBA as well as the executive profile, experience and level of diversity in the class.
Thanks to this multiple approach, it is easy to identify MIP best performing areas. So, when it comes to thought leadership, MIP ranks 22nd, while in “Recruiter Reputation”, it catches up 10 positions, ranking 14th.
