Rankings Analysis: When we last ranked Executive MBA programs in 2011, we put together two separate lists–a ranking of North American programs and a ranking of programs outside North America. In that latter ranking, INSEAD emerged as the number two player in executive MBAs. For our new 2012 list, however, we went completely global. As a result, INSEAD is ranked 24th on this combined international list, though it is still number two in EMBA programs outside the U.S.

BusinessWeek, which ranks on the basis of graduate satisfaction and a reputation poll of EMBA directors, ranked INSEAD’s  Executive MBA program 18th in the world in 2011, one notch up from INSEAD’s rank of 19th in 2009, The Financial Times ranked INSEAD fourth in the world in 2011, exactly the same spot the school occupied a year earlier.
