QS Ranking Method and data source

The latest ranking from QS Quacquarelli Symonds uses different metrics to find the best executive MBA programs around the world. To rank the executive MBA programs from around the world, QS used five different metrics that measure different aspects of being a highly-rated program.

These metrics are the career outcomes, diversity, program’s reputation for employers, executive profile and thought leadership. The executive profile includes the work, management, and C-suite experience of students in a program. The five metrics are then used to calculate an overall total score.

While employer reputation carries a weightage of 30 per cent, thought leadership and executive profile hold 25 per cent and 15 per cent, respectively. Career outcomes and diversity hold the rest 20 per cent and 10 per cent, respectively. Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) has evaluated 176 global EMBA programmes from all over the world in the latest EMBA rankings.
