Kozminski University among the best business schools in the world for executive education and development programs according to the “Financial Times” Executive Education 2024 rankings.

In the rankings published today by the “Financial Times” (Custom Executive Education and Open-Enrolment Executive Education), Kozminski University stands alongside leading institutions from the US (including the University of Michigan), the UK (including London Business School, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge), and the Netherlands and France, distinguished in providing executive education and development programs for companies. This confirms the university's leadership position, as it is the only one from Poland and Central and Eastern Europe to be included in these rankings. The presence in today’s rankings is further evidence of the growing importance of the university’s collaboration with the business sector and a confirmation of its strategic direction.

“Financial Times” Custom Executive Education 2024 Ranking

The first ranking published today – Custom Executive Education – includes universities from around the world that excel in providing development programs for companies. The custom training programs for businesses, addressing specific needs and challenges faced by organizations, were critically assessed and analyzed. Kozminski University has maintained its position from last year, confirming the quality of its tailored programs that support the development of team leaders and executives.

One of the companies that opted for Kozminski’s offer is Tide Software, a leading domestic provider of CPaaS communication platforms and a telecom operator for businesses. The company’s leaders participated in a custom program to develop management competencies.

Jolanta Hryniewicka, Vice President of Tide Software, emphasizes: “In a technology company and such a rapidly evolving industry, finding the right educational partner who understands the specifics of the global market and can tailor a development program to the business context and specifics was crucial. Here, we have a combination of the latest managerial strategies and innovative business practices. Thanks to our collaboration with Kozminski University, we are enhancing the competencies of our leaders, preparing them for managerial roles. Regardless of the economic climate, we invest in the development of leaders, not just their promotion. Investment in studies at Kozminski translates into increased awareness and confidence of managers in their roles, higher team engag"ement, and consequently, a lower single-digit turnover rate, which is below the market average.”

“Financial Times” Open-Enrolment Executive Education 2024 Ranking

The second ranking published today – Open-Enrolment Executive Education – covers business schools that excel in conducting open development programs, such as postgraduate studies. Kozminski University advanced five places in this ranking compared to last year, highlighting its presence alongside schools like HEC Paris, IESE, London Business School, Insead, and ESCP.

“We are proud that Kozminski University has once again been recognized as the best partner in Central and Eastern Europe for education for both individual and business clients”, emphasizes Dr. Sylwia Hałas-Dej, Dean of Kozminski Executive Business School. “A stable position in rankings encompassing the best business development programs and postgraduate studies from around the world confirms that we meet global standards and offer an approach perfectly tailored to the changing environment and needs of both managers and organizations.”

For all those seeking development programs – whether for themselves or for employees or leaders within their organization – the “Financial Times” rankings published today indicate which business schools’ offerings are worth considering. Representing Poland and the Central and Eastern European region, Kozminski University stands as a leader in individual and corporate development at the highest level.
