Kozminski University's Executive MBA advances in the global "Financial Times" ranking!

Kozminski University's Executive MBA program has advanced to 54th place (from 63rd) in the global " Financial Times" ranking. It is the only Polish program that has been present in this ranking for over 10 years and still holds a strong position among the top one hundred universities in the world. At the same time, it is the best and only Executive MBA program in Central Europe. The ranking is published annually by the Financial Times.

Studies at Kozminski University have been evaluated similarly to two American programs of renowned universities Michigan and Georgetown or the Dutch Erasmus University.

The "FT" ranking is a unique overview of the latest trends in management education at the highest executive level. The Executive MBA program is designed for managers with several or even more than ten years of experience, who by the time they enter the program are already at a senior level, referred to as C-level.

Executive MBA students choose studies at Kozminski because we put emphasis on the development of business through new technologies and artificial intelligence, but we also have in mind sustainable development, ecology and business ethics. To be a real business leader today, it is not enough to win the competitive battle for market advantage. You have to be able to fight for more and operate from a global perspective, with a good understanding of the changing world - says Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector of our University.

The MBA program is constantly evolving, but its core remains advanced knowledge in financial analysis, economics, law and management. The program offers managers proven tools to be effective in practice. The knowledge is updated and supplemented with modules related to social responsibility of leaders and their personal development - says Sylwia Hałas-Dej, Ph.D., Dean of the Kozminski Executive Business School.

The quality of education at Kozminski University is confirmed by international accreditations that the university has held for 22 years, when it was first awarded the European EQUIS accreditation. Today it is also accredited by AACSB and AMBA, which means that it is in the elite group of less than one percent of business schools in the world (out of 15 thousand existing) that hold the Triple Crown accreditation. In line with current trends, the university also received BSIS accreditation in 2020 and was the only university in the region to be qualified for the Positive Impact Rating. Both initiatives are geared towards the university's proactivity in putting sustainability goals into practice and making a positive impact on the business environment. "Financial Times" in the ranking of EMBA programs - in addition to the career of graduates - also evaluates social diversity understood as the diversity of students and lecturers in terms of gender or nationality.

Kozminski University has already graduated over 5 thousand students. It is the oldest MBA program in Poland, run continuously since 1998. According to the Executive MBA Council (EMBAC), the average cost of an Executive MBA program is USD 87,000 worldwide, and USD 200,000 in the US. At ALK the cost of an EMBA is 66,600 PLN. In October 2021, the 61st edition of this program will be inaugurated. Graduates highly appreciate the activities of the Alumni Club and regularly meet as part of the university's networking activities. More information about our Executive MBA studies in English
