RSM Executive MBA gains 11 places in FT ranking
In the Financial Times Ranking published today, RSM EMBA jumps from place 54 to 43, reaffirming its position as number 1 EMBA the Netherlands, but also putting it firmly back in the global top 50 for Executive Programmes. The programme’s strong CSR performance and the quality and breadth of RSM’s academic research are the drivers behind this the jump. “This result clearly reflects our mission to stand out as a research-led business school, that wants to be a force for positive change”, Dean of Executive Education Nicola Kleyn responds.
The business of sustainability
In the FT’s Corporate Social Responsibility subranking, RSM’s EMBA even finds itself in the top ten of business schools worldwide. “The key benefit of doing an MBA has traditionally always been the tight integration of all knowledge domains that today’s leaders need. For some time, the school has been working tirelessly to design our programmes around the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. For example, our EMBAs now also learn about the business of sustainability not just as a separate elective, but also in their finance courses. This dedication to CSR-driven, sustainable business really lies at the heart of our programmes.”
The latest ranking result can also be tracked back to the academic successes of the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM). This established research institute is home to many of RSM’s scholars and is seen as one of Europe’s leading management and business research institutes. This ensures that the latest academic insights in fields ranging from marketing, operations management to HRM and supply chain management quickly find their way into MBA classrooms.
