Esade, the fourth best business school in the world for executive education according to the Financial Times

The Financial Times Executive Education ranking, based on the opinion of program participants and the assessment by this British publication of different aspects of programs, has two different sections: Open programs and Custom programs for companies.

In Open programs, Esade Executive Education ranks #4 best in the world. This result, according to the dean, "is the result of making executives the focal point of the education process, enabling them to design their own academic journey whilst finding solutions for their educational needs that are compatible with their personal and professional agendas." "With this strategy, Esade continues to advance content customization and flexibility between online and face-to-face modes," said Correa, "making Esade the first business school to enable the customization of executive masters with new designs in response to real-life, present-day challenges by means of ecosystems enabling genuine innovation, with a range of programs focused on what executives really need, including programs different from those usually found in business schools."

Along this line, the dean of Esade Executive Education explained that "the new portfolio of Open Executive Education programs is designed in response to executives' needs and offers different programs and innovative design in terms of both concept and methodology", citing by way of example the new Advanced Management Program (AMP), which is far more experiential, and unique programs such as "Diversity & Inclusion" and "Reimagine HR", to be launched soon.

The Custom programs taught by Esade Executive Education rank #8 in the world, a position which as Marc Correa emphasizes, "showcases the fact that our programs cater fully for corporate needs." "This is possible thanks to our experience in guiding companies through their transformation, a factor ranked #7 best in Europe by the Financial Times," he explained before adding that, "the work of our new Corporate Learning Solutions division in developing custom educational solutions for global benchmark companies, and also our alliances with strategic partners, are of crucial importance along this road."
