The Wharton School has been named the best place in the world to study an executive MBA for the second consecutive year.

Released today, the QS Global EMBA Rankings 2019 profile the world’s top executive MBA programs. As well as the global table, it’s also possible to view the results by region and discover the top EMBA programs in Europe, Latin America, North America and the Asia-Pacific region. There is also a separate table for the best joint EMBA programs, offered as partnerships across more than one school.

Wharton has scored a perfect 100 in two of the five indicators used to compile this year’s ranking, thought leadership and career outcomes (read more about the methodology here). It also offers its students one of the highest post-graduation salary increases, with the average student increasing their earnings by 84 percent after graduation. Only three schools have reported a higher percentage this year: Leeds University Business School (100 percent), Yale School of Management (103 percent) and Warwick Business School (114 percent).

Previews of the global table and each regional table can be found below, while over the coming weeks TopMBA will be publishing ‘alternative’ top 10s, based on percentage of female students, class size and other factors which may influence your decision when choosing where to study an executive MBA.
