We are proud of this recognition, which validates our focus on excellence and impact, and our belief in lifelong learning for a better, more sustainable world.”
Based on client and participant feedback, HEC Paris topped the FT rankings for preparation, participant quality, teaching methods and materials, faculty, new skills and learning, follow-up, aims achieved and value for money. It also made the Top 2 ranking for programme design, future use, and diversity of faculty through which it has almost reached male-female parity.

The three rankings feature the world's top 85 business schools, internationally accredited by either AACSB or Equis. The customised table focuses on programmes tailored to the needs of organisations, who consult with business schools to address strategic imperatives. The Open-enrollment table focuses on programmes open to participants from different organisations and at different stages in their careers, around topics ranging from cryptocurrency to entrepreneurial mindset. A third ranking combines the two tables to bring the 50 best business schools.
The classification in the 14 categories of each ranking is principally based on evaluations by the school's corporate clients (for Custom) and its participants (for Open). 20% of the ranking is also calculated from the school criteria on international clients, growth, faculty diversity, overseas programmes and partner schools.
