For the past 2 years, emlyon business school has continued to climb the Financial Times "customised programmes" list(+14 places), now ranking 29th in the world and 6th in France. It has now entered the Top 30 of the 80 best business schools in the world, all EQUIS or AACSB accredited.

This ranking is based on the answers to the 2019 Financial Times questionnaire by emlyon's client companies in France. Each school has to nominate a minimum of twenty clients and at least five of them must complete the survey for a school to be eligible for the final ranking.

The companies surveyed particularly appreciated the "Future Use" criteria, which places emlyon 7th worldwide for the client's intention to use our school again, "Program design" and "New skills & learning".

"emlyon's constant progression in this ranking underlines our ability to offer companies skills development systems that are in line with their transformation challenges, together with innovative solutions based on our "early maker" learning. Our clients' appreciation of the "Future Use" criterion is a strong sign of recognition and trust. It reflects the close relationship we maintain with companies and the spirit of co-building that we ensure is at the core of each system." Romuald Gallet, Executive Education Development Director.

"This ranking is further proof of the excellence which emlyon's top-level teams demonstrate every day. They deliver a highly ambitious Leadership transformation program for our managers which they co-developed with us. We particularly appreciated their client-oriented attitude, the quality of the course content and their great flexibility." Franck Baillet, Executive Vice President, Learning & Development Capgemini France.

The final five criteria are calculated based on information provyonided by schools on international clients, overseas programs, growth, partner schools and diversity among teaching staff.
