This ranking combines two rankings: a “custom programs” ranking and an “open-enrollment programs” ranking. 

#3 worldwide for customized programs

This year ESSEC gained two places to reach the 3rd rank in the world. This ranking highlights the quality of our interactions with our corporate clients: we are ranked #1 for 6 of the 10 criteria that are evaluated. Our ability to respond to their requests, and the pedagogical quality, relevance and value for money of our programmes were all recognized.

#16 worldwide for "open-enrollment programs"

Moving up five places, ESSEC is now ranked 16th in the world and in the Top 10 in Europe (8th position) for open-enrollment programs. Graduates particularly appreciated the follow-up offered to participants during and after the training, the quality of the teaching materials and the international experience (quality and quantity of programmes in partnership with AACSB or EQUIS accredited schools).

"I am thrilled with this new progression in the rankings, says Thomas Jeanjean, Executive Vice-President, Dean for Post-experience programs. It is a further recognition of the quality of our programmes and the outcome of a collective effort that the Essec teams are making to offer programmes that match the needs of corporates, executives and managers. It is also an encouragement to continue the efforts undertaken over the last years to improve the quality of our content, accelerate the internationalization, the innovation and the creativity of our programs and always seek to better serve our clients. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to these outstanding results. We will continue working together to further progress in a highly competitive environment."
