Hult’s student satisfaction has been recognized by the Financial Times in the newly released Executive MBA Ranking 2021—alongside a jump in salary after graduation and an increase in years of valuable work experience held by our students. Here are some of our highlights:

Open only to schools that are AACSB and/or EQUIS accredited, the FT’s ranking criteria takes into account factors including alumni salary, alumni career progress, and alumni aims achieved. Hear from David and Sonia, below, on their EMBA experience, and how the flexible, part-time program made all the difference to their careers.


Work experience


Hult’s EMBA cohorts are diverse groups that bring a huge amount of business knowledge to the classroom. The FT’s work experience rank takes into account the seniority of the positions held by EMBA students, the number of years spent in each position, company size, and overseas work experience completed before starting the program.



Salary increase


Hult EMBA graduates are making an average salary of $202k three years after graduation, a $19k increase from last year’s results. There’s no doubt a graduate degree is a major investment—but statistics like these go a long way in justifying the initial outlay when considered next to overall earning power.


For David, an EMBA was a key factor in achieving a new job in an unpredictable business climate:

“Doing an EMBA was all about growing my network, developing new leadership techniques, and upskilling for a new job. The world is advancing at a rapid pace, to the point that we don’t have a clear understanding of the threats and challenges we’ll be facing in years to come. A great example is Covid-19—it has challenged and changed the way we live, interact, and conduct business. Hult has taught me that with the right mindset and skills, we can overcome the unexpected.”

“[They were] SuperbI enjoyed each class for its own uniqueness. The core modules I felt were planned well and linked perfectly to the next. I enjoyed learning from external speakers and also gaining skills and knowledge I never thought I would have in areas like cryptocurrency, managerial economics, movie making and editing, and sustainability project management. Overall, I loved everything about studying at Hult and recommend it to everyone.”
