CityU MBA enters FT’s top-100
The College’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme has entered the FT’s 2020 MBA top-100. The Financial Times rankings are widely recognised for listing the best management programmes available worldwide.
This is a milestone as significant as the College of Business entering the top-50 University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) world business research rankings back in 2014.
The ranking is based on graduates' career progress, curriculum diversity, as well as research and corporate social responsibility. Of all the surveyed fields, the salary increase of graduates from CityU's MBA programme is ranked 7th in the world. There is an increase of 159% in the average salary of graduates before the MBA to now. Graduates’ career progress, which measures the changes in their level of seniority, is rated 38th in the world.
“My congratulations go to Professor Kevin Chiang, Director of the MBA programme, and all members of his dedicated team who have put in such a tremendous effort since the programme’s relaunch in 2013,” said Professor Houmin Yan, Acting Dean of the College of Business.
Under the leadership of Professor Chiang, the MBA programme has thrived, the curriculum reconfigured, and new connections have been forged with the corporate community. Our MBA is well known for its accelerated programme with flexible extensions and the wide array of experiential learning courses on offer.
“I am sure that going forward the CityU MBA programme will continue to attract the recognition that it is due, and will develop with momentum,” Professor Yan added.
