The School of Business Executive Education’s open-enrolment programmes at the American University in Cairo (AUC) have been ranked among the Financial Times’ (FT) top 75 open-enrolment executive education programmes worldwide.
This year’s ranking of AUC’s Executive Education programmes jumped seven places to number 67, maintaining the school’s position on the world map as the only ranked school in the Arab region and one of three in Africa.
Associate Dean for Executive Education and External Relations at AUC’s School of Business Ghada Howaidy said, “We are very proud of the school’s Executive Education team, who have worked hard to achieve this result.”
“With the vast number of universities and executive programmes globally, being FT ranked bears witness to our impact and the extent to which professionals find the reconfigured programmes we offer relevant to their business needs and best-in-class. We promise to continue working hard to get even better,” she added.
This year’s FT executive education open-enrolment rankings are primarily based on data provided by learners and collected from the schools. The rankings are based on 10 criteria assessed by participants and six for data submitted by the schools. Participant criteria include preparation, course design, teaching methods and materials, faculty, quality of participants, new skills and learning, follow-up, accommodation, and facilities.
As for school surveys, the criteria incorporate the percentage of female participants, international participants, growth, international location, partner schools, and faculty diversity.
Ranked for the first time by FT in 2013, and consistently in the ranking ever since, the AUC School of Business Executive Education programmes maintain their leading position as a regional platform for world-class executive education.
