The Financial Times Global EMBA Ranking: National Sun Yat-sen EMBA is the only one in Taiwan to be ranked in the Top 100

National Sun Yat-sen University’s EMBA program was ranked 91st in the world’s most authoritative ranking, the Financial Times’ Top 100 Executive MBA 2022 Ranking. It is the only school in Taiwan to make the list. The outstanding corporate performance of the College of Management’s EMBA alumni have returned the College to the top 100 in the world. Among the criteria, alumni satisfaction was especially impressive.
The College of Management has received many prestigious international business awards and accreditations and has been listed in the Eduniversal Business School Ranking of the Top 1000 Business Schools for many years. In 2019, it was awarded 4 Palmes of Excellence, which it has continued to maintain to this day, ranking third in Taiwan. In 2020, it was accredited by AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) for the fourth time. The degree of internationalization and the quality of teaching and research at the College of Management are highly recognized.
“As the only EMBA in Taiwan to be listed among the top 100 in the world, National Sun Yat-sen University will continue to work hard. We hope to set another record next year,” said Shu-Chuan Jennifer Yeh, the Dean of College of Management. EMBA CEO Hero Lin mentioned that when NSYSU’s EMBA program was launched in 1998, it was the first one in Taiwan’s southern region. Over the years, it has been deeply involved in business operations, gathering the elites of Taiwanese businesses. It is committed to developing courses that incorporate the world’s top management practices, expanding international exchange opportunities, and conducting multi-directional exchanges with local leading companies and experts through overseas study and ex-situ teaching. Furthermore, through the integration of academic and industry practical resources, new management strategies of trending industries can be learned.
In response to the growing trend of human resources and market convergence among the Greater China region, the Southeast Asia Free Trade Area (SEAFTA) and the Asia Pacific region, NSYSU’s EMBA launched the Asia-Pacific EMBA (APEMBA) program in 2005. In addition, in 2011, we collaborated with Shanghai Tongji University EMBA to establish the Cross-Strait EMBA (CSEMBA) in response to the trend of high-tech network integration between Taiwan and China. Over the years, NSYSU’s EMBA has cultivated many graduates with high managerial potential through industry-academia exchanges and a diversified learning environment, working together with companies of all kinds for sustainable business. The goal is to achieve a mutually beneficial situation for both industry and academia.
The Financial Times’ EMBA ranking is based on the alumni who graduated three years ago. The criteria categories include Career Progress, School Diversity, and Research/ESG. The Career Progress survey focuses on changes before and after completing the EMBA program, such as average salary and salary increase. The ranking also includes the diversity of the school’s faculty and student composition, the learning environment, and other evaluation criteria.
According to the newest ranking, the salary growth rate of NSYSU EMBA’s 20th class (graduating in 2019) from before graduation to three years after graduation is 53%, with an average annual salary of US$181,910 (approximately NT$5,804,047). The “Aims Achieved” rate was 74%, the seventh highest among Asian schools on the list, indicating that the EMBA’s rich and diverse curriculum has a significant and positive impact on students’ career development after graduation. In terms of school diversity, the percent of international board is 68% and the percent of international faculty is 17%, indicating that the EMBA’s commitment to an international learning environment has been fruitful, attracting many outstanding international faculty and students to Taiwan.
It is worth noting that the Financial Times has placed special emphasis on the ESG (Environmental Social Governance) evaluation project. According to EMBA CEO Hero Lin, the faculty introduce the concepts of environmental protection, social responsibility, and corporate governance in the curriculum. The EMBA program is committed to cultivating students with ESG and CSR awareness and motivation. In addition to National Sun Yat-sen University’s active promotion of University Social Responsibility (USR), the College of Management has also led its faculty and students to implement the College’s social responsibility, promoting sustainable development year-round and publishing the College of Management’s Social Responsibility Annual Report since 2018, a precedent for business schools in Taiwan.
The 2022 Financial Times Top 100 Global EMBA Ranking first place was awarded to Kellogg/HKUST Business School, a collaboration between Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Second place was awarded to China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), and third place to Tsinghua University/INSEAD, a joint venture between Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management and INSEAD (Institut Européen d'Administration des Affaires).
