The Executive MBA programme at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in the Netherlands has again been ranked No.1 in the world for career progression.


The ranking is part of the annual Financial Times Executive MBA report, released this week, and mirrors the result from the 2009 when Nyenrode also topped the chart in career progress.


Career progress is defined as the degree to which students have moved up the career ladder since graduation. Criteria for measurement include changes in level of seniority, salary increase and the size of company in which they are employed.


Desiree Van Gorp, Program Director of the Executive MBA at Nyenrode says, “Looking at the bigger picture, the fact that our Executive MBA has again been ranked by the Financial Times is a great achievement. Next to that, being ranked first in career progress for the second time in quick succession is very important to us. Essentially, it captures the core of our value proposition - our Executive MBA is a business oriented, part-time program that can fit into your working life and allow you to progress rapidly career-wise. This specific FT ranking reinforces the value of the program and I’m very proud of that.”


Nyenrode also scored well for the international mobility of its students. The report found that alumni who moved to a different country after graduation earned more. 65% of Nyenrode EMBA alumni were in this category against an average of 14% globally.


The Executive MBA course at Nyenrode is a part-time course that runs over a period of 21 months in a modular structure including two twelve day modules at Kellogg in the US and Stellenbosch in South Africa.


The programme is taught in English and is currently accepting applications for the start of the next intake in March 2012.

career is the progress and actions taken by a person throughout a lifetime, especially those related to that person's occupations. A career is often composed of the jobs held, titles earned and work accomplished over a long period of time, rather than just referring to one position.
