This is the 22nd version of the Economic Moments rankings of the world’s foremost companies of customised and open-enrolment government education programmes.

The customised ranking attributes the prime eighty five company educational institutions — these are courses customized to the teaching wants of the organisations that commission them. The 2nd ranking contains the prime seventy five educational institutions for open-enrolment programmes — courses on certain subject areas, this sort of as management, that are directed in direction of gurus irrespective of their employer. A 3rd, merged ranking lists the prime fifty educational institutions for government education, calculated from the customised and open tables.

Colleges getting component have to be internationally accredited by either Equis or AACSB and have earned revenues of at least $2m in 2019 from either their customised or open-enrolment non-degree programmes. This year, a total of 107 educational institutions took component in either or both of those rankings.

The ranking of customised class companies is compiled utilizing details from the company educational institutions and their company shoppers in 2019. Each college have to nominate a minimal of twenty shoppers. At least 5 of them have to entire the FT study for a college to be eligible for the remaining ranking.

The FT study was concluded by one,a hundred thirty five company college shoppers this calendar year — a response rate of fifty six for each cent. Each rated their programme on a ten-position scale according to a range of indicators. Their responses specifically inform the very first ten of the ranking’s conditions, from class design to comply with-up and future use, which account for a merged 80 for each cent of the ranking’s bodyweight.

Customer responses are weighted according to programme form. Customers decide on a single of three choices to categorise their programme: strategic (delivered to prime management and created to impact a company’s route) basic (delivered to management on operational facets of a firm) or functional (associated to a certain function, this sort of as internet marketing). Strategic programmes have the premier weighting and as a result the finest effect on the ranking.

Responses are also weighted according to the seniority of the particular person liable for specifying the class, the dimensions of the customer organisation and the amount of educational institutions with which that customer has commissioned customised courses in the earlier three several years.

The last 5 conditions are calculated from information and facts presented by educational institutions on intercontinental shoppers, abroad programmes, progress, lover educational institutions and college range.

The open-enrolment ranking is compiled utilizing details from class companies and people who concluded their nominated management programmes in 2019. Colleges submit one or two basic courses of at least three times in duration and a single or two innovative courses of at least 5 times. At least twenty for each cent of these programmes’ members have to entire the FT study, with a minimal of twenty concluded surveys, for a college to be deemed in the remaining ranking.

A total of five,480 members answered this year’s open programme study — a response rate of 37 for each cent — ranking components of their class on a ten-position scale. Responses by innovative and basic-amount members are merged to compute the very first ten ranking conditions.

These conditions, which involve the quality of the members, of the teaching and the relevance of the skills they obtained, inform 80 for each cent of the ranking. School details are used to compute the remaining conditions on woman and intercontinental members, progress, intercontinental location and lover educational institutions.

For both of those rankings, information and facts collected in the preceding two several years is used, exactly where obtainable, to compute conditions knowledgeable by customer and participant responses. If a college has participated for the earlier three several years, the weighting is forty:33:27, with 2020 details counting for forty for each cent. If two several years of information and facts is obtainable, the weighting is fifty five:45, with 2020 details accounting for fifty five for each cent.

The weightings accorded to the very first nine and ten conditions in the customised and open rankings, respectively, are decided by the amount of relevance shoppers and members attach to every in their surveys for the 2020 ranking. Weightings for these conditions as a result fluctuate slightly from calendar year to calendar year.

Colleges that characteristic in both of those rankings are eligible for the merged general ranking. The prime fifty educational institutions are calculated according to an equal weighting of the total scores realized in both of those rankings, alternatively than an common of ranking positions.
