Korea University (KU) Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) ranked 12th in the 2012 Financial Times’ (FT) EMBA ranking. It is the first time that a domestic university ranked in global Top 20. KU made a big progress, since it ranked 23rd in 2011. This year, KU EMBA gained high scores especially in the following criteria: salary increase, career progress, work experience, and faculty with doctorates. It now stands shoulder to shoulder with the world’s greatest universities, such as Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (8th) and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business (10th). Other than KU, only Yonsei University (70th) ranked in Top 100 in Korea.
