The Financial Times (FT) has decided to temporarily halt its annual Executive Education ranking for 2021.
In its place, the FT has published two directories of open-enrolment and custom executive education programs. These two directories—collecting information on over 100 schools—include data on the number of programs offered, the number of students enrolled, average tuition cost, among other criteria.
The FT explains the reasons behind the decision: twin factors of disruption to data collection, and the mounting pressure that schools are up against, both as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
