Greensboro, NC – The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) ranks No. 6 overall in the 2011 Financial Times worldwide survey of executive education released today. CCL placed in the Top 10 for the 7th straight year — and remains the only institution among 50 in the survey that specializes in leadership education and research.
CCL, with offices in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America, also ranks No. 10 worldwide for Custom programs and No. 9 for Open Enrollment programs. It is the only institution in the world ranked in the Top 10 in the Open Enrollment category for 10 consecutive years.
The Financial Times ranks custom providers in several sub-categories. CCL placed in the Top 10 in 5 of them: Future Use; Faculty; New Skills & Learning; Aims Achieved; and Facilities.
In Open Enrollment, CCL placed in the Top 10 in 3 sub-categories: Faculty; Course Design; and Teaching Materials. The Financial Times executive education rankings are based on direct feedback from organizational and individual clients from around the world who rated leading executive education providers, such as Harvard, Wharton, INSEAD and IMD, for quality and impact.
“As we often say at CCL, feedback is a gift, and surveys like this offer valuable insights into what we do well and how we can improve,” CCL President and CEO John Ryan said. “We’re proud of how consistently strong our rankings have been over the past decade. The credit goes to our many clients for providing opportunities to serve them and, especially, to our women and men for their superb work in service of our mission.”
