Greensboro, NC – For the second year in a row, the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) ranks No. 4 overall in the Financial Times worldwide survey of executive education, which was released today.
With offices in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, CCL also ranks No. 5 globally for Open Enrollment programs and No. 8 for Custom programs in the 2015 survey.
Additionally, the Financial Times rates institutions in 10 sub-categories for both the Open Enrollment and Custom categories.
In Open Enrollment, CCL ranked in the Top 10 in 8 categories: Preparation; Course Design; Teaching Methods & Materials; Faculty; New Skills & Learning; Follow-up: Aims Achieved; and Facilities.
In Custom, CCL placed in the Top 10 in Preparation; Teaching Methods and Materials; New Skills & Learning; Aims Achieved; Facilities; and Future Use. CCL also ranked No. 1 for the number of international participants in its Custom programs, reflecting its growing global reach and impact.
For the 14th consecutive year, CCL is the only institution — from more than 85 in the rankings — that focuses exclusively on leadership development.
The rankings are based on direct feedback from organizational and individual clients who rated leading executive education providers, including Harvard, Wharton, IMD and Insead, for quality and impact.
“The new Financial Times rankings confirm once again that CCL delivers results that matter for the many clients we are privileged to serve around the world,” said CCL President and CEO John R. Ryan. “We are grateful for our opportunities to partner with individuals, teams, organizations and entire communities on accelerating their leadership journeys.”
