Luiss Business School on the Italian podium in the Financial Times ranking for Executive Education Custom

In second place among  Italian business schools,  sixty-third on the global scene In 2024 Luiss Business School participated for the first time in the Financial Times ranking for Executive Education Custom, placing second on the Italian scene and sixty-third on the global one. The Financial Times ranking for Executive Education Custom evaluates how major business and management schools respond to the training needs of companies by designing and delivering personalised programmes. The 2024 edition of the ranking - which is based on the analysis of programme data from 2023 - highlights the growth of some trends in custom executive training. More flexible models, hybrid programmes and 100% online solutions are transformations that the pandemic has initiated and that, after three years, prove to be accelerating. In particular, of the total number of participating schools, the growth of custom online programmes ranges from 19% to 30%, while hybrid programmes remain constant at 22%. Luiss Business School Custom programmes are designed to meet the needs of corporate and institutional partners through integrated offerings that rely on customisation and innovation for a measurable business impact. The programmes range from the areas of General Management, to specialisations on hard skills and soft skills, to advanced training to guide  transformation, proposing formats that, while differing in methodologies and delivery techniques, combine flexibility and experiential training. As a matter of fact, personalised training is one of the strengths on which Luiss Business School has built an undisputed position of leadership in higher education, along with excellence in teaching, the proximity to the business world and the strong experiential approach that enables students to quickly fit into the dynamics of business. "This important achievement, obtained at the first participation in the Financial Times ranking , testifies to the constant commitment  Luiss Business School has in a key sector of management training, namely the one dedicated to personalizsed programmes for companies and institutions - says Enzo Peruffo, Associate Dean for Education and Partnerships - This accomplishment is proof that, when investment in people is fundamental to meeting the challenges of growth, it is training that makes all the difference".
