INSEAD’S Executive MBA Rankings Dropped Rapidly in Financial Times Ranking

News Reports

On November 18th, 2019, the Financial Times published the Global EMBA Rankings of business schools. The global executive MBA programme of INSEAD and its joint executive MBA programme both dropped six positions and were listed as nr. 9 and nr. 19 in the ranking. (INSEAD, Urs Peyer’s explanation)

Unfortunately, the fundraising campaign “A force for good”, which was initiated by the dean of INSEAD, Prof. Ilian Mihov, seems to have failed to make INSEAD’s programme in the corporate social responsibility get a better position. Notably, the career progress rank of INSEAD’s programme dropped more than 20%.

At the beginning of November, a former student of INSEAD published his investigation on a webpage, www.forceforgood.xyz (http://www.forceforgood.xyz/). On the webpage, the student described how he questioned an ill-advised partnership between INSEAD and its Chinese affiliate, the HOUYI Institute of Advanced Education (厚益高等教育研究院), a discredited institution notorious in China for its legal and reputational issues. Previously, it was called the Beijing Post EMBA Alumni Association and had the same logo and same founder. In July 2018, Peking University published an official announcement that denied any affiliation with Beijing Post EMBA as the Beijing Post EMBA Alumni Association (北京北大后工商管理促进会) and mentioned it would pursue legal action against the Beijing Post EMBA Alumni Association for infringements and using registered trademarks of Peking University.

On November 23, 2018, the Dean of INSEAD®, Prof. Ilian Mihov, participated in the five-year strategic cooperation agreement signing ceremony of a non-degree programme with INSEAD’s new strategic partner, the HOUYI Institute of Advanced Education, on the INSEAD® campus in Singapore. Together with HOUYI, INSEAD offered a joint post-executive MBA programme called Future Business Leaders Programme, and the tuition of the programme was 1.28 million RMB (approximately 185K USD). Dean Prof. Ilian Mihov mentioned in HOUYI’s news report that INSEAD® was committed to supporting the Future Business Leaders Programme in collaboration with the HOUYI Institute of Advanced Education and that he looked forward to its future success.

In November 2019, a reporter investigated the HOUYI Institute of Advanced Education and found out that it was actually the Beijing Post EMBA Alumni Association. According to the State Administration for Industry and Commerce in China, both the HOUYI Institute of Advanced Education and Beijing Post EMBA Alumni Association were never entered in any register. The reporter contacted the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China to get more information about the INSEAD-HOUYI Future Business Leaders Programme. The Ministry of Education mentioned that there were no records of the programme.

More and more Chinese media start to pay attention and reported about INSEAD’s collaboration with a fake Chinese institution and the record-high programme tuition.

The reporter then contacted the media relations department of INSEAD and Dean Prof. Ilian Mihov to ask for an official statement about the status of the joint programme with INSEAD’s affiliate, the HOUYI Institute of Advanced Education, and for comments about the rapidly dropping rankings in 2019.

At this time, neither INSEAD nor Dean Prof. Ilian Mihov has commented.

欧洲工商管理学院(INSEAD)与野鸡机构合作 – 2019年排名大幅下跌

《金融时报》2019年11月18日发布全球EMBA排名,欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD的两个EMBA项目排名双双下跌6名。2019年分别位列第9位和第19位。

《金融时报》中文网,仅仅以“前五名的名次几乎没有变化”一笔带过。事实上INSEAD的项目在此前三年中从未跌出前五名之外。《金融时报》于2018年引入“企业社会责任指标”,主要考察商学院在道德、社会和环境问题等方面的核心课程,以及对这些问题的参与程度。欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD在此项排名中不升反降。欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD院长,伊利安·米霍夫(Ilian Mihov)在2108年推出“A force for good”募捐活动,大力推崇“商业向善”。然而,欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD在“企业社会责任指标”排名一项,却不升反降。

非学历高管教育,在中国尤为鱼龙混杂。各种天价总裁班数不胜数。“北京北大后工商管理促进会”在所有这些提供高管教育的所谓机构中“声名远播”,北京大学在2018年7月12日就这家机构发布了“声明”。声明称“北京北大后工商管理促进会”和北大没任何关系,所有招生简章中提到的北大教授和课件都未经北大授权。“北京北大后工商管理促进会”负责人崔巍(男)不是北京大学教职工。“北大”已由北京大学进行了商标注册,北京大学对其享有专有使用权,任何机构或个人未经许可不得擅自使用。北京大学和相关教师保留追究相关机构和责任人法律责任的权利。

中国网记者在北大声明发布一个月后,于2018年8月对“北京北大后工商管理促进会”进行了暗访,随后发表了题为“北大打假将满一月,仍有野鸡机构借其名开设天价培训班”的报道。文中指出“北京北大后工商管理促进会”仍在招生,收取天价学费79.8万人民币。新浪新闻也对此报道进行了转载。

二个多月后,“北京北大后工商管理促进会”摇身一变,更名为“厚益高等教育研究院”。2018年11月23日,北大声明里被点名的“北京北大后工商管理促进会”创始人崔巍代表“厚益高等教育研究院”和伊利安·米霍夫(Ilian Mihov)代表的欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD在新加坡签署了5年的战略合作协议。双方联合推出“引领未来商业领袖项目”非学位项目,学费128万人民币。参与此项目的学生结业后由欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD颁发认证证书,并可以加入欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD校友网络。

欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD院长伊利安·米霍夫(Ilian Mihov)在2018年12月获悉“厚益高等教育研究院”存在的诸多问题后,在高额学费的诱惑下,仍坚持推动与“厚益高等教育研究院”的合作。

记者向工商部门查询“厚益高等教育研究院”的注册信息,调查结果显示,“厚益高等教育研究院”这家机构并未在任何工商部门登记注册。另外,欧洲工商管理学院INSEAD与“厚益高等教育研究院”合作推出的128万天价“引领未来商业领袖”项目并未在教育部按照相关国际合作项目规定申请报备。
