Financial Times Executive Education Survey Ranks CCL in Top 10 Globally

JAKARTA, Indonesia, COLOMBO, Sri Lanka and HANOI, Vietnam, May 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) ranks No. 10 overall in the Financial Times worldwide survey of executive education, which was released last Monday, 14 May.

CCL retains its position as the top-ranked executive education for Open Enrollment programs in the 2018 survey of the world's best educational institutions. It is the 17th consecutive year that CCL has earned a Top 10 ranking in the survey.

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.

"CCL is focused on getting results for our clients, and these rankings demonstrate the critical difference that leadership development makes for individuals and organizations," CCL President and CEO John R. Ryan said. "It is a privilege to partner each day with world-class clients around the globe and to be in the company of so many outstanding educational institutions in this survey."

"We are privileged to retain our top ranked position in the 2018 FT rankings. This ranking is testament to the quality of our research, the impact we create for the organizations and individuals, and the engaged and motivated team we have around the world," said Thomas Goh, Chief Client Officer and Managing Director, APAC. "Today, in the Asia-Pacific region, disruption has become second nature across entire industries. Against this backdrop, leadership development, particularly that which prepares leaders for the future, has become more crucial than ever. Organizations and individuals need to build the foundation to innovate and adapt. We continue to be committed to helping our clients navigate through a rapidly changing landscape."

"MAS believes that people are our greatest asset and they must be empowered," said Shakthi Ranatunga, the Group Human Resource Director of MAS Holdings (Private) Limited. "With CCL's intellectual ambition, and an innovative curriculum featuring a unique blend of assessment tools and experiential learning, we are able to grow our talents both professionally and personally. We are proud of the journey we have started with CCL in creating a culture of coaching at MAS, and we look forward to continuing our partnership."
