The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) ranks No. 4 overall in the 2014 Financial Times worldwide survey of executive education, which was released today. CCL moved up four spots in this year's rankings.
With offices in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, CCL also ranks No. 4 globally for Custom programs and No. 9 for Open Enrollment programs.
Additionally, the Financial Times rates institutions in 10 sub-categories for both the Custom and Open Enrollment categories.
In Custom, CCL placed in the Top 10 in 8 of them: Preparation; Program Design; Teaching Methods and Materials; New Skills & Learning; Follow-up; Aims Achieved; Facilities; and Future Use. In Open Enrollment, CCL ranked in the Top 10 in 7 categories: Course Design; Teaching Methods & Materials; Faculty; New Skills & Learning; Follow-up: Aims Achieved; and Facilities.
For the 13th consecutive year, CCL is the only institution — from more than 75 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.

"These rankings confirm that our work delivers impact for individuals, teams, organizations and communities, and we are grateful for the privilege of partnering with them."
