EMBA SNAPSHOT Executives taking the top EMBA courses in the U.S., Europe and Asia have average salaries of around $130,000 to $200,000. A typical EMBA student is likely to be aged in the early 30s, with 6-10 years of working experience. A top EMBA course can cost $100,000. Customized courses start at a few thousand dollars.

All of the league tables prepared by groups such as the Economist Intelligence Unit, BusinessWeek, U.S. News & World Report and the Financial Times put these names in the top tier.

Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, for example, tops the latest full-time MBA rankings of BusinessWeek and the EIU, and heads the FT's executive education open programs.

Wharton leads the FT's rankings for executive MBA programs, followed by Kellogg and Chicago GSB, while Harvard and Stanford are the top full-time MBA programs for U.S. News & World Report. Kellogg and Wharton top its executive MBA list.

The only non-U.S. names likely to appear in any of the top 10 lists are Swiss-based IMD, INSEAD of Paris, Spain's IESE, ESADE and Instituto de Empresa, the London Business School and Imperial College (UK) and Belgium's Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School. Canada's Queen's business school also ranks highly.

Outside of North America and Europe, some of the highest rankings achieved in the Asia-Pacific come from the Melbourne Business School, the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai, the Hong Kong UST School of Business, Macquarie GSM, the Australian GSM and Singapore's Nanyang Business School.

In the custom executive education sphere, Duke University's Duke Corporate Education, IMD of Switzerland and London Business School are ranked highly by the FT. Stanford, INSEAD, IESE, Columbia and Thunderbird University's Garvin school also make the top ranks for customized courses.

The British Treasury has its own list of the top 50 full-time MBA programs from around the world, with Harvard, Columbia, Wharton and IMD leading the way.

The dominance of the top U.S. institutions carries through to enrollment numbers. The top 250 business schools in the United States account for about 50,000 full-time MBA students, but almost 7,000 of these are housed in just five schools.

Harvard tops the list with 1,786 full-time students, followed by Wharton with 1,639, Columbia 1,196, Chicago 1,088 and Kellogg 1,053, according to figures compiled by U.S. News & World Report.
