A Canadian business school with a campus in Hong Kong has been ranked number one in greater China for its executive education programmes in a leading global survey of business schools. The Richard Ivey School of Business has won the top spot in the Financial Times survey for the sixth year running and was the only school in China ranked among the top 40 international business schools in the world this year. Executive education, which provides continuing professional development for working business people, includes both public programmes taken by individuals and programmes customised to meet the needs of a particular company. The rankings were based on the combined strength of a school's public programmes and customised programmes. The school has had a campus in Hong Kong since 1998.
