Lots of MBA students are looking for the opportunity to find work in other countries. The FT rankings are very useful because they show the schools with the best international mobility, the highest employment rates and the most international students. In this post, which I update annnually, I pick the 40 FT-ranked schools with the highest international mobility, remove the ten with the fewest international students [in 2018, I've removed 9 because two schools had equal scores], and then remove the ten remaining with the worst careers services ("placement", in earlier rankings).
The top 20 schools are below, sorted by their 2018 FT ranking from top to bottom. I've put a * after the name of schools that made the list in 2017 (extra stars if also in 2016 or 2015).
Rank in 2018
4 London Business School***
11 Iese Business School***
13 University of Cambridge: Judge***
18 National University of Singapore Business School*
20 Esade Business School***
22 Nanyang Business School*
29 SDA Bocconi*
33 University of Hong Kong
36 Alliance Manchester Business School*
41 Warwick Business School***
46 City University: Cass*
51 Imperial College Business School*
60 University of St Gallen***
61 Cranfield School of Management***
75 Edhec Business School*
94 WHU Beisheim
96 Essec Business School
99 EMLyon Business School
Seven of those are in the bottom half of the FT top 100, the same as in 2017, showing that good outcomes are possible even for students without stellar GMAT scores if they have good applications.
A notable factor, in 2018, has been the rise of schools in the far east: NUS and Nanyang re-entered (and HKU are entered) the top 20, while Insead, EDHEC and ESSEC all have full-time MBA tracks divided between France and Singapore.
PS The same approach is used to compare masters in management degrees at https://find-mba.com/board/general-forum/best-msc-mim-degrees-for-international-students-placement-52915
