IE Business School takes the top spot from HEC Paris

The Financial Times has published the 2012 edition of its ranking of top European business schools, which ranks European and UK-based schools based on the strengths of their MBA programs and other degrees.

This year, IE Business School has claimed the top spot from HEC Paris, which dropped to number two after six years of ranking number one.

London Business School held onto spot number three, while both INSEAD and Esade Business School jumped a few spots to land in positions four and five, respectively.

The rest of the top ten includes Switzerland's IMD, the University of St. Gallen, Erasmus University's Rotterdam School of Management, and ESCP Europe.

Strong gains were made by ESMT, which ranks 23 this year, and by Poland's Kozminski University, which rose to spot 37 from 60 in last year's ranking.

According to the FT, the "ranking is based on the indexed scores achieved by schools this year in five rankings – those for MBAs, executive MBAs, masters in management and open and custom executive education. Indexed scores reflect a school’s standing among its European peers."
