The FT Publishes 2015 Masters in Management Ranking

St. Gallen's MA in Strategy and International Management takes the top spot for the fifth straight year

The Financial Times has published the 2015 edition of its Masters in Management ranking.

This year, the top spot is once again taken by the University of St. Gallen's Master of Arts in Strategy and International Management. St. Gallen has topped the ranking for five consecutive years. The school "has developed a masters in management degree that is proving attractive to both students and recruiters," according to reporting from the Financial Times.

The St. Gallen program is followed by the MSc in Management from HEC Paris and ESSEC Business School's MSc in Management, which retain their second and third place positions, respectively.

CEMS' Masters in International Management rises one spot to take position number four, while the MSc in International Management from the Rotterdam School of Management climbs three places to number five. LBS' Masters in Management program rises four spots to land at position number six.

ESCP Europe's Master in Management holds on to spot number seven for the second year in a row, while WHU Beisheim's MSc in Management drops out of the top five to land at position eight. Rounding out the top-ten are SDA Bocconi's MSc in International Management and IE Business School's Master in Management.

The top program outside the UK and Europe is the Post Graduate Programme in Management from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, which ranks 15.

The top program in terms of careers rank—based on alumni status three years out from graduation—is IIM Calcutta's Post Graduate Programme in Management, which ranks 16 in the overall ranking. The best program for "placement success"—based on alumni feedback for schools' career services departments—was the MSc program at WHU Beisheim.

Among the new entrants this year are Post Graduate Programme in Management from IIM Bangalore, which debuts at position number 26; the Master in Management from France's Essca School of Management (spot 51), and the MSc in International Management from the University of Exeter Business School (position 80).
