Financial Times 2016 European Business School Rankings

London Business School tops the ranking for the third year running

The Financial Times' 2016 European Business School rankings have named London Business School as the top European B-school for the third year running.

The FT ranking measures the quality of a school across its postgraduate programmes, as determined by its performance in the FT's program rankings: MBA, EMBA, Masters in Management and two other executive education rankings. Only schools that take part in all five of these rankings are eligible for a full score.

Of the schools that met this criteria, HEC Paris was ranked second, followed by Insead in third place (after topping the full-time MBA and EMBA rankings this year). IE Business School in Spain was ranked fourth, with the University of St Gallen's business school in fifth place.

90 European business schools were ranked in total.

London Business School's programmes were ranked within the top 10 in each of the programme categories, and its diverse student body was also a key decider in its top placement.

The full rankings and methodology are available on the Financial Times website.
