UK Dominates Bloomberg Businessweek's 2016 International Business School Ranking

London Business School ranked first in Businessweek's Best International Business Schools 2016

Business schools took out three of the top five spots in Bloomberg Businessweek's ranking of top international business schools for 2016 - ie. business schools not based in the US.

This despite British business schools preparing for potential fallout as a result of Brexit.

London Business School was ranked first, up from second last year, with INSEAD - with campuses in France, Singapore and the UAE - taking second place.

In third was Oxford University's Saïd Business School, followed by Cambridge Judge Business School and then Spain's IESE Business School in fifth place.

There were a few big moves in this year's ranking. For instance, Australia's Melbourne Business School gained 14 spots to land at position number nine. Canada's Ivey Business School, which was ranked number one last year, dropped nine places to land at position number 10. 

This year's ranking maintained focus on how successful schools are at channeling MBA graduates into good jobs. And just like Businessweek's 2016 ranking of US business schools, this year's international ranking provided an increased focus on what graduates can expect from their careers. This section looks at the cost of undertaking an MBA - including lost earnings while studying - and how this is offset by graduates' future earning prospects.

Earlier this week the Financial Times released its ranking of European Business Schools, where London Business School also took first place.
