Bloomberg Businessweek Updates International MBA Ranking for 2017

INSEAD leads this year's list; LBS falls from the top spot

Bloomberg Businessweek has updated its ranking of International (non-US) MBA programs for 2017.

This year, INSEAD takes the top spot, knocking LBS, which led last year, down to position number two. According to the publication, INSEAD's top position is due to the school's "top ranking in surveys of employers and alumni, as well as a boost in its recent students’ ability to obtain jobs shortly after graduation."

Spain's IESE Business School, which was ranked number five last year, takes the third spot this year, while the University of Oxford's Said Business School, takes position number four.

The top five is rounded out by Switzerland's IMD Business School, which rose two places from last year.

There's one newcomer in this year's ranking: Canada's Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University, which debuts at position number 24. 

The International MBA Ranking from Businessweek lists non-US business schools based on a variety of factors, based on surveys with employers, alumni, and students. Post-MBA salary and job placements are also factors.
