The FT Publishes European Business School Ranking for 2017

LBS leads the list for the fourth time in a row

The Financial Times has published the 2017 edition of its European Business School Ranking, which is based on the performance of each business school's MBA, EMBA, Master in Management and Executive Education programs. 

The top 10 in this year's ranking shows only a minor shuffling from last year.

For the fourth year in a row, London Business School leads the ranking, even though the school's position in the FT's Global MBA Ranking dropped this year, from third to sixth.

Also for the fourth year in a row, HEC Paris takes the runner-up position in this year's European Business School ranking. Third place belongs to Spain's IE Business School, which rose one position. Also rising one position is St. Gallen, which this year takes the fourth spot.

INSEAD Business School drops two places to land at position number five. INSEAD's MBA program was ranked as the best program in the world in the Global MBA Ranking.

Italy's SDA Bocconi holds on to position number six, while Spain's IESE Business School drops one spot to number seven.

ESADE Business School has dropped two spots to number eight. The top 10 is rounded out by Rotterdam School of Management and Switzerland's IMD Business School. You can see the top 25 business schools, along with their ranking changes from last year, below.

The FT bases these rankings on the performance of each school's ranking across the publication's other rankings. Each program (MBA, EMBA, MiM, and Executive Education) accounts for 25 percent of the total score.
