The Financial Times Publishes Master in Management Ranking for 2020

St. Gallen leads the ranking, for the tenth year in a row

The Financial Times has published the 2020 version of its Master in Management ranking. 

For the tenth year in a row, the MA in Strategy and International Management from Switzerland's University of St. Gallen leads the ranking. According to the ranking's data, the average salary for graduates three years after completing the program is over $113,000 USD. 

The Master in Management from HEC Paris is ranked second again, as it has been since 2014. The Masters in Management programs from ESSEC Business School, London Business School, and Rotterdam School of Management round out the top-five.

In sixth place is ESCP Europe, which fell one spot. The Stockholm School of Economics is in seventh, having jumped in the top-10 from spot 13 last year. Other climbers include Imperial College Business School, which rose from 14 to 10; and Germany's WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management (20 to 12).

Further down the ranking, some business schools in France showed strong growth this year, including Neoma Business School, which rose from 43 to 28; and La Rochelle Business School, which went from 66 to 48. 

Some UK schools weren't so lucky: City, University of London fell from 24 to 43; Durham University Business School fell from 50 to 63. Some of the UK schools at the bottom of last year's ranking (University of Strathclyde, Nottingham Business School, and University of Exeter for example) fell out completely this year. 

The Financial Times publishes its Master in Management ranking annually. To be eligible for consideration in the ranking, an MiM program must be delivered in a full-time, cohort format, and have a minimum of 30 graduates per year. 114 MiM programs took part in the ranking process this year. The ranking looks at a variety of factors, including post-degree salary, international mobility, and international course experience, among others. 

However, other UK schools showed improvement: Lancaster University Management School, for instance, rose from 79 to 58.
