<![CDATA[MBA Rankings 2018]]> For MBA rankings in 2018, a lot of potential disruptions are may be in store. Will changes like the planned Brexit have an effect on UK business schools? Will Asian business schools increase in stature? Will Donald Trump’s immigration policies impact the perceived prestige of US business schools?

Overall, last year’s ranking changes saw minor shifts among top schools, but overall, MBA salaries continued to improve across the board. In the 2017 Global MBA Ranking from the Financial Times, top UK business schools did fairly well, while some in the lower half of the ranking weren't quite so lucky. Insead led the list, but half of the top ten schools were based in the US. US business schools, in general, improved their standings in that ranking, with some exceptions. Schools in Australia also did well, while the Canadian schools lost ground. On the international version of the Best Business Schools Ranking from Bloomberg Businessweek, Insead led the pack here as well, while the UK schools in the top 10: London Business School, Oxford - Said, and Cambridge - Judge, lost some ground. 

What's in store for 2018? If the 2018 Global MBA Ranking from the Financial Times is any indication, improvement will be seen by US business schools, while there will be more of a mixed bag for UK schools. 

Below you’ll find a list of the main MBA rankings and their expected publication dates in 2018. For the rankings that have already been published, we’ll note the top 5 schools.

<![CDATA[The Financial Times Publishes 2018 Global MBA Ranking]]> The Financial Times has released the 2018 edition of its Global MBA Ranking.

This year, the Stanford Graduate School of Business takes the top position. This is the first time since 2012 that the school has taken the top spot. According to the ranking data, Stanford MBA graduates (from the class of 2014) make just over $214,000 per year, on average - the highest for all schools in the ranking.

Stanford has taken the top spot from the one-year Insead MBA program, which had led the ranking for the previous two years. In this year's ranking, it has dropped to position number two.

Insead is followed by the Wharton School, which retains its third-place ranking this year. 

At position number four is London Business School's MBA, which has dropped two spots. It's followed by Harvard, which has fallen one position to number five. Booth's MBA comes next, rising three spots to number six; Booth is followed by Columbia Business School, which holds on to position number seven this year. China's CEIBS has risen three spots to land at position number eight, while MIT - Sloan's MBA has climbed four spots to land at position number nine. The top 10 is rounded out by UC Berkeley - Haas' MBA.

Big Movers in the 2018 FT Global MBA Ranking

Although there wasn't much substantial movement in the top 10, some schools further down the ranking have shifted. The MBA from Cambridge - Judge has fallen out of the top 10, going from number five to number 13 this year. The MBA from Cornell - Johnson, for example, has gained ten spots this year to land at position number 17. Singapore's NUS has dropped out the top 20, going from position number 18 to 26. On the other hand, the MBA from UCLA - Anderson has made strong progress this year, jumping from number 32 to 25. Georgetown's MBA has also gained, jumping from 30 to 40.

Further down, there was even more substantial upward movement, especially among US business schools.. The MBA from Texas' Rice - Jones has jumped almost 20 spots, moving from number 64 last year to 45 this year. Also, WUSTL - Olin, which was ranked  68 last year, takes spot number 50 this year. 

On the other hand, some UK schools have not faired as well in this year's Global MBA Ranking. The Cass MBA, for instance, has last nine spots, falling from position 37 to 46. The Lancaster MBA has also dropped, from position 42 last year to number 70 this year. Strathclyde Business School has also lost ground. 

Here's a list of the top 20 schools in this year's FT Global MBA Ranking, as well as their change from last year.

Business Schools in Australia, Canada, and elsewhere

For schools outside the US and the UK, there were also some changes. Canada's McGill reappeared on the ranking this year, at position number 78. Another Canadian school, Toronto - Rotman, lost ground this year, dropping from 65 to 86. Queen's University, which was ranked at position 100 last year, has dropped off the ranking this year.

In Australia, the two business schools in the country also shifted a bit in this year's ranking: AGSM dropped from 54 to 63, while Melbourne Business School's MBA went from 76 to 66. MGSM, which was ranked in the top 50 last year, has dropped off the ranking this year.

Denmark's Copenhagen Business School debuted in the ranking this year, at position number 100.

Drop-offs

A few business schools that were listed in the 2017 Global MBA Ranking from the FT have dropped off in this year's ranking. Spain's IE Business School, which was ranked eighth last year, is nowhere to be found in the 2018 ranking. George Washington University, which was ranked 86 last year, has also dropped off. 

Other schools that were ranked last year and did not make the cut in 2018 include Vlerick Business School, Iowa - Tippie, Temple - Fox, Costa Rica's INCAE, South Carolina - Moore, IPADE, Grenoble Graduate School of Business, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

<![CDATA[Warwick Business School's Online MBA to be Offered in London]]> Warwick Business School's online MBA will soon have a second location for its face-to-face component: Warwick Business School's campus inside London's iconic Shard building.

The school's Distance Learning MBA, ranked second in the world and first in the UK by the Financial Times, includes two "Warwick weeks" where students take classes on campus. From this June, students will have the option to take these in the heart of London.

This campus is located very close to the City of London, the financial hub and home of the Bank of England, as well as major international financial institutions, offering access to business and networking opportunities. 

This will also make it easier for international students to reach the in-class portion of the program, with more international flights available from London's airports.

For more information, see the program website.

<![CDATA[US News Publishes Online MBA Ranking for 2018]]> [Update February 2018: Temple - Fox has been moved to the 'unranked' category for misreporting GMAT statistics. The following article has been edited to reflect this new information.]

The publication US News and World Report has updated its Online MBA Ranking for 2018.

When the rankings were The Online MBA from Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management led the ranking. However, the publication later reported that since the school had mis-reported GMAT statistics, it would be moved to the 'unranked' category.  The online MBA programs from Carnegie Mellon University (Tepper) and IU Kelley are tied for second place. The top five is rounded out by the Online MBAs from UNC - Kenan-Flagler and Arizona State University's Carey School of Business. See a list of the top 20 programs.

To determine the rankings, US News used five factors: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credential and training, and student services and technology. MBA accreditation is also factored into the ranking: if a school has AACSB accreditation, it influences the student engagement indicator; some credit is also given for ACBSP or IACBE accreditation. The publication only ranks US-based business schools.

Unlike other rankings of Online MBA programs, the US News ranking does not consider post-MBA salary as part of the ranking.

<![CDATA[Bloomberg Businessweek Updates International MBA Ranking for 2017]]> 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.

This year, US-based business schools dominate the top of the MBA ranking. Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management takes the lead this year.

The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business, which led the ranking last year, drops to second place this year. At $126,000, on average new Booth MBA grads had higher average salaries than those at Kellogg, but slightly lower salary increase (71 percent). 

Harvard Business School, which was ranked fourth last year, comes in at number three this year. However, UPenn's Wharton School made strong progress this year, jumping to spot number four from place 12 last year. 

Stanford Graduate School of Business—with its strong average new MBA salaries of just over $140,000—holds steady at position number five.

Placed sixth is UCLA's Anderson School of Management, which jumped from position number 14 last year.

<![CDATA[University of Georgia MBA Adds Area of Emphasis in FinTech]]> The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business now offers its MBA students the opportunity to add an academic area of emphasis in the field of financial technology, or FinTech.

FinTech is a rapidly growing sector that has been making its way into an increasing number of MBA programs.

The MBA program is taught in Atlanta, Georgia, where local companies process 70 percent of all credit, debit and prepaid card transactions in the US. Students who opt to add this area of emphasis to their degrees will enjoy close proximity to the FinTech industry.

The area of emphasis includes 12 hours of relevant coursework, which concludes with a FinTech project undertaken with a corporate partner.

<![CDATA[The Financial Times Releases Executive MBA Rankings for 2017]]> The Financial Times has released its Executive MBA Ranking for 2017.

EMBA programs offered jointly by two or more schools dominate the top spots in the ranking. The EMBA from Kellogg and HKUST leads the ranking again this year, as it did last year. This EMBA's alumni salaries three years after gradation were just over $478,000 USD - by far the highest salaries of all EMBA programs in the ranking.

Notable is that the EMBA-Global Asia program, offered by Columbia, LBS, and HKU, debuted at position number two in the ranking, the highest debut of any EMBA program, ever.

The EMBA-Global Asia program has displaced the joint EMBA from Tsinghua and Insead, which has dropped to number three.

In fourth place is the EMBA-Global program, the sister program of the EMBA-Global Asia, offered by Columbia and LBS.

Closing out the top-five is the Trium EMBA program, which is offered through a partnership between HEC Paris, LSE, and NYU - Stern. 

Another program that has placed strongly in its initial debut on the ranking is the EMBA program offered by MIT - Sloan, which took 11th place. See the list of the top 20 EMBA programs below.

The FT's EMBA 2017 ranking methodology

This is the 17th year that the Financial Times has published its Executive MBA program ranking. The ranking, as always, is based on alumni and business school data from the class of 2014. 

To be considered for the ranking, an EMBA program must be cohort-based and have at least 30 graduates each year. The business schools offering the EMBA programs must also be accredited by either AACSB or EQUIS.

Although alumni salary and salary growth are strong factors in the EMBA ranking, the publication also takes into account other data. For example, the ranking considers the research rank of a school's faculty when determining its EMBA program's rank. Other factors considered include the number of international students, International faculty, career progress and more.

<![CDATA[Forbes Updates MBA Rankings for 2017]]> Forbes has released the 2017 edition of its Biennial MBA rankings.

The publication divides its MBA rankings into three lists: top US programs; top one-year, non-US programs, and top two-year, non-US programs.

For the ranking of US-based MBA programs, Wharton leads the list, taking the top spot from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, which drops to number two. Wharton's lead was buoyed by its MBAs' strong salaries: for its class of 2012, graduates' 5-year salary gain was $97,100. 

Harvard Business School takes spot number three, and Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business round out the top-five, in that order.

In terms of the top one-year international MBA programs, Switzerland's IMD Business School leads the list. The five-year salary gain for its MBA class of 2012 was $194,700. Insead ranks second in this ranking, and is followed by Spain's IE Business School. The University of Cambridge's Judge Business School and Italy's SDA Bocconi round out the top five international one-year MBA programs.

For two-year international MBA programs, London Business School's MBA leads the list, for the fifth time in a row. Its MBA class of 2012 currently makes about $212,000 in total compensation today. Spain's IESE Business School takes the second position, also for the fifth time in a row. CEIBS' MBA program took the third position, while HEC Paris and ESADE Business School round out the top-five non-US two-year MBA programs.

To rank these MBA programs, Forbes looked at salary data from each school's class of 2012, among other factors. For this ranking, the publication surveyed more than 100 schools and surveyed 17,500 alumni. The heard back from about 25 percent of the surveyed alumni.

<![CDATA[Sonoma State University Announces Hybrid Executive MBA in Wine Business]]> The university known as a premier institution for studying the US wine business has added another wine industry program to its offering.

Sonoma State University already offers an MBA and an Executive MBA in Wine Business. But from Fall 2018 a Hybrid MBA in Wine Business will be added, allowing students to study at least partially online from home.

Hybrid MBA programs that mix online and in-class learning are becoming increasingly common as schools work to attract professionals who are unable to undertake full-time on-campus study due to work or family commitments.

On the Hybrid MBA in Wine Business, students will study three-month modules online, and then head on to campus for four 10-day residential modules in between.

Study topics include wine value chain strategies and management, brand management, and investments, mergers, and acquisitions. Students will also complete an individual integrative change project.

The M2M program gives recent university graduates the opportunity to complete two master’s degrees: they attend two top business schools in two different countries over two years.

The participating business schools are:

  • FGV Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo
  • HEC Paris
  • Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School (HKUST)
  • Sauder School of Business University of British Columbia

The M2M initiative is designed to equip future business leaders with global experience.

Successful students will graduate with two master’s degrees, one from each school they attended. Graduates will be alumni of both schools and will have access to the schools’ career resources.

Applications are now open for six M2M double degrees.

<![CDATA[The Financial Times Releases Masters in Management Ranking for 2017]]> The Financial Times has updated its Masters in Management Ranking for 2017.

In the new ranking, the publication has updated its methodology. The ranking now accounts for the change in salary between alumni's first jobs and their salaries three years later. 

Overall, with the new criteria, some UK schools made strong gains. The MSc in Management from London's Cass Business School, for instance, jumped 20 spots from 38 last year to 18 in the new ranking. Henley Business School gained 26 spots, from 89 to 63. Warwick Business School's MSc in Management jumped 15 spots, from 36 to 21; Imperial College Business School's MSc in Management rose six spots, from 20 to 14.

The new methodology has also caused some French schools to drop in the ranking. IESEG's MSc in Management, for example, dropped from 17 to 31 this year. Similarly, Grenoble Ecole de Management's Master in International Business, lost 20 positions to land at spot number 33.

The top spot in the ranking, however, belongs once again to the MA in Strategy and International Management from the University of St. Gallen; that program has held onto the top position for seven years in a row. The FT found that grads of that St. Gallen program have salaries of just over $114,000, on average, compared to $102,00 in last year's ranking.

HEC Paris' MSc in Management is once again in second place. IE Business School's Master in Management has jumped four spaces to round out the top-three. London Business School's Masters in Management program rose two places to take spot number four; ESSEC Business School, which was ranked number three last year, rounds out the top five in this year's ranking.

 

See below for the top 25 schools in the FT's Masters in Management Ranking 2017, as well as their changes from last year.

How the FT ranks Masters in Management programs

Masters in management programs are differ from MBA programs in that they attract students with less (or no) work experience.

To rank the programs, the FT collects data from two surveys: one from the business schools and the other from program graduates from three years ago. The various criteria that the publication looks at include alumni salary, placement success, The criteria that are analyzed include post-MSc salary, international mobility, placement success, and more. As noted above, in this year's MiM Ranking, the FT also looks at the change between alumni's salary immediately after graduation, and three years out.

To take part in the ranking, a business school has to be accredited by AACSB or EQUIS. The ranking only includes general Masters in Management programs; it does not include specialist programs like Masters in Account, Master in Supply Chain Management, etc.
