個人的には、今年は突然ランキングに入ってきたIIMA（Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad）が印象的です。最近、IIM出身者がよく自分のまわりにいるので、しばしば耳にするスクールでした。いきなり11位とはさすがはインド。
Manchester Business School rises to world 29 in The Financial Times MBA ranking
Manchester Business School is placed 29th in the world by The Financial Times in its ranking of the world’s leading business schools, published today (Monday 31 January).
This significant rise means that Manchester’s 18-month full-time MBA programme is now placed 11th in Europe and 4th in the UK, confirming its position as one of the world’s toughest and most rewarding programmes. Crucially The FT also rates Manchester’s Doctoral programme as best in the world.
The rise in the rankings reflects the excellent salary progression Manchester Business School’s MBAs can achieve three years after completing the programme. According to The FT, they can expect a 111% salary increase.
Professor Michael Luger, Dean of Manchester Business School said: “We’re immensely proud of our alumni who have achieved such outstanding career success since leaving us. In a harsh economic climate investing in your career progression by taking one of the world’s toughest MBAs is a crucial decision and return on investment is key.
“Manchester’s rigorous programme stretches our MBAs – both intellectually and practically. We invest significantly in the amount of client contact our MBAs experience throughout the 18-month programme, which is designed to ensure the original thinking they learn is applied to solve business challenges in the real world. So it’s gratifying to see The Financial Times recognises that such an intellectually stimulating programme is financially rewarding too.”
The FT’s findings echo Bloomberg Business Week’s recent ranking of the world’s best business schools, in which MBS is rated third in the world for return on investment; as does Forbes which consistently highlights MBS’ excellent ROI.
The 2011 FT ranking also highlights Manchester’s continuing strengths which have been evident over several years:
13 in the world for career progression
14 in the world for international mobility
19 in the world for international experience
