LBS comes first among graduate business schools according to the FT’s European Business School 2017 ranking
4 December 2017: In detailed analysis covering the top 95 graduate business schools in Europe, the Financial Times (FT) has ranked London Business School (LBS) as the top school in Europe for the fourth year running.
The ranking represents arguably the most comprehensive assessment of European business education today, measuring the quality and breadth of graduate business schools’ programmes.
The FT’s league table assesses both degree and executive education programmes, and covers the MBA, Executive MBA (EMBA), Masters in Management (MIM) as well as Open and Custom designed Executive Education programmes.
François Ortalo-Magné, Dean of London Business School, said: "We appreciate this latest recognition of the commitment and excellence of our faculty, staff, students and alumni. At LBS, we strive to have a profound impact on the way the world does business, and the way business impacts the world. We want to challenge preconceptions and create an environment that inspires and supports our students to unleash their potential.”
As shown by the FT’s report, average MBA alumni salary three years after graduating from the School is 92% higher than when the individual started their studies at LBS. The programme can be completed in 15, 18 or 21 months and tailored to an individual’s interests with the opportunity to take part in international exchanges.
The FT analysis also covers LBS’s Masters in Management programme and notes a salary uplift of 63% three years after graduation from this plan of study.
While LBS tops the European business school ranking, it operates globally with a campus in Dubai and partnerships with Columbia University in the US, the Fudan School of Management in Shanghai and the University of Hong Kong.
A key contributor to LBS’s number one European position is its Executive Education programme which develops learning solutions for participants from over 130 countries and delivers custom programmes in 40 different countries. Each year, LBS welcomes more than 10,000 individuals to its various Executive Education programmes.
