London Business School's Masters in Management (MiM) programme has been ranked globally at number six in the Financial Times' 2016 ranking.

London Business School is ranked number one in the world for its international student body, with international students accounting for 98 per cent of the MiM class of 2015. It is also the top ranked UK school, and the only UK school to feature in the top ten. 

The School ranks second in the world for international mobility and aims achieved; a measure of the extent to which graduates fulfilled their stated goals for doing a MiM. London Business School’s placement success rank (10) is also significantly higher than the average of the top ten schools (16).

Leila Guerra, Executive Director, Early Career Programmes, London Business School, said: "Our global diversity is extremely attractive. Our students gain a lot from the rich peer mix and a life-long, cross-generational, network of alumni worldwide. The ranking results today are a testament to this and to the exciting careers that our graduates go on to lead.” 

The average salary reported by London Business School's 2013 MiM students was $80,526 three years after graduation, an increase of more than 9 per cent since the first ranking two years ago. 96 per cent of the class were employed within three months of graduation, based on a 98% reporting rate; one of the highest among the schools ranked.

The Financial Times’ MiM ranking is based on a relative assessment of the world’s top pre-experience degrees in general management. The ranking is calculated through a broad range of criteria including ‘salary today’, ‘placement successes’ and ‘international mobility’.

Some of the School’s major recruiters of MiM graduates across different sectors include: The Boston Consulting Group, Goldman Sachs, Google and Mastercard.
