Rising graduate salaries boost ranking
London Business School's Masters in Management (MiM) programme has been ranked globally at number three in the Financial Times' 2018 ranking.
The average salary of a MiM graduate three years out after graduating from the London Business School (LBS) programme has steadily increased to $89,801, boosting the School’s position in the rankings. London Business School 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 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 is 96%.
Gareth Howells, Executive Director, MBA, MiF & Early Career Programmes, London Business School, said: "We’re exceptionally proud that the ranking reflects the career success of our MiM graduates, as well as the diversity of the class and London Business School as a whole.
“We continue to make major investments in the curriculum to ensure it is more integrated and practical than ever before, and meets the students’ ambitions and the changing needs of the global business economy.”
These investments include: integration of digital (including programming), numerical and interpersonal skills into the curriculum, live business projects with London firms, and global trips on social impact, and tech and entrepreneurship. Many MiM graduates go on to set up their own businesses soon after graduating.
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: Amazon, Bain & Company, Google, McKinsey, Morgan Stanley and The Boston Consulting Group.
