London Business School’s MBA programme has been recognised as a world leader.

The pioneering two-year programme is ranked second in the Financial Times’ 2021 Global MBA Ranking.

The programme exhibited strength in many metrics including being placed second in the ‘alumni recommend’ classification and scoring 91% for ‘aims achieved’ – a measure of the extent to which the MBA enables graduates to achieve their goals and ambitions.

Helen Foley, MBA Programme Director, said the news was a testament to the ongoing strength of the MBA programme, its students and the value of the extensive and life-long network of more than 45,000 alumni in 155 countries across the world

“Our MBA allows our students to unlock their potential and equips them with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue their professional ambitions with confidence,” she said. 

“Upon graduation, our students join an alumni community of world-class leaders and thinkers who not only recognise the value of an LBS MBA, but also its transformational impact.”

The programme’s career services rank – a measure of the effectiveness of its career counselling, personal development, networking events, internship search and recruitment, as rated by their alumni – has climbed ten positions on the previous year continuing an upward trend and reflecting the School’s considerable investment in its careers provision. The programme’s career progress – calculated according to changes in the level of seniority and the size of company alumni work in now versus before their MBA – is also up five positions on last year.

MBA salaries continue to grow, and the programme’s corporate social responsibility rank remains strong.

Four months after graduation 90% of the School’s MBA Class of 2020 had accepted an offer of employment despite the COVID-19 pandemic and unprecedented global disruption.’
