London Business School’s Masters in Management (MiM) has been named fourth in the Financial Times’ (FT) annual ranking of MiM programmes.
It is the fourth consecutive year the publication has named the LBS programme one of the top five MiM degrees globally.
The strong result was supported by the proportion of female students – over 50% - in the Class of 2020 as well as programme’s performance in the careers service ranking. The careers service measure is based on ratings by alumni on the “effectiveness of the careers service in supporting student recruitment”, according to the FT.
Nalisha Patel, Executive Director of Programmes and Student Experience, said the MiM’s top five ranking demonstrated the power of an LBS education to help aspiring business leaders take the next step in their careers.
“Our MiM students benefit from access to a highly experienced team of career coaches who work with them throughout their year at LBS to understand their future goals and help them be realised,” she said.
“To know our alumni feel they were well equipped and supported by our Careers Centre throughout the recruitment process is very rewarding.”
Ms Patel said it was also important to recognise the power of women in business education to inspire the next generation of leaders.
“To have a programme where more than half the cohort is female, as we had with our MiM Class of 2020, is significant. It signals to young women that they deserve to be involved at all levels of business decision-making and that a business education can be a valuable tool in helping them find that voice.”
The MiM and Global MiM (GMiM) form part of LBS’s early careers portfolio alongside its Masters in Analytics and Management (MAM) and Masters in Financial Analysis (MiF). The number of women enrolled across all early careers programme in 2021 increased by 9% on the previous year, with unique nationalities also increasing on all programmes.
