CEO Magazine’s 2016 Global MBA Rankings
MBA Blog / 8th February 2016
This year CEO Magazine reached out to over 300 business schools across North America, Europe and Australia and received responses from 140 institutions – an increase of over 100 per cent on the previous year.
“We are thrilled with the uptake and response to this year’s survey. The increase in the number of business schools participating, and the inclusion of some very well-known and highly regarded players within the market, serve to further establish the CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings as a go-to reference tool for future MBA students,” says CEO Magazine’s Group Editor-in-Chief, Alexandra Skinner.
The CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings are designed with applicants in mind, and examine the nuts and bolts of an MBA: the learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity, gender make-up and more. The objective is simple: to identify schools which marry exceptional quality with great ROI.
This sentiment has also been echoed by those charged with leading business schools. Alon Rozen, Dean of the École des Ponts Business School in Paris, home to triple-accredited MBA and EMBA programmes, says of the rankings “CEO Magazine has created something innovative, valuable and fresh in academia – a ranking system that values sense over cents. Instead of using quantity (i.e. faculty, student, endowment and salary sizes) as a proxy for quality – like many rankings now do – CEO Magazine has created a ranking that provides real insight, that looks beyond the veneer of marketing into the character of content, and that measures the key elements that truly define quality education today. With all of the changes in education in recent years, a new approach to ranking was definitely in order, and CEO Magazine has now jumped ahead of the competition in this respect. A sigh of relief for prospects and employers looking for a better way to identify the best programmes the world has to offer.”
