Financial Times 2020: the MBS Grande Ecole Program ranks 61st among the world's best Masters in Management
An increasingly selective ranking
The Financial Times has just published its 2020 world rankings of the best Masters in Management, which is the international reference for Business Schools. This year again, the selection has been strengthened. Only the 90 best schools in the world managed to be ranked, compared to 100 in 2019. The French market is no exception to this increased selection. Only 21 French schools and universities appear in the ranking this year, compared to 25 last year.
“The methodology of this ranking is based mainly on the answers of alumni commutities, and in particular on three indicators related to remuneration, which correspond to 35% of the rating: salary, salary progression and return on investment. This methodology creates small differences between schools and allows for great mobility in the ranking from year to year. “explains Bruno Ducasse, Dean of MBS. In this sense, 20 schools have disappeared from the ranking this year.
MBS ranks 6th in France in terms of the employability of its graduates.
While MBS ranks 61st overall, it is on the key employability characteristic of its graduates that it is widening the gap. “We have an employability rate of 96%, mainly due to the professionalizing and inclusive lever of apprenticeship programs. This year, thanks to this good performance, we are ranked 6th in France and 24th in the world on this criterion. ” said Bruno Ducasse.
“The strong performance on employability proves the international recognition of MBS’ ambition, renewed during the presentation of its new brand platform: to embody the power of inclusion,” says André Deljarry, President of Montpellier Business School. MBS also ranks 6th in France (and 18th in the world) for the internationalization of its faculty.
Other indicators that are on the rise among MBS graduates are the average salary increasing by $1,000 and the “aims achieved”, which evaluates the extent to which graduates have managed to meet the expectations that motivated them to continue their Master’s studies at MBS.
