Master in Management Ranking 2017

Published: 12 September 2017 | by Thomas Graf

The new Financial Times Master in Management Ranking was published on September 10, 2017. The first two ranks go to the University of St.Gallen and the HEC School of Management again, just like last year. IE Business School climbed to position 3 (from 7) and the London Business School reached position 4 (coming from 6). After being not included in the ranking in 2016, the CEMS Master in International Management entered again and reached position 9.

The Master in Management Ranking Methodology

Schools must either have an AACSB or EQUIS accreditation to become included in the Financial Times MIM Ranking. Also, their full-time MIM programs must have 30 graduates per year at minimum and effectively be general management programs (and not specialized business masters).

Feedback for the ranking is provided by Master in Management alumni and school representatives. Alumni feedback counts more (58%) for the final rank, however, even though they encompass only 7 out of 17 criteria.

In 2017, the Financial Times also includes salary increase as a ranking criterion (10%) whereas the average salary of MIM alumni is weighed at 20 percent as last year.
