THOUGHT LEADERS

The 50 best MBA programmes in the world

Higher- and business-education specialists QS Quacquarelli Symonds has released its 2019 Global MBA Ranking, evaluating 251 of the best business schools in the world.

QS ranked programmes on employability for graduates, entrepreneurship and alumni outcomes, students’ return on investment as measured by post-graduation increases in salary, academic thought leadership, and class and faculty diversity.

QS based its rankings on three surveys: One survey of global employers to ascertain the reputation of MBA programmes among top firms, one survey of academics to get a sense of schools’ academic and thought leadership reputations, and a survey of the business schools themselves to gather basic information on programs and student outcomes. See the full list of 251 business schools on TopMBA.com – The University of Stellenbosch and the University of Cape Town also feature on the list. Here are the top 50 global MBA programmes, according to QS rankings
