A Ranking of European Business Schools

 

Can’t get enough business school rankings? Well, you’re in luck.

This week, The Financial Times published their annual rankings of European business schools. For the first time, there’s a tie! That’s right: HEC Paris and the IE Business School share the honors, with HEC Paris reclaiming a share of the top spot it lost last year. And HEC Paris and IE Business School did this despite their career services and placement being ranked 80th and 90th, respectively.

Of course, there was little movement in this year’s top 10, with only ESCP Europe tumbling out, falling one spot to 11. They were replaced by SDA Bocconi, which jumped from 11 to 8. The biggest leap in the Top 20 belongs to France’s Edhec Business School, which rose from 25 to 17. Conversely, the UK’s Cranfield School of Management dropped from 16 to 19 in the top 20, while Switzerland’s IMD fell from 7 to 9 in the top 10.

According to The Financial Times, this ranking is different in that it “ranks business schools rather than their programmes. The tables are based on the indexed scores achieved by schools taking part in the 2013 FT MBA, executive MBA, masters in management, and open and custom executive education rankings.” While schools with a larger number of programs have a built-in advantage in the rankings, The Financial Times noted that “only schools that did consistently well across the rankings make the top 20.”

So without further adieu, here are the top 10 European business schools according to The Financial Times:

1) HEC Paris (France)

1) IE Business School (Spain)

3) London Business School (United Kingdom)

3) Esade Business School (Spain)

5) Insead (France)

6) Iese Business School (Spain)

7) University of St. Galen (Switzerland)

8) SDA Bocconi (Italy)

9) IMD (Switzerland)

10) Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

The Financial Times also measured the highest salaries after three years of graduation. According to their data, “Graduates from Germany dominate masters in management programmes with an average salary of $70,000, closely followed by Spain at $69,000 and Switzerland on $65,000. French MBA graduates perform best with an average salary of $145,000, mostly thanks to Insead’s programme, followed by Spain on $144,000. Finally, Spain’s EMBA graduates come top with an average salary of $174,000, and the UK’s alumni second on $170,000.”
