The financial magazine Financial Times has published its ranking of the best European business schools for an MBA. The first classified is Insead (Institut Européen d’Administration des Affaires) (France); followed by the London Business School and Cambridge Judge Business School.
Although Spanish schools remain among the top 10, both IE Business School (which occupies the 4th position) and IESE (7th) and ESADE (8th), descend positions with respect to the 2015 classification. The criteria used to prepare the ranking are the average salary of the graduates, the salary increase that takes place in the following three years at the end of the MBA or the occupation rate of the graduates.
The Master in Business Administration (MBA) are programs offered by business schools that specialize their students in management and administration of companies and / or economic and administrative issues. The objective of this type of training is to train students to be a business manager, developing skills such as leadership skills, management, team motivation, verbal and written communication, etc.
In addition to analyzing business schools, the Financial Times also produces a ranking with the best full-time MBA, where the state centers have lost positions. IESE, loses nine positions in this ranking, going from the seventh to the sixteenth place; IE Business School remains in 12th place and ESADE occupies the 23rd position, down 4 positions. The decrease is explained by the drop in the average salary received by their students once they finish their training.
