Financial Times M.B.A. Ranking 2010
The Financial Times’ M.B.A. rankings, introduced in 1999, were the first major rankings to treat M.B.A. education as a global marketplace, with American schools ranked directly against those from the rest of the world. The rankings measure such factors as the employment rate, salaries and career progress of graduates; the opinions of alumni; the diversity (international and female) of students and faculty; as well as faculty quality.
