The FINANCIAL — The CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings are designed with applicants in mind, and examine the nuts and bolts of an MBA: the learning environment, class sizes, professional development, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity, gender make-up and more. The objective is simple: to identify schools which marry exceptional quality with great ROI.
CEO Magazine’s Group Editor-in-Chief, Alexandra Skinner, said: “We are thrilled with the uptake and response to this year’s survey. The increase in the number of business schools participating, and the inclusion of some very well-known and highly regarded players within the market, serve to further establish the CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings as a go-to reference tool for future MBA students.”
This sentiment is echoed by those charged with leading business schools. Professor George Feiger, Dean of the triple-accredited Aston Business School, says of the rankings: “CEO Magazine has created a ranking that measures the things that should truly make a difference to MBA students and graduates – the learning environment, professional development, delivery and international diversity. These are all things that Aston particularly prides itself on getting right as we strive to provide an intellectually enriching and commercially rewarding MBA experience to our students. These rankings are a valuable input for prospective students seeking to identify the best programmes the world has to offer.”
The Aston MBA is also ranked 38th in Europe according to the QS Global 200 Business Schools report, where Schools are ranked on the basis of the employability of MBA graduates. The data is taken from 5,669 actively hiring international MBA recruiters and 7,187 academics, according to Aston University.
