The FINANCIAL — London Business School has been awarded the number one spot in Bloomberg Businessweek's biennial ranking of top international business schools, above INSEAD and IE Business School.
This is the first time the School has taken the number one position in the 24-year-old ranking, which includes 82 schools globally. As London Business School reported, the School scored particularly highly for its career services, calibre of candidates and teaching quality.
Professor Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean, London Business School, said: “Rankings are a great way of identifying what we do well and areas for improvement. We have fantastic students from all over the world and we’re constantly striving to deliver the best programme we possibly can for them. It’s great to see that what we’re doing is making a difference.”Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking methodology includes student surveys, employer surveys, and intellectual capital measure. The 2012 rank is based on the ranking index, which represents the weighted total of all three elements.
