Aalto University School of Business advanced six places to 45th in the Financial Times Masters in Management 2017 ranking published on 11 September. The annual ranking measures, for example, the career and salary development of graduates from the business schools, the achievement of individual goals by the participants and the degree of internationalisation of the programmes.

There are about 14 000 business schools in the world of which only the 95 best were included in this year’s Financial Times ranking. The ranking is based on evaluations and information given by graduates and statistical data produced by the schools. Alumni who graduated from the masters programme three years earlier participate in the ranking.

The School of Business did particularly well in terms of the alumnis’ salary level and development. The depth of the international experience gained by students during their studies was another area where Aalto University did very well.

‘We are very pleased that our position improved once again. We are committed to continuously developing our teaching and aim to provide our students with the best possible starting point for their careers. International experience is also an important factor and this academic year 2017-2018 we have 436 students going on exchange to 38 different countries, which is our largest number ever’, says Dean Ingmar Björkman.

In this year’s Financial Times ranking, the best Masters in Management programme was University of St Gallen. In 9th place was the international CEMS Master’s in International Management offered by 30 business schools including Aalto University School of Business in Finland.
