Master’s programme at the School of Business moves up in The FT ranking

The master’s programme was placed 51st in the Financial Times ranking.
The annual ranking measures among other things the career and salary development of graduates from the business schools.

The school moved up three places from last year's ranking. There are about 14,000 business schools in the world, and only the best 90 master’s programmes participated in The Financial Times ranking.  

The annual ranking measures among other things the career and salary development of graduates from the business schools, the achievement of personal goals by the participants and the internationality of the programmes. The ranking is based on evaluations and information given by students, and statistical data produced by the schools. People who graduated from the master’s programme three years earlier respond in the ranking.

The alumni rated the Aalto University School of Business as good regarding achieved aims. Aalto University’s position is also improved by the international experience gained by students during their studies. The salary development among alumni was particularly positive in this year’s ranking.

‘I am glad that international experience is valued because we have invested in it. We offer our students international work experience as part of their studies, and international student exchanges with over 150 top universities in 43 countries. It is also great that we were able to improve our position, although 10 new programmes participated.’ says Ingmar Björkman, Dean of the School of Business.

The two best higher education institutions in the FT ranking were the University of St Gallen in Switzerland and HEC Paris in France.

The Financial Times Master’s in Management ranking 2016 was published on 12 September 2016.
