This year’s Financial Times’ annual Global MBA Ranking, widely regarded as the most prestigious of its kind, was made public on 8 February 2021. The ranking shows that the Copenhagen MBA is featured among the best 100 global programmes.

“Making it into the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking is a notable achievement,” said Poul Hedegaard, CBS MBA Director. “The Full-time MBA market is highly competitive and this ranking plays a part when prospective students start their research and compare programmes. We are pleased to yet again be featured among the top 100 business schools globally.”

The ranking evaluates programmes based on three broad areas: Career Progress, Diversity and Research/CSR. The latter lies at the heart of the Copenhagen MBA learning experience and the programme holds an impressive global rank of 31 in this sub-category. Professor Andreas Rasche, Associate Dean for the programme, is flying the flag for sustainable business practices in the classroom.

“There is no better place than Copenhagen Business School to learn about sustainable business practices,” he said. “This has been a priority research area of ours for many years, and we possess cutting-edge insights into  how CSR and sustainability are incorporated into organisations operating at the forefront of this field. Students learn through guest lecturers, fieldtrips and cases as well as through participating in animated discussions and leave ready to make a difference in any organisation, big or small.”

When it comes to career progress, the Copenhagen MBA ranks 44 globally. 85% of alumni reported that their goals or reason for doing an MBA had been fulfilled.

“Through the course ‘Managing your Career’, we aim to equip students with the skills needed to create a post-MBA career that ticks their desired boxes,” commented Claire Hewitson, Head of CBS MBA Career Services. “We also expose them to opportunities such as professional breakfast with alumni, arrange corporate visits and pair them up with a career mentor in their desired field. It is fantastic to see these efforts paying off.”

The Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2021 used employment stats from alumni that graduated in 2019 and survey responses from the class that graduated in 2017. The Copenhagen MBA’s overall rank is 98. To see the full ranking, please click here to visit the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2021.
