Ranked #9 in Europe, #16 in the world

QS Top MBA, the leading global provider of specialist higher education and careers information and solutions, released this week the 2013-14 Global 200 Business Schools Report. This annual report differs from traditional rankings as the objective is to provide an indication of the employability of an MBA upon graduation. Rankings are determined solely by employers’ views and perceptions of MBA programmes, taking into account course content, quality of students and the reputation of the school. Based on information from over 4,318 employers who actively recruit MBA graduates, a list of the top 200 business schools is compiled.
