LBS enjoys Forbes and Financial Times rankings success
Autumn is the season of rankings results and LBS has made a strong start with success for both our MBA and Masters in Management (MiM) programmes.
MBA tops Forbes' ranking for the fifth consecutive time
This week our MBA has been ranked the world’s best by Forbes for the fifth consecutive year, offering graduates unparalleled return on the investment of studying.
Forbes’ 10th biennial ranking of business schools is based on the return on investment made by graduates from the MBA class of 2012. Our alumni from that class realised a five-year gain of US$119,100 (£88,387), the highest of any two-year programme in the world, and it took the typical graduate just 3.4 years to pay back their investment.
“Going to business school represents one of the most significant professional, personal and financial investments that one can make,” said Gareth Howells, Executive Director of the MBA programme.
“That investment is for the long-term, rather than just about the role upon graduation. We are thrilled that the Forbes ranking recognises the career impact that the LBS MBA has on individuals’ careers.”
MiM achieves top score for international mobility from Financial Times
Earlier in September our Masters In Management (MiM) was ranked fourth in the Financial Times ranking- moving up from sixth and retaining our place as the number one UK school.
We achieved high scores in a number of areas including 'aims achieved', with 92 per cent of alumni satisfied. We also placed first for international mobility and the international mix of our student body, with international students accounting for 97 per cent of the MiM class.
We are extremely pleased with the result which is a demonstration of the quality of the programme, and we look forward the exciting enhancements bought about by the recent MiM review which will further showcase the strength and potential of our MiM students.
