MBA named #1 by Forbes

We’re delighted to announce that our MBA has once again been named the world’s best two-year international MBA by ForbesThe School has proudly retained its No.1 position and taken the top spot in the last six surveys. This is a testament to the evolution of the programme and how it has progressed to ensure students have access to the very best learning experiences and graduate outcomes.

Gareth Howells, Executive Director of the School’s MBA programme, said: “The LBS MBA continues to offer students a strong return on their investment. Our graduates leave us with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in business. This latest result reflects not only this exceptional learning experience, but the significant value employers place on it.”

The business publication’s biennial ranking of MBA programmes measures graduates’ return on investment (ROI) by calculating their “five-year MBA gain”. The metric reflects total earnings across five years post-graduation – minus the cost of fees, tuition and forgone compensation – versus expected earnings without an MBA.

LBS’s “five-year MBA gain” is $US 93,100, according to Forbes. The figure represents the highest ROI among two-year international MBA programmes.
