International Business School Climbs in Ranking of MBA Programs

July 1, 2007

Brandeis International Business School (IBS) has risen dramatically in the Economist Intelligence Unit's ranking of the world's top 100 full-time MBA programs. IBS was ranked 60 worldwide, having entered the rankings for the first time last year at 87. This now places IBS 31st among business schools in the United States. Further, it demonstrates the continued progress the School has achieved in delivering a business education that can be compared with the best in the world.

With its strong global focus, IBS received particularly high marks for its student diversity as well as for the increase in salary achieved after graduation. IBS offers outstanding opportunities for students seeking to develop a career in the arena of international business, economics and finance.

The ranking clearly demonstrates that the International Business School has made swift progress since its founding twelve years ago in building a business education that can be compared with the best in the world.

With a curriculum focused on the global economy and a community drawn from over 60 countries worldwide, the School offers outstanding opportunities for students to develop a career in the arena of international business.

The Economist Intelligence Unit's ranking, which is based on feedback from close to 20,000 MBA students and graduates as well as data provided by schools, takes as its criteria four key reasons for doing an MBA:

  • opening new career opportunities and/or furthering current career;
  • personal development and educational experience;
  • increasing one's salary; and
  • the potential for networking.

The EIU ranks full-time MBA programmes on their ability to deliver these elements to students. It weights each element according to the average importance given to it by students surveyed over the past five years.
