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.
