Brandeis IBS ranked among world's top schools in Economist, Princeton Review

This week Brandeis International Business School (IBS) and its MBA program were ranked among the best in the world by two of the most highly-regarded international rankings publications.

Princeton Review ranked IBS No. 3 among nearly 700 U.S. business schools in the category of “Greatest Opportunities for Women” in its 2014 business-school rankings. The school has also been named to The Economist’s list of the top 100 full-time MBA programs in the world.

The Economist ranked the MBA program No. 10 in the world for its education experience, 12 for its gender diversity, and 23 for its geographic diversity. The program was also ranked No. 53 in the country.

Brandeis IBS has now had all three of its full-time programs ranked among the best in the world. See the full breakdown.

In its Princeton Review entry, the school is praised for its globally-focused curriculum and faculty who are “well-respected in their fields” and “always available to provide further guidance.”

Forty percent of the school’s MBA students are women, representing 11 percent more than the average business school accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The Brandeis IBS faculty is 43 percent female, as compared to the national average of 30 percent.

Dean Bruce R. Magid described the rankings as a reaffirmation of the school’s strong academic reputation and multicultural student-centered environment.

“We aim to provide students with a rigorous education built on a strong foundation in business, economics and finance," Magid said. “These rankings, on top of our MA ranking in the Financial Times, indicate that we have succeeded as a community in making Brandeis IBS a welcoming place that promotes diversity and inclusiveness.”

Both the Economist and the Princeton Review’s rankings are based on school-provided data and surveys completed by approximately 20,000 business students around the globe.
