2011 MBA Rankings

RANKINGS NEWS: Brandeis IBS continues to be ranked among top business schools worldwide

School applauded for global focus and strong faculty
October 17, 2011

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

The school has been named to The Economist’s list of the top 100 full-time MBA programs in the world, and was also included in The Princeton Review’s 2012 edition of "The Best 294 Business Schools.”

Brandeis IBS has earned a spot in The Economist’s rankings six years in a row, and in The Princeton Review’s rankings for four consecutive years.
The school has now had its MBA, Lemberg MA and PhD programs ranked among the best in the world, while its MSF program has also received high marks in a Financial Times profile. 

Within more specific categories, The Economist ranked Brandeis IBS #5 in the world for its education experience, and #25 for its diversity. Its MBA program was also ranked #50 in the country.

The Princeton Review entry states that the school is "renowned for its [global focus]” and that students "are full of praise for their professors."

Dean Bruce R. Magid described the rankings as a reaffirmation of Brandeis International Business School's strong academic reputation.

"This news from The Economist and The Princeton Review, on top of our Lemberg MA program’s #1 U.S. ranking in the Financial Times, reinforces our position as a leading globally-focused business school," Magid said. "The fact that students have such positive things to say about us is a credit to the hard work of our faculty, staff and alumni, as well as the support of the Brandeis community."

The Princeton Review’s rankings are based on school-provided data and surveys completed by approximately 19,000 business students around the globe. The Economist, similarly, bases its rankings on feedback from nearly 19,000 MBA students and graduates, as well as information provided by the institutions themselves.
