It is a composite position centered on the mixed overall performance of Europe’s top universities across the 5 major rankings of programmes revealed by the FT in 2021: MBA, Government MBA, Masters in Management (MiM) and in 2020 for the two rankings of non-diploma government instruction programmes as we did not run the Custom made and Open up rankings this yr. The On the net MBA and Masters in Finance rankings are not bundled.

MBA, EMBA and MiM account for 25 for each cent every of every school’s total overall performance. For Government Education, the scores attained for customised and open up programmes every account for 12.5 for each cent. Schools must have a minimal total weight of 25 out of a attainable a hundred for all 5 rankings to be suitable.
