QS World University Tops: Business Masters Tops 2018 - Out Now! main image

Released today, the QS World University Tops: Business Masters Tops 2018 compare the top business master’s degrees in management, finance and business analytics. These specialized master’s programs have become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly among entrepreneurial and business-minded students who are looking to develop their skills by gaining a second degree, and these rankings should prove to be a vital tool for anyone choosing between different business schools or study programs.

These rankings have been compiled by measuring university and business school programs against five metrics: employability, entrepreneurship & alumni outcomes, return on investment, thought leadership and diversity. There are slight variations in the weightings between the different rankings. More information about this can be found here.

HEC Paris ranked top for management

Leading the way in the inaugural ranking of management programs is HEC Paris for its Master of Science in Strategic Management. One of 17 French institutions featured in this ranking, HEC Paris scored a perfect 100 in two of the five indicators: employability and entrepreneurship & alumni outcomes.

The rest of the top 10 can be seen below. Other notable aspects are the dominance of European countries (CEMS is the only one not based solely in Europe; it’s spread across 30 cities around the world) and the column outlining which master’s program the school or university has been ranked for.

MIT lead the way in the world’s first-ever business analytics ranking

Business analytics is a fairly new master’s program compared to management or finance, to the point where this ranking is the first time anyone anywhere in the world has ever compared business analytics programs. The Sloan Graduate School of Management at MIT has the honor of topping this world-first, with three other US institutions close behind.

Given the limited pool of business analytics programs available currently, only 45 have been ranked this year, from 10 different countries.
