QS Global 200 Business Schools Report

The annual report of the world’s top 200 business schools according to MBA employers came out Monday on www.topmba.com. The QS Global 200 Business Schools Report provides an alternative to traditional MBA rankings by highlighting the value of MBA programs around the world according to the qualification’s end consumer—the MBA employer. Over 2,000 responses were received from 42 countries, making this the largest survey of its kind.

MBA employers were asked to identify the business schools from which they prefer to recruit. Respondents also identified business schools they deem to produce excellent hires in ten areas of elective specialization: finance; strategy; marketing; entrepreneurship; corporate social responsibility; information management; innovation and international management.

If you’re considering pursuing an MBA, the QS Global 200 Business Schools Report can help in your research process by identifying which business schools are meeting the needs of international employers and revealing some of the newer programs that are gaining in reputation.
