The Financial Times ranking for business schools is one of the most highly acknowledged and widely cited authority on quality and performance of institutions globally.

Schools must meet strict criteria in order to be eligible. These include the type of programme, volume of graduates and accreditation from AACSB or EQUIS.

The rankings are based on a collection of data sourced from two separate surveys. The first from participating universities and the second from alumni who graduated from the university in 2016.

An important measure that informs the ranking is the current average salary, and salary increase between alumnus’ first Masters-level graduate job and their current salary. International course experience and international mobility are two other significant criteria.

The Business Schools position in the ranking is a clear demonstration of the high-quality teaching and learning standards that are among some of the very best internationally.

Dr Alex Hiller, Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes at NBS commented on the achievement: “NBS has a long-standing and successful MSc Management programme and we are delighted to be included in the FT’s Top 100 Global Master’s in Management ranking for the third year.

“Our inclusion in this elite group recognises our commitment to developing our graduates’ career prospects and international exposure and promoting equality and diversity across the programme and wider school.”

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI)-accredited MSc Management programme enables students to gain an outstanding understanding of core subjects allowing them to put theory and contemporary thinking in to practice.
