FT Masters in Management 2017 Ranking Methodology

FT  laid down the strict criteria for Schools to be eligible for evaluation. The schools must be either AACSB or Equis accredited and their programmes must be full-time, cohort-based and have a minimum of 30 graduates each year.

The rankings are calculated according to information collected through two separate surveys, the first completed by the business schools and the second by alumni who graduated in 2014.

Meanwhile, FT has changed its methodology and started collecting information about alumni’s first jobs after graduation. These data are used in conjunction with information about their current jobs, three years later. It enables FT to calculate their salary increase since graduation as well as their career progress, which is based on changes in alumni’s level of seniority and the size of the company they work for between graduation and three years after graduation.

The first placed St Gallen notched up good scores in the international criteria with more than 90% of the students and 80% of the faculty coming from other countries. It is ranked second for international exposure and mobility of the students during the program.

Meanwhile, alumni from the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad managed to draw the highest salary of $116,476 followed by IIM Bangalore at $116,094 with Gallen on the third spot in the category at $114,449.
