The ranking of the best MBAs in the world 2022 according to the FT

The US media, The Financial Times, has revealed its 2022 ranking of the best MBAs in the world and unsurprisingly, US business schools are in effect. This year, a French school regains its precious place on the podium. Zoom in on the 100 best MBAs in the world without further ado.

The 2022 Financial Times ranking lists the 100 best full-time MBAs in the world. A total of 151 business schools participated in the 2022 edition. All participating schools met the FT eligibility criteria and are EQUIS or AACSB accredited.

Andrew Crisp, director of education consultancy CarringtonCrisp, emphasized that business schools will continue to evolve as new digital training tools develop. “International, entrepreneurship, technology, sustainability are the keywords and trending words of recent times. It is imperative that the MBA adapt to the changing world. If he doesn’t, he’ll be in a very difficult position. »

Methodology of the 2022 MBA Ranking According to the FT

To achieve the ranking, the Financial Times contacts former students three years after completing their MBA. For a school to appear on the list, the FT requires a response rate of at least 20% of graduates, with at least 20 completed questionnaires.

This year, due to disruption due to the Covid-19 crisis, the FT looked at schools with a lower response rate than last year. In 2018, a total of 7,138 graduates responded to the survey, a response rate of 34%. This contributed 61% to the establishment’s overall score. Data collected from schools accounts for 21%. The research criterion (which corresponds to the number of articles published in some fifty high-level scientific journals) counts for 10%.

For some criteria, the FT smoothes the results. So, regarding payouts, the media erases the highest and lowest pay from the data. Likewise, the ranking does not take into account the amount earned by those who work for NGOs, in the public sector or students full time.
