HEC, ESCP, Essec and EM Lyon in the world top 10

More than 20% of the best management master’s degrees in the world are offered by business schools of French origin, the British economic newspaper underlines. “European business schools are among the best masters in management in the world and among them, French schools offer four programs that are the 11 best in the world”, notes Andrew Jack, education editor at Financial times.

The master in management at HEC Paris (PGE) is therefore in second place of the best program in the world, without dethroning that of the University of Saint Gallen, in Switzerland, which monopolizes first place for the twelfth consecutive year.

ESCP raises its flagship diploma to fifth in the world (+2 places), passing Essec in 6th place. To note, the spectacular “turnout” of the EM Lyon Grande Ecole program that takes 12 places compared to the 2021 edition and joined the top 10 (9th) in the 2022 edition. It is ahead of Edhec, who lost three places and left the top 10.
