BI and NHH are ranked 36th and 39th in the Financial Times’ ranking of 95 European schools.
Stockholm School of Economics is the best of the Nordic, in 26th place. Copenhagen business school is in 27th place while Aalto University in Finland is 34th in the prestigious European Business School ranking 2019.
BI is nevertheless very pleased to climb a place from last year to 36th place among the 95 who are on the list.
“This is one of the most rewarding rankings throughout the year since it shows the quality and breadth of our programmes,” said Inge Jan Henjesand, BI Norwegian Business School’s principal.
The school ranking is a weighted compilation of five programme rankings Financial Times publishes throughout the year: the MBA, Executive MBA, Master in Management (MIM), in-house programmes and short-term continuing education programmes.
All the partial rankings are calculated on the basis of a number of different indicators with salary and salary growth of former students as the most important criteria. This is in addition to career development, the number of doctoral students, the proportion of women in the board and professional staff as well as the degree of internationalization in the organization and among the students.
This is the 16th school ranking from the Financial Times. At the top of the list is French HEC Paris followed by the British London Business School and Italian SDA Bocconi.
