Bloomberg Businessweek ranks CBS Full-time MBA among the 30 best international MBA programmes

Bloomberg Businessweek released its 2017 ranking of the best international MBA programmes, placing the Full-time MBA in the top 30 globally. This is the third time that the Fulll-time MBA features in the prestigious ranking, which focuses on how well the programmes prepare graduates for job success, based on feedback from employers and alumni.

Employer feedback is collected from the employer survey (35% of total score), in which more than 600 recruiters have named the programmes that best deliver the skills they seek in MBA hires. The alumni survey (30%) asks alumni who graduated from 2009 to 2011 how the MBA has affected their careers, their compensation over time and their job satisfaction.

Three  other components feed into the Bloomberg Businessweek ranking: the student survey (15%), in which current students are asked to rate their programs; job placement rate (10%), or how many MBAs seeking fullā€time jobs get them within three months of graduating, and finally starting salary (10%), or how much new MBAs make in their new jobs.

The Full-time MBA performed best this year in the categories Student Feedback and Post-MBA Salary with a rank of 24 and 25 respectively.

“Overall, it’s a great credit to the Full.time MBA to be included in this select group of business schools, and we are of course very happy to see that our students express satisfaction with their MBA experience,” says MBA Director, Poul Hedegaard.

“We are also pleased to get the feedback from employers that our graduates are equipped with the skills and competences needed to tackle the challenges in today’s global business world and bring value to their companies.”
