The Economist ranks the Full-time MBA among top 30 globally for student diversity

The Economist has placed the Full-time MBA among the top 30 Full-time MBA programmes in the world when it comes to student diversity. The programme’s rank in this category is based on the spread of regions from which students hail, gender diversity and students’ own rating of culture and classmates.

“We are delighted to see that we perform so well in the student diversity category,” said Gitte Kramhøft, Programme Manager for the Full-time MBA. “We have a strong emphasis on teamwork and collaboration in the Full-time MBA in order to promote an inclusive culture in the classroom and beyond. Respect, equality and positive recognition of differences are all important elements of the MBA experience and part of our core pillar theme, Responsible Management.”

The ranking, published on 25 October 2018, evaluates programmes in four main categories: new career opportunities, personal development/educational experience, salary and potential to network. It takes into account data reported from the school as well as survey responses from current students and recent graduates. Overall, the Full-time MBA ranks #89. Compared to the last Economist ranking, the Full-time MBA has made a significant leap when it comes to personal development/educational experience, climbing 37 places.

Andreas Rasche is the newly appointed Dean for the Full-time MBA and teaches Managing Responsible Corporations to the students.

“Ours is an MBA with a heart and we want this notion to permeate the entire programme, from our personal admissions approach to the experience that each individual has in the classroom,” he said. “The Full-time MBA is relatively small on a global scale, which means that each student benefits from lots of one-on-one time with us, the faculty. We incorporate personal experiences and different perspectives in classroom discussions which greatly enhances learning.”

The surveyed class graduated in 2018 and featured 44 enrolled students,18 women and 22 different nationalities. Recent graduates of the programme are also surveyed, and together these responses make up 20% percent of the total ranking weight. Click here to visit The Economist Which MBA? 2018 Full-time MBA Ranking and learn more about how the Full-time MBA performed in each category.
