The master’s programme in International Business at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) is one of the top 25 business programmes in the world according to the
ranking 2010. The Financial Times ranks the top 65 universities offering Master in Management programmes. SBE secured the 25th place, up from last year’s 29th. In terms of ‘Value for Money’, SBE was ranked an impressive second.
The FT ranking is based on information provided by alumni from the MSc International Business programme about their career, employers and salary. Furthermore, the School submitted data on the international character of the student body and employees, the international mobility of its students, language of instruction and other related issues.
SBE scored particularly well in the following criteria:
– Value for money: 2nd place (the rank is calculated using alumni salaries three years after graduation and course costs, the length of the course is also taken into consideration)
– Women in advisory board: 7th place
– International faculty staff: 14th place
– International students: 18th place
– International mobility: 19th place (the rank is based on changes in the country of employment of alumni between graduation and today)
Furthermore, the School continues to develop a strong international network, as envisioned in its Strategic Plan 2009-2013. Four SBE partner universities are ranked in this year’s top 10: ESCP Europe (#1), Universität St. Gallen (#4), EM Lyon Business School (shared #5) and Grenoble Graduate School of Business (shared #5).
