New FT ranking: BI among the 95 best

11 September 2017

BI Norwegian Business School’s MSc in Business programme ranks 77 on the Financial Times’ global ranking of the 95 best Masters in Management programmes 2017.

– We are pleased to retain our position in the Financial Times’ ranking, particularly as this year’s list features the 95 best Masters in Management, an expansion from the 90 programmes listed last year. It is imperative to see the list in a larger context where the school’s academic quality is also measured against accreditation standards, says president of BI, Inge Jan Henjesand.

In 2016, BI’s MSc in Business ranked 71 of a total of 90 programmes. Among the criteria assessed were the graduate`s salary and career development, as well as international experience while studying. The ranking also examines the proportion of women and foreigners on the board, among faculty and the student body.

– BI has a clear ambition to climb in the Financial Times ranking. This is important because it will enhance our ability to attract the best faculty and the best students on the international arena, which in turn makes us a more attractive partner for business and industry and other educational institutions in an increasingly globalized world, says Henjesand.

About the ranking:

The Financial Times conducts five different programme rankings every year – including Masters in Management. The ranking of Masters in Management Studies (BI`s MSc in Business) is based on the graduate’s salary and career development, international experience during the programme and the proportion of women and foreigners on the board, among faculty and the student body.
