To the top: Prof Walter Baets: "It testifies to the high quality of our programmes, the remarkable impact we have on students and the exceptional quality of our MBA in particular."
The Graduate School of Business' (GSB) full-time MBA programme has moved up 29 places to 60th place in the latest Financial Times (FT) of London's Global MBA Top 100 Ranking, released on Monday, 31 January.
The GSB degree is also ranked as the best-value-for-money MBA in the world today.
The GSB remains the only business school in Africa in the FT MBA Top 100, and this is the seventh consecutive year that the school has featured in the rankings.
In addition to being the number one MBA for value for money, there are other notable achievements in 2011. The GSB was ranked seventh in the International Experience category, and inside the Top 35 in seven other assessment categories. This included placing 31st in the Career Progress rank, 31st in the International Faculty rank, and 28th in the International Mobility rank.
An evaluation of the 2011 rankings table shows that the GSB again ranks among the top five business schools based in BRICS emergent market countries - Brazil, Russia, India and China and South Africa.
"It testifies to the high quality of our programmes, the remarkable impact we have on students and the exceptional quality of our MBA in particular," said Professor Walter Baets, GSB director, of the new rankings.
The FT ranking shows that GSB MBA graduates are doing well for themselves across the globe, seen in the three strong rankings in International Experience, International Mobility and Career Progress.
"These three categories confirm that our graduates go on to achieve great things wherever they go and are highly valued in the international market," said Baets.
In dollar-weighted terms, GSB alumni are also earning at the top of the table (position 16) just behind top-ranked London Business School and ahead of graduates from the likes of New York University, UCLA, Oxford and Cambridge.
At the top of the 2011 FT rankings is London Business School, but Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania has moved up one spot and now holds the number one ranking with London Business School. Harvard Business School has retained its third place and Stanford University GSB and INSEAD jointly hold fourth place.
