QS World University: Business Masters Ranking 2018

6 Dec

The QS company has been evaluating the best universities in the world for the past 25 years. This year, for the first time, QS has conducted a specialised business ranking of master’s degree programmes, ‘Business Masters Ranking’ in Finance, Management and Business Analytics. VŠE has succeeded in two categories.

For the year 2018, QS published an evaluation of 122 master’s programmes in management and 131 programmes in finance. The exact rank is shown for the first hundred. The CEMS programme, which is implemented at the University of Economics, Prague at the Faculty of Business Administration (deadline for applications for International Management is February 28th, 2018), has achieved 8th place in ranking for management. Other VŠE programmes are in the 100+ category. The representation of Central and Eastern European countries is minimal, while the traditional business schools from Western countries are more successful.
