FT European Business School Ranking 2010

9 Dec

On 6 December 2010, the Financial Times published the results of the ranking of European business universities. For the first time, the University of Economics, Prague (VŠE) figured into the rankings, in the 73rd position, among the most prestigious schools.

The Financial Times describes the evaluation as the “ranking of rankings” because it takes into consideration the results of four various rankings of managerial programs (so-called full-time and executive MBA, life-long learning programs, and follow-up Master’s programs). The daily has published a ranking of the 75 best European universities in total.

The first position is occupied by French HEC Paris, the London Business School scored in second position, and in third is Insead – an international school located in Paris. Most prominent in the ranking have been schools from countries where teaching of management has a long tradition, i.e. universities from Great Britain (21), France (18), and Germany (5). Among the countries from Central and Eastern Europe, only two schools from Poland and the University of Economics, Prague have succeeded. The fact that VŠE has agreements on cooperation with 27 schools from the ranking highlights the quality of the student exchange program of the university.

VŠE has scored in the ranking particularly thanks to the success in the ranking of follow-up Master’s study programs of the Faculty of Business Administration. The study program “Business Economy and Management” gained in September 2010 the 58th position, and the international common program of 26 universities the CEMS Masters in International Management (CEMS MIM), which is part of the Master’s study program of the Faculty of Business Administration “International Management”, won 2nd position in the world.
