2020 Global MBA Rankings Now Live

Career Climbers, MBA Blog / 9th March 2020

CEO Magazine has been showcasing top business schools from around the globe since it first launched in 2008. In 2012 the publication launched its annual Global MBA Rankings, profiling MBA, Executive MBA and Online MBA programmes. This year CEO Magazine reached out to business schools across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the BRICS, and received data from 161 schools, offering 303 different programmes in 27 countries (77 online, 87 EMBA and 139 full-time and part-time MBA programmes).
This represents not only the largest number of schools that have participated to date, but also the highest number of individual programmes.

Using a ranking system entirely geared and weighted towards fact-based criteria, CEO Magazine aims to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review.
