Regardless of whether you’re pursuing an MBA to broaden your current skill set, climb the ladder or launch a start-up, it’s probably safe to say that you’ve done a lot of thinking, weighing and measuring: time, money, effort, outcomes, etc.

So, having decided to take the plunge, all you have to do now is choose the right school, which, in theory, shouldn’t be that difficult. If you have an idea of the delivery you’re looking for (full-time, part-time, etc.), the budget you have to work with, and the geography you’d consider – see our MBA search tool – you’ve gone some way to narrowing the field, which is a great start. However, not all MBAs are created equal, which makes putting together a shortlist a lot more challenging, but this is the point at which we can help. We look beyond the marketing brochures and ad campaigns and examine the nuts and bolts of an MBA: the learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity, gender parity and more.

Our objective is simple: to identify schools that marry exceptional quality with great ROI.

The results, or ‘rankings’ as we call them, can be seen below and should help to provide that quality benchmark.
