Among Europe’s best business schools
NHH is ranked as number 45 on the Financial Times’ overall ranking and has thus climbed ten places compared with last year's ranking.
On Monday 5 December, the Financial Times announced its overall ranking of the 95 best business schools in Europe. The overall ranking is the sum of the five sub-rankings conducted during the year.
‘I am very pleased that we climbed ten places this year, and that we are still among the best business schools in Europe. We have ambitions to climb even further, but it is rewarding to see that our determined work with research and pedagogical development reflects in the FT ranking,’ says Rector Øystein Thøgersen.
- HEC Paris
- London Business School
- ESCP Business School
CEMS SCHOOLS STAND OUT
Three of the five best ranked business schools are CEMS members, and they are HEC Paris, Bocconi University and University of St.Gallen. CEMS is an international master's degree programme (CEMS MIM) offered at a number of leading business schools. NHH is Norway’s only member of the CEMS network.
The ranking also includes several business schools that are members of the European ENGAGE alliance, of which NHH is also a member.
Emphasises pay and careers
The Financial Times’ overall ranking emphasises graduates’ pay and careers, but the programmes’ international orientation and diversity are also taken into account. The five sub-categories are weighted as follows:
- MBA (25 per cent)
- Masters in Management (25 per cent)
- EMBA (25 per cent)
- Executive Education Open (12.5 per cent)
- Executive Education Custom 12.5 per cent)
