College Choice, which focuses on college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 rankings for the Best Business Schools in the World.
As the economy becomes a more global affair, business professionals are looking towards getting a graduate degree that specializes them in international business. So it’s no surprise that business schools around the world are heeding that call and have developed a degree that meets the needs of these business professionals.
“Enter the Global MBA, a relatively new development in the world of MBAs. Business schools in the U.S. have led the way in graduate business education for decades, and the two-year MBA has long been accepted as the standard. But a new breed of one-year MBAs at schools in both Europe and Asia is on the rise, and to say they’re holding their own in the world of management would be an understatement,” Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, stated of the ranking’s publication.
The 2016 College Choice ranking of the Best Business Schools in the World was put together with factors that matter to business students. Academic reputation, the overall cost of attending the school, length to graduation, and graduation employment rates were all taken into consideration. This research was done by utilizing the school’s website and program, along with a nationwide survey of college freshmen published by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA and statistical sites like the National Center for Education Statistics.
The HEC School of Management is first in the College Choice 2016 ranking for the Best Business Schools in the world, followed by Harvard University and the University of California at Berkeley.
