This is the 18th once-a-year Money Moments ranking of European business universities. It is a composite ranking based mostly on the combined overall performance of Europe’s top universities throughout the 5 main rankings of programmes posted by the FT in 2021: MBA, Government MBA, Masters in Management (MiM) and in 2020 for the two rankings of non-diploma govt education and learning programmes as we did not run the Tailor made and Open rankings this 12 months. The On the net MBA and Masters in Finance rankings are not bundled.

The European college rank is calculated immediately after taking away non-European universities for each of these main rankings. MBA, EMBA and MiM account for twenty five per cent each of each school’s complete overall performance. For Government Instruction, the scores obtained for customised and open up programmes each account for 12.five per cent. Schools will have to have a minimum amount complete bodyweight of twenty five out of a achievable a hundred for all 5 rankings to be eligible.

Universities rated with a joint programme obtain a proportional share of the programme’s indexed rating. For illustration, Essec gets 50 per cent of the rating achieved by its joint EMBA programme with Mannheim — well worth 12.five per cent of the achievable a hundred complete bodyweight.

The ranking measures the schools’ high-quality and breadth of programmes. Quality is provided a higher emphasis so that universities supplying significant-high-quality teaching but not giving all the various courses deemed can still accomplish strongly over-all.
