Methodology overview: http://iu.qs.com/projects-and-services/world-university-rankings/
The Financial Times newspaper publishes a number of specialized rankings which do not include universities as a whole but specific programs, business education activities or Business Schools. These are:
- Global MBA - The FT surveys graduates three years after they have completed the degree, to assess the effect of the MBA on their subsequent career progression and salary growth.
- Executive Education - Open enrollment and customized programs - This ranking includes all executive open programs with a minimum duration of 3 days. Open programs are the ones open to employees from any company or organization.
- Executive Education - Customized programs - Customized programs are tailor-made programs for organizations that want to offer specific training to employees.
- Masters in Management - This is a ranking of pre-experience masters programs in general management. As usual, it is compiled using data from two sets of surveys, one completed by alumni who graduated from the respective programs three years before and the other by the business schools.
- Masters in Finance - This is a ranking of pre-experience masters programs in Finance.
- European Business Schools - This ranking of rankings is based on the five FT rankings seen above: full-time MBA; the open enrollment and customized non-degree executive education programs; masters in management degrees; and Executive MBA. The European Business Schools result takes into account the number of programs ranked by the FT for each European school and the quality of these programs as assessed by the rankings.
