NUREMBERG, Germany, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- puls Market Research has compiled a ranking of 20 reputable European Business Schools and Universities. The ranking focuses on the success of the respective institutions’ graduates based on data from the years 2017 to 2019. The following criteria were taken into account:

  • Average salary of graduates after completing their course of studies
  • Employment rate after graduation

These two criteria were condensed into an unweighted index.

The required information was either polled directly from the university by telephone or e-mail, or determined through other media by means of secondary research. The survey exclusively considered European universities: 20 institutions from nine different countries.

The ranking resulted in the London Business School from Great Britain taking first place – especially due to its top placement with a view to graduates’ salaries. Second position is also occupied by an institution from the United Kingdom: the University of Cambridge (Judge) with graduates’ salaries almost equally as high. Iese Business School from Spain manages to secure third place on the podium for itself.

Slightly behind that, IE Business School, also from Spain, takes fourth place (here, only data from 2017 and 2019 was available). HEC Paris from France follows fifth. Behind it, IMD Business School from Switzerland claims a very close sixth position which is followed by the United Kingdom’s University of Oxford (Saïd) in place number seven. Zurich Elite Business School from Switzerland boasts top values with regard to employability and thus manages to claim eighth position. Cranfield School of Management from the UK follows in rank number nine. Last but not least, the SDA Bocconi School of Management from Italy can also secure itself a place within the Top 10.
