Rankings and accreditations


The rankings of the international business newspaper Financial Times (FT), published in more than 20 countries around the world, are a generally accepted indicator of the quality of a business school or an individual program. Along with rankings from Business Week, The Economist, and the Wall Street Journal, the FT serves as a guiding choice for many MBA and corporate program's students, as well as prospective students of Master  in Management and Finance programs.



An integrative ranking that evaluates leading business schools based on program performance:

  • MBA / Executive MBA;
  • Masters in Management;
  • Executive Education.

The ranking evaluates educational programs according to a number of criteria, including:

  • salary today, the weight of the indicator in the final assessment is 20%;
  • salary Increase, the weight of the indicator in the final assessment is 20%;
  • FT research rank, the weight of the indicator in the final assessment is 10%;
  • aims achieved, the weight of the indicator in the final assessment is 5%;
  • career progress, indicator weight in the final assessment is 5%;
  • work experience, the weight of the indicator in the final assessment is 5%.

It is a ranking of Master in Management programs, compiled on the basis of data obtained from business schools and their alumni, which are interviewed anonymously. 

Only business schools with at least one of the international accreditations: AACSB and EQUIS can take part in the ranking.

A total of 17 criteria are taken into account: the rate of salary growth over three years, career growth, support for a business school in career development, the percentage of alumni who got a job three months after graduation, the number of foreign teachers and others. And, of course, one of the main indicators is the average salary of alumni three years after graduation.



WhichMBA? The Economist

The ranking of Master programs was first presented by the influential international magazine The Economist in 2017. The ranking is updated every two years.



A place in the ranking "WhichMBA?" is determined based on four criteria:

  • open new career opportunities;
  • personal development and educational experience;
  • salary;
  • potential to network.

The collection of information is carried out in two stages: in the first stage, the Business school provides information, and the main quantitative indicators are determined, in the second, students and the last year alumni answer questions. Upon completion of the collection of information, The Economist verifies the information received.

QS evaluates MBA educational programs according to the following criteria

  • the results of the career growth of listeners;
  • the diversity of listeners;
  • reputation of the program among employers;
  • average experience in management positions and the number of senior managers among students;
