Financial Times European Business Schools Ranking
School of Management of Politecnico di Milano climbs up the FT ranking of the top 95 business schools in Europe

04 - 12 - 2017


After the QS World University Rankings, another confirmation of the School’s quality comes from the Financial Times, which lists our School in 41st place among the best European business schools. 
The programmes classified are our Executive MBA, Full-time MBA, Master of Science in Management Engineering, Corporate Customised Executive Programmes and Open Executive Programmes for managers and professionals. 

Again this year, the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano has risen in the Financial Times’ European ranking for 2017. The School has consistently improved its position in the rankings of best 95 European business schools drawn up by the authoritative London-based financial paper over the past nine years and is now placed in 41st position. Last year, the ranking only looked at 90 business schools, and despite the greater competition, the School of Management’s performance has strengthened.

Every year, the FT publishes a classification of the best MBAs, Executive MBAs, Masters in Management, and both Customised and Open Executive Education courses. There are many parameters that come into play to determine each position in the list, and among the aspects that stand out in particular are the graduates’ opinion of their teachers and the course in general, the students’ career prospects and their level of pay after graduating, and the School’s international outlook.

Listed in international rankings since 2009, once again this year the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano is ranked for a good selection of courses:   

  • Full-time MBA
  • Executive MBA
  • Master of Science in Management Engineering
  • Corporate Customised Executive Programmes
  • Open Executive Programmes for managers and professionals

The School of Management consists of the Department of Management Engineering and MIP, the business school of the Milan-based university. In the words of Alessandro Perego and Andrea Sianesi, respectively the Director of the Department of Management Engineering and the MIP Dean: 

We are well-placed in this ranking with our range of courses and Master's courses for executives and professionals, as well as for new graduates and the corporate world, a fact that highlight our fully comprehensive and inclusive offer. Among the parameters assessed in this evaluation are the career prospective for those graduating from our courses, the good opinion that they students express about their teachers and the courses, and the School’s international outlook, which was a direction that we espoused with conviction and commitment several years ago and has proved to be a winning card year after year”.

They conclude:

“Our rise in the FT rankings is, therefore, a solid acknowledgement for us and above all for our students and the companies that are our business clients, which continue to show how greatly they welcome the breadth and quality of our teaching and educational programmes.
