28 - 11 - 2017

The School is in 33rd place in Europe for Global MBA programs and 20th in the world for Masters in Business Analytics. This excellent position was certainly helped by some of the School’s strengths, including the ease with which its students can have access to the business world, its good return of investment, its high international outlook and its particular care over diversity.

The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano is again taking its well-deserved place among the best Business Schools in the world.

The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano is always positioned in the upper end of the classification for Masters and the courses under examination. In the ranking for Masters in Management, it has risen to 25th place, and is the first Italian Business School (and tenth in the world) for “Return on Investment”, an indicator measuring yield against expenditure, and amongst the best for “Employability”, which measures how readily students can access the world of work.

Going into more detail on the various Masters analysed in this world-wide survey, in the Global MBA Rankings, the School of Management is in 33rd place among the 70 European Schools. This target was achieved in part through our performance in “Diversity”, an indicator measuring the percentage of women and non-Italian nationals in both the student body and the faculty. 

In the words of Andrea Sianesi, the Dean of MIP Politecnico di Milano,

This is a wonderful result that clearly rewards our process of internationalisation, a course of action that we have and are pursuing with consistency and determination. Another factor is our policy to improve gender diversity, an area to which we are giving much thought and care.

The School has also been awarded high scores in the indicators that measure “Academic Reputation”, “Staff with a PhD”, “Research Impact” and “Employer Reputation”.
In addition, according to rankings for Masters in Business Analytics, the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano is in 20th place in the world, and scored highly in two indicators “Employability” (7th place) and “Thought Leadership” (13th place).
