FBA’s Master in International Management/CEMS Lands 18th in 2023 MiM Ranking by Financial Times
September traditionally belongs to MIM ranking releases by the Financial Times. This year, in that “Financial Times Masters in Management 2023” ranking race, the Master in International Management (CEMS) programme taught in English at the Faculty of Business Administration made the TOP 20 list, ending 18th out of the top 100 Masters in Management Programmes. This achievement places Prague University of Economics and Business among the best business courses worldwide.
The first place was claimed by HEC Paris, with the Swiss University of St. Gallen securing second place. As opposed to last year, the third position witnessed a move up from last year’s seventh position by the London Business School.
Notably, two of these universities are members of the CEMS alliance, just like Prague University of Economics and Business.
To view the full ranking, go here.
The FT assessed the programs based on 17 different metrics, conidering criteria such as career progression of program graduates (including salary conditions), diversity of the school (ratio of women among teachers or share of international students), international opportunities, and last but not least criteria such as enrollment, or share of internships in companies. The fine prints in the methodology behind the ranking include alumni survey responses, school data and accounts, with a significant emphasis on the current average salary of alumni.
This placement reaffirms that Prague University of Economics and Business (VSE) offers a top-notch international management education that stands strong against foreign competition in the worldwide context. The quality alone is reflected in the fact that the VSE Programme was awarded the 2022 CEMS School of the Year.
Key features of the CEMS MIM program
What really tips the scales are a high level of teaching, where the program is not only constantly benchmarked by the CEMS alliance, close cooperation with selected corporate partners such as Hilti, Škoda Auto or Plzeňský Prazdroj, but also international exposure because students must complete an internship abroad and spend one semester at a selected foreign university from the CEMS alliance, which currently consists of 34 top world universities and almost 70 corporate partners. Having done their studies in English, the graduates then easily land jobs with foreign companies and over the course of 3 years after their studies draw average salaries in the neighbourhood of over 150,000 CZK a month.
