FBA’s Master in International Management/CEMS makes TOP 25 list in 2022 ranking by Financial Times
September traditionally belongs to MIM ranking releases by the Financial Times. This year, in that “Financial Times Masters in Management 2022” ranking race, the Master in International Management (CEMS) program taught in English at the Faculty of Business Administration made the TOP 25 list, ending 25th. Prague University of Economics and Business thus places among the best business courses worldwide.
The first place was successfully defended by the Swiss University of St. Gallen. The same applies to HEC Paris, France, which placed second again. The third position, however, witnessed a move up from last year’s fifth position by the Rotterdam School of Management.
In all three cases, these universities are members of the CEMS alliance, the same as the Prague University of Economics and Business.
Measuring 17 various metrics, the FT evaluated the programs by criteria like 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 research, and last but not least criteria such as enrollment, or share of internships in companies. The fine prints in the methodology behind the ranking cover alumni survey responses, school data and accounts, with the most significant weighting taken by the current average salary of alumni.
The placement is primarily proof that if students are looking for a quality international management education that stacks up against foreign competition in the worldwide context, the Prague University of Economics and Business (VSE) is a great choice.
Key features of the MIM (CEMS) 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.
