List: Top Ten Full-time MBA Programmes in the World

Date: October 2009

Source: The Economist via Growth Business magazine.

Base: 110 officially recognised MBA programmes worldwide.

Notes: Click here to see the methodology used for this ranking. The Economist notes that: "Rankings are little more than an indication of the MBA market at a particular time. They reflect the prevailing conditions such as salaries, jobs available and the situation at a school at the time the survey was carried out. Results of rankings can be notoriously volatile, so they should be treated with caution. However, our ranking takes data over a three-year period, which helps provide a more rounded picture." First place went to Spain's IESE Business School. London Business School was the sole UK institution to feature in the top ten, in eighth place (up from ninth in 2008). The top US institution was the University of California at Berkeley's Haas School of Business, ranked third globally, with Chicago's Booth School and Harvard Business School in fourth and fifth places respectively.
