Congratulations London Business School!!!! We just received this note from the school:
Dear MBA alumni,
As many of you will have seen in today’s Financial Times, our MBA programme was ranked second in the world and first in Europe. We moved up three positions compared to last year’s ranking.
The report highlighted:
– the graduating class’ employment record: 96% of our 2007 graduating class accepted job offers within three months of graduation and reported a 126% increase in their pre-MBA salary.
<lucky they bring some of us charity type folks in, huh?>
– the global nature of the School: the proportions of international faculty (83%) and international students (90%) were the highest among the top five schools.
– the quality of our research: our research ranking increased by eight places to number three in the world.
This strong result is testament to our very talented students and alumni, as well as the dedicated work of our faculty and staff, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in building the success of the programme, from interviewing prospective candidates, to recruiting graduating students.
Our commitment is to continue to strive to develop strong business leaders who will have a positive impact on business worldwide. While we acknowledge the importance of rankings like these, our focus remains on our Vision to become the pre-eminent global business school.
