Top Business and Management Schools in Europe 2015


If you are interested in pursuing further education in business related topics, it is probably time to make a final decision and complete your applications. Hand checking the best business schools for your postgraduate education is a good start to make the right choices for the upcoming year.

Preparing a list of the best institutions for your studies is never easy, particularly in the case of disciplines such as business, where hundreds of organizations provide numerous rankings and classifications criteria. From private institutions to organizations focused on academia, the most common measure of rankings are the faculty publications in academic and practitioner journals, as well as the level of accreditation of the programs of the faculty. Other cases similar to the Forbes ranking are based on the return of investment achieved by graduates, according to surveys regarding topics such as pre- and post-M.B.A. compensation, career choice and location.

After revising different rankings with distinct approaches we came up with the list below, which offers multiple options concerning different institutions across the globe, with unique cultural backgrounds and teaching environments that are organized alphabetically by location.
