Financial Times Rankings European Business School 2023

The Politecnico di Milano Business School is second at European level among those belonging to a technical university according to the FT European Business School Rankings 2023

POLIMI Graduate School of Management – the business school that is part of the Politecnico di Milano School of Management – is once again this year confirmed as one of the top business schools in Europe. According to the Financial Times European Business Schools Rankings 2023, published today, the Politecnico Business School remains stable in second place in Europe among schools belonging to a technical university (namely, Politecnico di Milano), behind only Imperial College Business School (UK). In the general rankings, the Milanese business school ranks 36th out of the 90 classified, thus celebrating its continued presence in the top 40 on the occasion of the 13th year since it entered the rankings for the first time (2010).

“Confirmation of our position at the top of the Financial Times’ European rankings is our reward for the commitment we have made in recent years to renewing our portfolio and the content of our programmes to give our students and the companies with which we collaborate a valuable range of training that distinguishes us in the education landscape”, declared Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini, respectively President and Dean of POLIMI Graduate School of Management. It is a satisfaction that even exceeds our enthusiasm for featuring in the rankings for so many years: above all, we are proud that the basis of this result is our students’ appreciation. Since 2020, around 3,200 people have chosen our Masters and almost 600 companies have been involved as partners in extra-curricular activities. The strength of these connections with the entrepreneurial and productive fabric is demonstrated by post-graduation results that satisfy us even more than any international recognition.” 

The excellence of the POLIMI Graduate School of Management’s training courses is also confirmed by the other criteria which, to varying degrees, affect the final score. The EMBA (Executive Master in Business Administration designed for professionals whose career has been under way for at least 6 years) rises to 47th place in the relevant rankings, gaining 7 positions on 2022. There is also improvement in the Salary Increase rating, which is the level of a manager’s pay three years after graduation and the relative difference compared to the pre-Master period: on average, after completing their Master degree, the salary of POLIMI Graduate School of Management alumni increases by 62% for Executive MBAs and almost doubles (+95%) for MBAs, aimed at those with over 3 years of work experience. Among the professors, the level of representation of women (41%) is also good. 

Today, the employment rate of a Full-Time MBA student from POLIMI Graduate School of Management three months after graduation is 88%. Over 80% of those who attended an Executive MBA had a career upgrade within two years of completing the Master, while 20% embarked on a career abroad and 6% founded a start-up.

POLIMI Graduate School of Management’s educational portfolio includes approximately 40 Masters degrees, including 7 MBAs and Executive MBAs, over 300 executive open programmes and numerous custom-designed training courses for companies. Each year, it collaborates with more than 100 companies, creating over 180 tailor-made training programmes, providing more than 4,000 hours of training and involving over 30,000 employees.
