QS Online MBA Rankings 2024: POLIMI Graduate School of Management is first in the world for the quality of faculty and teaching


In the general rankings, the Business School, an integral part of the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano, is placed fifth in the Europe, Middle East and Africa area and eighth worldwide. 

The QS Online MBA Rankings 2024, Quacquarelli Symonds' periodic classification of the quality of business schools at international level, confirms the excellence of the teaching provided by POLIMI Graduate School of Management, part of the Politecnico di Milano School of Management. Thanks to its International Flex MBA (Master in Business Administration) delivered in digital learning, the Milanese University’s business school ranks fifth in the Europe/Middle East/Africa area out of 34 schools evaluated. Globally, however, it ranks eighth out of 102 programmes. The recognition obtained follows by just a few weeks the equally significant acknowledgment by the Financial Times for the same Master. 

An analysis of the individual parameters on which the QS rankings are based shows the absolute primacy, for the second consecutive year, at global and regional level (Europe/Middle East/Africa) with regard to the Faculty & Teaching criterion, which includes Academic Reputation (quality of Faculty and teaching measured annually by surveys of more than 95,000 academic profiles around the world), the Faculty/Student Ratio (proportion between lecturers and students) and the Completion Rate (percentage of students who complete the Master). In these last two indicators, POLIMI GSoM obtained a score of 100/100, thus placing the School in first place again this year and confirming the best result ever since it has appeared in the rankings.

In addition to the School’s preeminence for the quality of its Faculty and teaching, QS also recognises the quality of the International Flex MBA in relation to the parameters of Class Experience (value and effectiveness of learning)and Employability (graduates’ employment return),for which it is ranked in third and sixth place respectively for the regional area of reference attributed by QS to the School.  

“Once again this year, our International Flex MBA has been confirmed as among the best in the world, strengthening our School as a global reference point in higher management education and digital learning”, commented Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini, respectively President and Dean of POLIMI Graduate School of Management. “The recognition of the quality of our Faculty and teaching, in which we are first in the world according to the opinion of 95,000 international academic profiles, encourages us to continue to innovate our teaching offer. Our goal is to help train a new type of manager who is not only technically competent, but who also has an understanding of the human and social dynamics that develop in a company. The recognitions we have received in recent months motivate us to continue along the path we have taken, reinforcing our belief that our business school’s role is to train the new generations of leaders who, through their work, can contribute to building a more equitable, inclusive and responsible society.”

POLIMI Graduate School of Management has featured in the QS Online MBA Rankings since 2018, when it entered directly in 20th place in the world. Since then, it has remained a constant in the classification, already reaching the top 10 in the following year, and remaining there in the subsequent years as well. 

Powered by one of the most advanced digital learning platforms in the world, POLIMI Graduate School of Management's International Flex MBAis designed to prepare qualified and motivated managers to lead businesses in a market characterised by disruptive and rapidly evolving technologies. The duration of the Master varies from 15 to 32 months and is accessible to managers with at least 3 years of work experience, also facilitating students with a flexible programme in perfect balance with their work commitments.
