Cambridge MBA ranked 16th in global FT rankings


The annual Financial Times global MBA rankings published today (28 January) place Cambridge Judge Business School 16th among the world’s MBA programmes.

The Cambridge MBA is ranked third in value for money and 89 per cent of alumni who responded to the survey indicated that they fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an MBA.

Cambridge Judge improved its ranking to ninth in career progress, reflecting changes in the level of seniority and size of company alumni work in now, compared with before their MBA.

This academic year, the Cambridge MBA programme has consolidated the recent growth in the class size and attracted an even wider international pool of candidates. The Cambridge MBA is ranked tenth in international mobility and we continue to attract a diverse class with 51 nationalities, across 38 sectors.

The MBA learning experience has again been commended by external examiners as innovative, intellectually stimulating and highly practical.

Dean of the School, Christoph Loch, said:

“Cambridge Judge Business School is proud of our development as a global business school that combines research, teaching and seeks to offer a truly transformational experience for our students so they can make a tangible difference to the world.

“While we acknowledge that rankings can be useful, our mission and strategy are not driven by maximising rankings. We aim to deliver an MBA which is rigorous, practical, and relevant to modern business, and we recruit a class which is diverse, international and primed for collaborative learning. While the survey recognises some of our accomplishments, the survey’s heavy focus on salary does not reflect all the values and goals of our programmes.”
