FT Global MBA Ranking 2021


The program climbs 17 positions in the Financial Times ranking, gaining 12th place in the world and 5th in Europe. Third in the world for best value for money

Acknowledged for the results obtained by its graduates and by their evaluations, SDA Bocconi School of Management's Full-Time MBA program climbs 17 positions in the ranking of the best MBAs published by the Financial Times and gains 12th position in the world and 5th in Europe. The program - the only Italian program in the list of the top 100 - also ranks 3rd in the world for the best value-for-money.

The FT ranking is based on about 20 parameters: based on students' results three years after graduation, in terms of, for example, salary increase ( +126% for SDA graduates, the second highest in Europe) and career progress, evaluations provided by graduates and some data provided by schools. SDA Bocconi's program stands out for the 'value-for-money' criteria (which takes into account post-diploma salary, cost and duration of the pogram, and lost income during the pogram), for which it ranks 3rd in the world.

"Those who join the select group of our MBAs," comments Giuseppe Soda, Dean of the Business School, "know that they have access not only to a school of excellence but also to a real training ground for learning management techniques." "Our young managers can rest easy even in the midst of the pandemic," adds Francesco Daveri, director of the MBA pogram, "since their time and savings are invested with all the care necessary to generate lasting career opportunities that do not end with chasing easy earnings." 

SDA Bocconi's Full-Time MBA is an international program that thrives on diversity, with 65% of participants coming from 30 countries, one-third of the class being female, and a position in the world's top 10 for presence of female faculty. The high regard graduates enjoy in the job market is reflected in the fact that 92% find a job within three months of graduation and their mobility by the fact that over 80% find a job in a different country, sector or function from where they previously worked. 

Recently, the pogram was confirmed as 3rd in Europe in the Economist's ranking of the best MBAs, 6th in the world.
