FT Ranking: SDA Bocconi’s MBA ranks first worldwide for participant satisfaction

Global MBA Rankings 2022 – Financial Times


In the FT ranking, the program is confirmed in fifth place in Europe and obtains the highest score for the overall satisfaction expressed by its graduates. Fourth in the world for best value for money.

The SDA Bocconi School of Management Full-Time MBA is confirmed as a program that fully satisfies the objectives and expectations of its students, obtaining first position in the world for satisfaction among graduates in the new ranking of the best MBAs in the world published by the Financial Times today. In the overall ranking, which takes into consideration 20 parameters, the program ranks 13th in the world and 5th in Europe.

The ranking takes into account, for example, students' results three years after graduation, in terms of, for example, salary increase (+122% for SDA graduates, the third highest in Europe) and career progress, evaluations provided by graduates and some data provided by schools. SDA Bocconi's program stands out for the ‘overall satisfaction’ expressed by graduates, with the score of 9.89/10 the highest worldwide. Whilst for the 'value-for-money' criteria (which takes into account post-diploma salary, cost and duration of the program, and lost income during the program), SDA Bocconi ranks 4th in the world.

"Such positive feedback from participants is the best testimony that our MBA offers a complete educational experience, capable of combining excellence in content and teaching methodologies with campus life and networking with a highly qualified and stimulating business community and leaders. In addition, the careful customization of activities in support of career paths with which the School accompanies each student even after graduation has allowed us to achieve this goal," says Giuseppe Soda, Dean of SDA Bocconi. "These results are always the result of teamwork, but on this occasion the guidance of Francesco Daveri, who recently and prematurely passed away, and who directed the program for the last 4 years, was the classic extra gear."

SDA Bocconi's Full-Time MBA is an international program that attracts participants from 30 countries and with one-third of the class being female. The high regard graduates enjoy in the job market is reflected in the fact that 95% 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.

In the most recent rankings, the program ranked 3rd in Bloomberg Businessweek's Best European MBAs, and 1st for the "compensation" index, and 1st globally for return on investment (ROI) in the QS Global MBA Rankings.
