Masters in Management: Top 25 Programs
We have earlier shared some details about the tuition fees of the top 10 Masters in Management programs. In this post, we will talk about some more details of the top MIM programs, such as the course duration, the class-size, the demographics of the course and the location of these top universities! We will also expand the list to bring the top 25 business schools into our purview.
While you search for your perfect B-School, do not keep yourself limited only to the ranked program, rather evaluate the university as a whole and if the programs it offers meet your requirements.
Though, before you dive into the data, there are probably some things you should keep in mind.
Program Rankings: Almost all Business schools have multiple masters programs, on average more than 10! However, when it comes to the rankings for MIM, each school chooses just one program to be evaluated by the ranking body. This basically means that while you search for your perfect b-school, do not keep yourself limited only to the ranked program, rather evaluate the university as a whole and if the programs it offers meet your requirements. For example: At the University of St. Gallen, the Strategy and International Management Masters is ranked the world number 1 program by Financial Times. Entry to this program is also extremely selective. However, there are several other specialized masters programs, such as for marketing, finance, accounting, business innovation offered by the University of St. Gallen, which have a very solid reputation, and are also easier to get admission to.
Weighted Salary: A lot of candidates get blinded by this metric. The weighted salary reports are usually adjusted for Purchasing Power Parity. What it means is that the average salary received by the graduating students has the purchasing power equal to the weighted salary figure in the US. For example: the weighted salary figure for IIM Ahmedabad is $120K. This means that the average salary received by students in India has the same buying power as a salary of $120K in the US. What it definitely doesn’t mean is that the average salary was 84 lakhs rupees, a direct conversion of $120K!
International Student %: This could be a very interesting metric for international students looking to go for the top programs. If a school has a lower percentage of international students, then you should probably get in touch with program directorate to ask relevant questions such as placement support for international students, the opportunities available for cultural exchanges and such.
