AMSTERDAM – The Rotterdam School of Management of Erasmus University has dropped one place in the ranking of the best business and management courses in Europe.
This year, the program has to settle for fifteenth position in the ranking published annually by the Financial Times business newspaper. This makes it the highest ranked Dutch course in the list, which also includes a Dutch newcomer.
The French HEC Paris has once again been named number one in the prestigious list. The London Business School and IESE Business School complete the stage.
The list contains three other Dutch courses. The increase at the Tias Business School of Tilburg University is striking. The people of Tilburg rise 48 places to 38th. Tilburg University’s School of Economics and Management, which ranked 86th last year, has dropped out of the list this year.
The Amsterdam Business School is a new addition to the list. The UvA’s program ranks 78th. There is also good news for Nyenrode Business University: it rises three places to 42.
For the ranking, Financial Times looks at, among other things, the average salary of graduates, the salary increase in the period three years after graduation and the extent to which the institutes succeed in attracting foreign students and teachers.
