Best Masters Ranking Methodology
Eduniversal bases its rankings based on three criteria, namely, the reputation of the program, the salary of the first employment and the students’ satisfaction.
In terms of the reputation of the program, 50% of this score is based on the opinions of recruiters and the remaining 50% on the level of Palme of Excellence of the school.
Every year, the Eduniversal Official Selection of the 1000 best Business Schools throughout 154 countries is reviewed and refined by members of the Eduniversal Scientific Committee.
The schools selected by members of the committee are grouped by country and ranked in the different Palmes of Excellence leagues according to their international influence, reputation and quality.
The information provided by each program on salaries is verified by Eduniversal. The salaries are weighted by country and by the average annual salary of its executives. Three scales are used according to the type of program (MBA full time, EMBA and all other programs).
For assessing students’ satisfaction, a survey comprising 11 questions is emailed to graduating students to assess satisfaction with the completed program. A minimum of 10% of the students in each program must reply to be scored.
