In the most recent edition of the Global MBA Ranking published by the Financial Times, issued on February 13, the Full-Time MBA Program on offer at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management has once again shown its might. This year, the school has come in at #20 in Europe and #2 in Germany, continuing its years-long residency in the upper tiers of the list and remaining one of Europe’s top market contenders. The Financial Times rankings constitute one of the most salient resources for potential students to understand the viability and value of the world’s best programs in business administration.
Considering all schools across the globe, WHU now ranks #68, with the school having jumped ahead seven positions over last year. A granular look at the results shows that MBA programs at WHU are particularly strong in “international mobility” (#11), reflecting that the school has maintained a presence across the globe, as well as in “sector diversity” (#19) and “ESG and net zero teaching” (#22), one new and one newly refreshed criterion respectively.
Under the stewardship of Zeeshan Sultan (Director MBA) and Professor Martin Fassnacht (Academic Director MBA), WHU’s Full-Time MBA Program has made progress in certain key areas, such as in “career services,” where WHU now ranks #27—a major leap ahead seventeen positions. That result is underpinned by the MBA Career Center’s continued recognition in other rankings over the past several years. The school has also made strides as it pertains to gender diversity and the percentage of female students enrolled in the program, where the school previously ranked #66 and now sits at #49.
The MBA programs available through the campus in Düsseldorf—ranging from full-time to part-time to remote online options—are designed for a wide range of thinkers from diverse backgrounds. With previous international modules having successfully run in Dubai, Lisbon, and New York City, MBA at WHU strives to instill in its students a global awareness of business and how to be an effective, responsible, and respectful leader both abroad and at home. WHU invites all those who may be interested in discovering more to get in touch by scheduling a coffee chat with the MBA Team.
