The top 90 Masters in Management ranking was published on the FT website on Monday 28 September. It comprises data about the programme, the school, recent graduates, and several elements that were measured in a 2020 survey of graduates from the class of 2017.
The FT ranking took into account several attributes, including their salaries, career progress, international mobility and how graduates consider they have achieved their aims. RSM’s top position in this global ranking is a result of a good all-round performance in each of the criteria. It confirms RSM’s place in the top 5 of Master in Management programmes in the world. The FT ranking includes several other Dutch business schools.
