Simon School moves up on Financial Times list
The Simon School is ranked 38 among the world’s top 100 business schools in an annual survey by the Financial Times of London. The new ranking shows Simon moving up from number 40 in last year’s survey. Simon also moved up on the list of U.S. top business schools from 23rd to 22nd place.
Based on alumni recommendations, the British newspaper listed Simon fourth in the world for managerial economics and fifth for both finance and accounting.
“We are indeed gratified by this international recognition from the Financial Times,” says Dean Mark Zupan. “Our ultimate goal is to continue providing our students with a first-rate graduate business education while remaining committed to a process of continuous improvement.”
The annual survey, described by the Financial Times as a “comprehensive assessment of the value of an M.B.A. and the schools that offer them,” was based this year on information collected from 155 business schools and their Class of 2003 graduates in areas such as career progression, diversity, and research.
