Published: 2022-12-03

The finance newspaper Financial Times (FT) announced on Monday 5 December the latest results in FT European Business School Rankings 2022 and LUSEM is now 11 places closer to the top!

LUSEM climbs 11 places

In the latest ranking by Financial Times, the FT European Business School Rankings 2022, LUSEM climbs 11 places and finishes #78 compared to the last position of #89. To end up at this prestigious list at all is something to be proud of. Out of about 300 business schools in Europe only 95 ends up on the FT ranking list. 

Martin Blom, Vice Dean with special responsibility of education, is of course happy about LUSEM's position on the list and comments on us being in good company:

”LUSEM is one of a very limited number of Swedish business schools on this prestigious list. Together with Stockholm School of Economics and Jönköping International Business School we are the only Swedish business schools on the list. We are also delighted to see so many of our international partner universities being highly ranked.” 

A testimony of efforts

Reached by the good news our Dean Mats Benner is of course very happy and proud. He says:

”The ranking position is a testimony of the efforts of all at LUSEM – students, staff and faculty. We are a great school! I am immensely proud of what we have achieved and will do my utmost to raise the bar even more in the future.”

On the list already in 2020

Every year the Financial Times ranks 95 business schools in Europe. This assessment is a “ranking of rankings” derived from the performance of European schools in the most recent individual rankings of global providers for MBAs, EMBAs and MiMs, as well as for non-degree executive education courses. The individual FT rankings take into account graduate outcomes, including salary and career progress, as well as factors such as quality of research and international and gender diversity of students, faculty and school governing bodies.

According to the above mentioned the prerequisite for getting on the list is that you have first been ranked for certain MSc programmes. LUSEM achieved a place on the list already in 2020, based on the ranking of the MSc programme in International Strategic Management, ranked #75. The latest ranking of that programme was done in September 2022 when it was ranked #57 on Financial Times' prestigious annual global ranking of 100 Master’s programmes in Management. This ranking is based on what alumni – former students – say about their education three years after graduation.

Paris and London once again received top positions

Just like in 2020 and 2021 the renowned business schools in Paris and London received the top positions; HEC Paris was ranked 1st this year and London Business School 2nd.
