Rankings & Accreditations


Bloomberg Businessweek rankings

We rank in Bloomberg Businessweek’s best full-time MBA programs for 2014. Businessweek ranks U.S. and international schools primarily according to student and employer satisfaction, which determine 90% of the score. We placed 21st in the international category, as well as in the top ten for employer satisfaction that rates graduates’ performance on specific qualities important to employers and how effective they were once hired. Our strong performance with employers in these rankings reinforces our mission to provide the most globally relevant business education.

New England Association of Schools and Colleges

In 1976, Hult International Business School was accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.,  NEASC, North America’s oldest regional governing accreditation body of the top business programs in the northeastern United States.

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by this Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied though a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
