(LONDON – October 17, 2012) For the third year running, The Economist’s Which MBA? ranking, names Hult’s MBA program as the undisputed leader in percentage salary increase – ahead of all other business schools.
The Economist, which bases its scores on feedback from recent graduates, also ranked Hult first for the diversity of recruiters. This ranking measures how broadly students were recruited from companies across 11 sectors, including consulting, financial services, pharmaceuticals, technology, and non-for-profit.
Hult was also acclaimed for the internationalism of its alumni, making it into the top five. Just a handful of the schools in The Economist’s three-year study have campuses in multiple countries. Of these, Hult (which has campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, and Shanghai, plus rotation centers in São Paulo and New York City) is best equipped to offer its students a truly international experience. At any given time, Hult has students from more than 140 different countries studying at its campuses, taught by world-class faculty with extensive business experience. Students can also benefit from being part of a diverse network of more than 8,000 alumni.
“By embracing diversity, welcoming new technology and giving our students the chance to study in the world’s most exciting economies, we’ve developed a truly unique and global learning experience,” said Hult President Dr. Stephen Hodges. “Graduates are increasingly expected to enter the employment market with an understanding of subtle cultural differences, and these results show that we’re helping them achieve that.”
He added: “Only the best business schools are selected for inclusion in the annual Which MBA? ranking, and I’m delighted that our learning environment – so often praised by students and global corporations – has been awarded such an impressive overall score.”
The 2012 Which MBA? ranks Hult as the 21st-best MBA program in the United States and the 31st-best in the world – beating out respected institutions like Oxford and Boston University.
