Bloomberg Businessweek has released their 2018 ranking of the top Global MBAs with Hult’s One-Year MBA coming in the top 100 worldwide. This is the first year of a new methodology from Bloomberg which assesses salary, network, learning, and entrepreneurship. Hult’s MBA performed particularly strongly in the Learning Index (#82) and Entrepreneurship Index (#70).

Bloomberg define their criteria for these subcategories as follows:

Learning Index:

We explore the quality, depth, and range of instruction. We focus on whether the curriculum is applicable to real-world business situations; the degree of emphasis on innovation, problem-solving, and strategic thinking; the level of inspiration and support from instructors; class size; and collaboration.

Entrepreneurship Index:

Students see entrepreneurship as central to their overall training, whether they want to start their own businesses or work at a big bank. Alumni told us whether their school took entrepreneurship as seriously as other career paths and rated the quality of training they received to start a small business or startup. Recruiters ranked schools based on whether graduates showed exceptional entrepreneurial skills and drive.

“We place high value on equipping students with an entrepreneurial skillset and we’re delighted that alumni and employers have scored us so well in this area.”

– Dr. Stephen Hodges, President, Hult International Business School

This is the latest in a stand-out year for Hult in the rankings which has seen all the school’s programs perform strongly across several major rankings. We look forward to seeing what 2019 brings as the school’s reputation continues to go from strength to strength.
