Hult International Business School’s Master of International Business program has debuted at number 13 in The Economist’s first ever ranking of the world’s best Masters in Management programs.

The ranking is a recognition of the school’s diversity, global reach, and graduate career results.  The Hult review saw the program rank at the top in many categories including:

#1 for Diversity of Recruiters
#1 for Student Diversity
#1 for Geographical Diversity
#1 for Overseas Study Programs
#1 for Languages on Offer
#3 for Overseas Alumni Chapters
#9 for Post-MiM Salary

The Economist’s Masters in Management 2017 Ranking reviewed general business programs where no more than 40% of the degree is focused on a single functional area. You can review the full ranking here.

According to The Economist, Masters in Management degrees are now the most sought-after graduate degrees, particularly in Europe. They pinpoint the main difference between a MiM and an MBA as the work experience of the students and say that, whereas those taking an MBA are often looking to change careers, those on MiM programs are looking to land their first job: “Masters in Management degrees cover nearly all of the same academic ground as their posher cousins [MBAs]. But instead of recruiting people who have already been working for years, MiM students tend to join programmes straight from their undergraduate degrees. Students who study an MBA at a school ranked by The Economist typically have six years’ work experience. Those listed on our inaugural MiM ranking have less than 18 months.”

Hult’s President, Dr. Stephen Hodges, said:

“We’re pleased that Hult is ranking so highly in The Economist’s inaugural rankings of Master in Management programs. Our Master of International Business program offers a distinctive global experience that employers value and reward, so we’re proud to see this recognition reflected in the categories we placed top in.”
