We’re proud to announce that Hult International Business School’s Global One-Year MBA program has ranked 43rd best in the world in The Economist’s prestigious annual Which MBA? ranking.

In the past two years, Hult’s Economist ranking has increased significantly and steadily with a climb of 17 places. This improvement is due to the school’s strong performance in several categories, notably regarding salary increase for graduates (“Percent Salary Increase”) and the number of different industries employing graduates (“Diversity of Recruiters”).

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

In key subcategories the Hult Global One-Year MBA was ranked:

– #1 for Diversity of Recruiters

– #7 for Overseas Alumni Chapters

– #8 for % Salary Increase (up from #11 LY)

– #15 for Student Diversity


Which MBA? is The Economist’s annual global ranking of full-time MBA programs. It aims to determine the world’s best MBA by scoring schools across 12 different categories, including career opportunities, educational experience, salary, and networking opportunities.

“We’re relentlessly focused on preparing students for the reality of tomorrow’s business world. I think that’s reflected in our improved rankings performance.”

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

“We’re very happy with our climb in The Economist’s latest ranking,” said Hult’s President, Dr. Stephen Hodges. “It’s critical for a business education today to go beyond business. Global innovation is challenging the tools and skills that leaders need, and that’s why we’re relentlessly focused on preparing students for the reality of tomorrow’s business world. Students come to Hult to think differently about their future, and I think that’s reflected in our improved rankings performance.”
