The survey rates leading MBA programs from around the world using a broad range of criteria, including Academic Quality, Return on Investment and Global Value. The survey employs a predominantly statistical-based methodology to rank business schools, with points awarded in key areas of measurement such as international scope and orientation, average GMAT, post-MBA average salary and average salary percentage increase, and faculty research output.
