Global Business Schools Ranking

The ranking is administered by an independent group of experts who operate as a non-profit association. The ranking office operates autonomously from the accreditation team, ensuring a clear separation of functions. While the accreditation team focuses on evaluating institutions based on established criteria and standards, the ranking office employs its expertise to assess and rank universities and business schools using a variety of metrics and methodologies. This separation ensures objectivity and impartiality in both processes, maintaining the integrity and credibility of the rankings and accreditation systems.
