INSEAD has been ranked number one in the international ranking in the influential Bloomberg Businessweek MBA ranking results for 2010.

In 2008, INSEAD was ranked number three.

Three elements determine the Bloomberg Businessweek ranking:

A student survey: 45% weight. INSEAD ranked fifth in the student survey.

Bloomberg Businessweek surveyed INSEAD’s graduates from the July 2010 class about their attitude towards the school in terms of the quality of fellow participants, of faculty and teaching, and of career services. In addition, the student survey includes weighted averages from the 2006 and 2008 rankings.

A recruiter survey: 45% weight. INSEAD ranked third in the recruiter survey.

Bloomberg Businessweek polled the person in charge of MBA recruitment at about 200 companies asking them to rate the schools according to the quality of the school’s graduates and their company’s experience with MBAs. The recruiter survey also includes weighted averages from the 2006 and 2008 rankings.

An intellectual capital survey: 10% weight. INSEAD ranked number two in the intellectual capital survey.

Bloomberg Businessweek counted faculty articles in 20 publications, from the Journal of Accounting Research to the Harvard Business Review and searched The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg Businessweek, adding points if a professor’s book was reviewed there.

Bloomberg Businessweek publishes two rankings as part of the survey: a ranking of 30 U.S. business schools and a ranking of the 18 best international business schools.  As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world to change lives and transform organisations. This worldly perspective and cultural diversity are reflected in all aspects of our research and teaching.

With campuses in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore) and the Middle East (Abu Dhabi), and a research centre in Isreal, INSEAD extends the reach of its business education and research across three continents. Its 145 renowned faculty members from 36 countries inspire more than 1,000 degree participants in our MBA, executive MBA and PhD programmes. In addition, more than 9,500 executives participate in INSEAD’s executive education programmes. With the INSEAD-Wharton Alliance, it delivers MBA and co-branded executive education programmes on Wharton’s U.S. campuses in Philadelphia and San Francisco, as well as on its campuses in Asia and Europe.

Last year, INSEAD celebrated 50 years as a pioneer of international business education based in Europe. Recently it celebrated 10th anniversary of the Asia Campus in Singapore.

In Asia, the Middle East and Europe, INSEAD continues to innovate across all of our programmes and to conduct cutting-edge research. But the core values on which INSEAD was founded have remained constant. These principles have enabled INSEAD’s entrepreneurial spirit to evolve and the school to grow into a truly global force. Today’s organisations need leaders with the knowledge and sensitivity to operate anywhere in the world. This is why business turns to INSEAD – to develop the next generation of transcultural leaders.
