Two Polish universities in the Financial Times ranking

Management at Kozminski University and the Warsaw School of Economics are among the top 100 courses of this type in the ranking published by the Financial Times. The winner is the Swiss University of St. Gallen.

The studies in management offered by the Kozminski University (ALK) was ranked in 20th place. The university returned to the ranking after one year of absence. Management at the Warsaw School of Economics is in the 59th place. In last year`s ranking, the Warsaw university was 68th. In addition, the CEMS MIM program offered in Poland by the Warsaw School of Economics and taught at 30 academic institutions in the world is in the 9th place.

"Good program, excellent lecturers and international outreach. These three elements are the kind of hardware that every ambitious university must provide" - ALK rector Prof. Witold Bielecki explains this year`s success of the Warsaw university. "We are trying to add software - broader horizons, ethics, and above all the entrepreneurial spirit. The rest is up to the graduates. They are the ones that acquire knowledge and skills and convert them into professional and financial success" - he adds.

The winner of the Financial Times ranking (as in previous years) is the Swiss University of Gallen. In the second place is the French HEC Paris, and the British London Business School is third. The ranking is based on the analysis of a dozen factors including the quality of the faculty, the cost of studies, the careers of graduates, etc. The editors of the British daily, which has been publishing the ranking for 11 years, collect data from surveys sent directly to graduates and universities.

The authors of the ranking emphasize that this year for the first time one hundred universities were included, reflecting the growing popularity of management as a field of study. This year`s ranking takes into account courses taught in 27 countries (mainly European), at which a total of over 30 thousand people study. The first Masters in Management ranking published in 2005 included only 25 colleges, all of them in Europe. Over the last four years, the number of universities included in the ranking has been growing rapidly: from 70 in 2014 to 95 in 2017.
