In the last years we have seen how Europe’s top Masters and MBA programs are becoming more and more popular. It has been known through the GMAT test-taking data that Europeans are increasingly staying in Europe to continue their studies while Americans and students from other nationalities are increasingly traveling to Europe to get a masters degree.
One of the main reasons for this is that many of the programs in Europe are just one year, while in the USA they take two years, this obviously makes it less expensive in Europe. Other important reason include the level and quality of the courses and of course the city in which it takes place.
In most of the Rankings of TOP MBAs and Masters degrees we find European universities specially from UK, France and Spain.
Let take for example the European Business School Ranking 2012 shown below:
European Business School Rankings 2012 by the Financial Times
In this ranking we find that 4 of the TOP 25 Business Schools are in Spain: IE Business School, ESADE, EISE and EADA.
At the same time we can see that in France there are 7 Top Business Schools, including HEC, ESCP, EDHEC amongst others.
All these Business Schools, which have been highly ranked in the past years, offer specialized Masters Programs, Executive MBAs, Global MBA programs…
Another Ranking by Bloomberg Business Week. Here you will find that most of the schools coincide with the Financial Times’s Ranking.
