2012 Employer Rankings of Global B-Schools

Global B-Schools

Global B-Schools

QS World MBA Tour recently compiled a report on the world’s top 200 business schools according to employers. The findings are based on a survey of over 3,300 international recruiters for full-time MBA graduates. Employers that focus on domestic hiring only were not included. Employers were asked to identify those schools (out of a list of 500 global business schools) that they found attractive in regards to MBA hiring.

Employers chosen were spread across 20 major industries, with consulting and professional services representing the largest sector. This is followed by banking and financial services and then HR/recruitment services. Other industries include manufacturing FMCG, IT, and energy. (You can view the chart on page 18 of the report for more details. Please note that it is not clear what the minimum number of hires a recruiter had to have to be included in the report)

In terms of geographical distribution of the employers, the breakdown goes as follows:

  • Latin America 33%
  • Asia Pacific 29%
  • Western Europe 20%
  • Africa & Middle East 6%
  • Eastern Europe 6%
  • US & Canada 6%
