Consistently rising! The 36th Best MBA in the World!

Friday, February 20, 2015 - 18:01

The Lisbon MBA International program rose 16 positions in the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking, becoming the 36th best MBA in the World. This means that, for the third consecutive year, The Lisbon MBA is the only MBA in Portugal in the Financial Times Ranking. It was also considered the 13th best MBA in Europe, moving up four positions in the ranking, and the world's second best in international experience. 

Since joining the Financial Times list for the first time, in 2013, The Lisbon MBA has risen consistently, with a total rise of 25 positions. Of all the programs that entered the ranking on the same year, it is the one that is best positioned.

This achievement is due largely to the results of The Lisbon MBA former students who doubled their salary after three years, when compared with earnings before the MBA. These alumni now occupy more senior positions and in larger companies, with many of them working outside their countries of origin. The wage increase also contributed to The Lisbon MBA being considered the third best MBA in the world and the first in Europe in terms of return on investment. 

Being part of this ranking is the ultimate recognition of the commitment of Catolica-Lisbon and Nova SBE – the two best business schools in Portugal -  and MIT Sloan School of Management to develop an MBA program that is a worldwide reference.
