Alumni of CEMS, on average, strongly outperform those from all business schools taking part in the Financial Times (FT) 2023 MiM ranking.

Ten CEMS Academic Members schools are ranked in the top 20 and six schools are ranked in the top 10, with HEC Paris and the University of St Gallen, achieving the top two positions.

Nicole de Fontaines, Executive Director of CEMS, commented:

“We’re delighted that the FT recognises that alliances of schools and businesses such as CEMS can offer a different take on the MiM, with advantages for students. The elite CEMS schools are linked by a quality assurance system and students follow a joint curriculum, including working on consultancy projects and completing internships at corporate partners.

“Huge congratulations to all CEMS Academic Member schools featured in today’s FT Global MiM 2023 ranking. We are delighted that so many of our Academic Members have performed outstandingly.

 “CEMS is truly an alliance of the highest calibre business schools on every continent, with half of the top 20 ranked schools members of our Alliance.  Together we work to educate the next generation of responsible business leaders.  This incredible network of partner schools ensures the top quality of the CEMS student experience and exceptional employability of our graduates.”

The CEMS Master in International Management (MIM) is delivered through a global network of 33 of the world’s top business schools in collaboration with more than 70 corporate partners (multinational companies) and 8 social partners.

Due to the nature of its delivery across 33 business schools the FT does not include the CEMS MIM in its ranking. However, a separate analysis within the ranking focuses on CEMS alumni career progression and school diversity. The analysis shows that alumni of CEMS on average strongly outperform those from all business schools and CEMS schools have a higher number of faculty with doctorates than the average among all participating institutions.
