  4. 4. L’MBA SDA Bocconi scala 10 posizioni nella classifica mondiale del FinancialTimes.Nel Global MBA Rankings 2011 SDA Bocconi entra nella top 10 europea e raggiunge il 28° postonel mondo. Guadagna così 10 posizioni rispetto al 2010 ed è ora l’unica scuola italiana tra le top30 al mondo.SDA Bocconi scala la classifica dei programmi MBA del Financial Times pubblicata lunedì 31gennaio 2011. Il suo MBA, infatti, guadagna quattro posizioni in Europa, salendo al 10° posto, eben dieci nel mondo, collocandosi al 28° posto. Un record storico per una Scuola italiana.Il Global MBA Rankings del Financial Times si basa su 20 parametri, comprendenti i dati fornitidalle Scuole e le valutazioni degli Alumni. Tra i tanti parametri in cui SDA Bocconi conferma dieccellere ci sono l’avanzamento di carriera, la diversity, il successo nel placement e il ritornosull’investimento in formazione (rapporto tra incremento salariale dei partecipanti e spesa dipartecipazione al programma).―Il posizionamento tra le migliori scuole internazionali è un nostro obiettivo primario e questoulteriore miglioramento nella classifica è una grande soddisfazione,‖ spiega Guido Tabellini,Rettore dell’Università Bocconi. ―Questi risultati si raggiungono solo investendo continuamente inricerca, Faculty e didattica di qualità come fa la Bocconi.‖L’ottimo posizionamento nel ranking FT è un’ulteriore conferma dei grandi risultati ottenutirecentemente da SDA Bocconi, unica Scuola italiana in vetta alle classifiche dei principali rankinginternazionali. SDA Bocconi, infatti, ha iniziato il 2011 classificandosi come Scuola n° 1 al mondonel ranking di Bloomberg Businessweek per il ritorno sull’investimento del Full-time MBA, dopoaver chiuso il 2010 aggiudicandosi il 17° posto e scalando sette posizioni nellEuropean BusinessSchools Rankings del Financial Times, aver raggiunto il 5° posto in Europa nel Ranking di TopMBA basato sulle valutazioni delle Aziende ed essere entrata tra le top 20 in quello di BloombergBusinessweek (18° posto al mondo, esclusi gli Stati Uniti).―I risultati ottenuti sono frutto del crescente impegno per rafforzare ulteriormente l’internazionalitàdella nostra Scuola e i rapporti con la business community e le Istituzioni,‖ spiega Alberto Grando,Dean di SDA Bocconi. ―Questi riconoscimenti internazionali consentono infatti ai nostri diplomati divalorizzare al meglio la loro esperienza formativa nel mercato del lavoro, raggiungendo risultatiprofessionali e posizioni manageriali di rilievo in ogni parte del mondo‖. 3
  5. 5. The SDA Bocconi MBA gains 10 positions in the Financial Times’ world ranking.In the 2011 Global MBA Rankings, SDA Bocconi enters the European top 10 and reaches the 28thposition in the world, gaining 10 positions from 2010, and is now the only Italian school in theworlds top 30.SDA Bocconi climbs the Financial Times’ ranking of MBA programs published on Monday, 31stJanuary 2011. Its MBA gains four positions in Europe, rising to the 10th position, and ten in theworld, reaching 28th place. This marks an historical record for an Italian School.The Financial Times’ Global MBA Rankings 2011 is based on 20 parameters, includinginformation given by the Schools and Alumni assessments. Among the many parameters in whichSDA Bocconi excels are career progression, diversity, success in placement and return oninvestment (ratio between the wage growth of participants and participation expenditure to theprogram).―The placement among the best international schools is one of our primary objectives and thisfurther improvement in the ranking gives us great satisfaction‖, Guido Tabellini, Rector ofUniversità Bocconi, explains. ―These results are reached only by investing constantly in research,Faculty and quality didactics‖.The great placement in the FT ranking is a further confirmation of the amazing results achievedrecently by SDA Bocconi, the only Italian School on the top of the charts of main InternationalRankings. SDA Bocconi has started 2011 by placing first in the world in the BloombergBusinessweek Ranking for Full-Time MBA Return On Investment, and ended 2010 reaching the17th position in the Financial Times’ Best European Business Rankings, gaining seven positions,as well as entering the top 20 in the general Bloomberg Businessweek Ranking (18th position inthe world, United States excluded). In addition, SDA Bocconi reached 5th position in Europe in theTop MBA Ranking based on the assessments of Firms.―The accomplishments achieved are the result of the growing commitment to reinforce theinternationality of our School and the relationship with the business community and Institutions‖,Alberto Grando, Dean of SDA Bocconi, explains. ―These international awards allow our graduatesto enhance their training experience in the labor market, achieving professional accomplishmentsand outstanding management positions in every part of the world‖. 4
  6. 6. The global MBA ranking decoded.To take part in the FT ranking, schools must have run a full-time MBA for four years and graduatedtheir first class at least three years ago. (Classes must have 30 or more students.) European or USschools must be accredited by international bodies such as AACSB International, Equis or theAssociation of MBAs.The ranking is based on data from two main sources: alumni and schools. A total of 158 businessschools met the criteria and completed a survey. More than 21,000 alumni of the class of 2007were asked to complete a survey, and more than 9,200 responses were submitted. The FTsurveys graduates three years after completion of an MBA to assess its effect on careerprogression and salary. Fifty schools were excluded because of insufficient alumni data (at least 20responses if the class is smaller than 100, otherwise 20 per cent). The rest were ranked, and thetable shows the top 100.Three main areas are analysed: alumni salaries and career development, the diversity andinternational reach of the school and its MBA, and the research capabilities of each school.Within these areas, 20 criteria are used to determine the ranking. Eight are based on data fromalumni questionnaires, including ―Weighted salary (US$)‖, ―Placement success rank‖, ―Alumnirecommend rank‖ and ―International mobility rank‖. The figures for seven of these eight criteria arebased on data collected by the FT over three years. The information gathered for the 2011 MBAsurvey carries 50 per cent of the total weight. Data from the 2010 and 2009 rankings carry 25 percent, respectively. Except for salary details, if only two years’ worth of data are available, theweighting is split 60:40 if the information is from 2010 and 2009, or 70:30 if it is from 2010 and2008 (where a programme did not make the top 100 in 2009).For salary data, the weighting is 50:50 (the latest data are likely to be higher than previous yearsand may distort the average). ―Value for money‖ is based on the 2011 MBA figures only.The first three criteria examine alumni salaries and include the two most heavily weightedcomponents of the ranking: ―Weighted salary (US$)‖ and ―Salary percentage increase‖. Togetherthese contribute 40 per cent of the rank for each school.For all salary data, full-time students and salary data of alumni in the non-profit and public servicesectors are removed. International Monetary Fund purchasing power parity rates are used toconvert the remaining data to US$ PPP-equivalent figures. The highest and lowest salaries areexcluded before schools’ average salaries are calculated. For larger schools, the average salary isweighted to reflect variations between sectors. The weights are derived by calculating thepercentage of respondents in each sector. This breakdown is then used to calculate an overallaverage school salary, which includes average salaries for each sector. Salary data on the tableare all US$ PPP-equivalent figures. 5
  7. 7. The salary percentage increase is calculated according to the increase in the average US$ PPPsalary for each school from before alumni started the MBA until 2010 (four or five years).Eleven ranking criteria are based on data from schools, including ―Employed at three months‖ andall criteria from ―Women faculty‖ to ―International board‖ and from ―International experience rank‖ to―FT doctoral rank‖.For the final column, ―FT research rank‖, papers written by faculty in 45 academic and practitionerjournals over the past three years are counted. Schools are awarded points per number of papers.The mark is weighted for faculty size. The research rank contributes 10 per cent of the final score.A Z-score is compiled for each column to account for the differences in score between each schoolin that column and the spread of scores between the top and bottom school. The Z-scores areadded up to give a total score for each school.Copyright The Financial Times Limited 2011. You may share using our article tools.

  13. 13. SDA Bocconi, lMBA migliore al mondo per il ritorno sullinvestimento.12 gennaio 2011Con un tempo medio di 2.25 anni lMBA di SDA Bocconi risulta 1° al mondo per velocità direcupero dellinvestimento in formazione MBA.Il programma si classifica primo al mondo nel ranking internazionale di BloombergBusinessweek che calcola il l tempo medio impiegato dai diplomati per recuperare il costo dipartecipazione all’MBA.Con un tempo medio di 2.25 anni l’MBA di SDA Bocconi risulta 1° al mondo per velocità direcupero dell’investimento in formazione MBA. Ad affermarlo è il nuovo ranking di BloombergBusinessweek cui hanno partecipato tutte le più importanti Businesss School internazionali. Ilcalcolo si basa sul confronto fra il costo complessivo del programma e l’incremento salarialeottenuto dai diplomati.―Questo risultato mostra come il nostro MBA sia una scelta efficace, capace di coniugare unaformazione di alta qualità mirata ad un rapido e fruttuoso rientro nel mercato del lavoro, grazieanche agli eccellenti e molteplici rapporti che la scuola intrattiene lavoro con i recruiters,‖commenta Alberto Grando, Dean di SDA Bocconi School of Management.Con questo piazzamento SDA Bocconi, unica Scuola italiana presente in tutti i più importantiranking internazionali, prosegue nei risultati positivi ottenuti nel 2010. 12
  14. 14. SDA Bocconi, the Best MBA in the World in Terms of Return on Investment.The program is first in the Bloomberg Businessweek rankings for the average time graduatesneed to recoup tuition.With an average time of 2.25 years, the SDA Bocconi MBA places 1st in the world as theinvestment in MBA training which pays itself back most quickly. This is according to BloombergBusinessweek’s new ranking of return on investment (ROI, the average time graduates need toearn back tuition fees) for the best MBA programs around the world.The result was reached by dividing expenses (including the cost of the program, room andboard expenses and the absence of the average salary during the attendance period) by theaverage increase in salary after graduating from the MBA."This result illustrates that our MBA is a great choice, combining a high quality education with aquick and profitable reentry into the job market, thanks in part to various excellent relationshipsthat the school has with recuiters and the business world," said Alberto Grando, Dean of SDABocconi.With this placement, SDA Bocconi, the only Italian school on all the major internationalrankings, continues to add to the positive results obtained in 2010. In business school rankings,SDA placed 17th in Europe in the Financial Times rankings, climbing seven spots, and is nowincluded in the Bloomberg Businessweek rankings placing 18th for schools outside the UnitedStates. 13
  15. 15. The hits just keep coming for the MBA Class of 2010.First, the economy crashed just as students were stepping into their first B-school classes. Thenthe job market tanked. Jobs were scarce, salaries dipped, and students scrambled simply tofind summer internships, let alone full-time positions. Now, a new study done as part ofBloomberg Businessweeks ranking of top full-time MBA programs suggests its going to takegraduates longer to see a return on their MBA investments than their peers did from earliergraduating classes.Two years ago, Bloomberg Businessweek calculated that it would take members of the MBAClass of 2008 an average of 5.6 years to recoup their MBA investment. For the Class of 2010,the number jumped to 6.5 years. Why the difference? First, post-MBA salaries were lower in2010 (down 6 percent from the 2008 average), while pre-MBA salaries were higher, meaningthe pay differential between what a grad made before and after earning the degree was not aslarge. In addition, the overall cost of attending B-school increased, putting the Class of 2010 in aless-than-ideal climate to begin earning a return.The MBA ROI figure was calculated using a few different data points. First, the total dollaramount the average student spends on a degree (tuition, fees, living expenses) was added tothe total salary given up to attend B-school. The median pre-MBA salary was then subtractedfrom the median post-MBA salary, and the difference was divided into the total amount spent onthe MBA. The resulting number represents the length of time, in years, it will take the averagestudent to make a return on their investments.European B-schools in the LeadBased on this calculation, it will take members of the MBA Class of 2010 anywhere from twoand a quarter years to more than 14 years to recoup their money, depending on the school. Thedata arent perfect: They do not take into account annual salary increases, bonuses, or stock-based compensation. But the numbers do give prospective students an idea of what kind ofreturn grads from the top MBA programs can expect.At the top of the list for best MBA ROI are five European B-schools, with Milans SDA Bocconi(SDA Bocconi Full-Time MBA Profile) leading the way. At Bocconi, it takes students justover two years to move into the black, thanks mostly to the fact that it only takes oneyear to earn the degree, compared with the two-year commitment that most U.S.programs require. This means less time away from the workforce and a lower total cost.The next three schools—HEC-Paris (HEC Full-Time MBA Profile), Manchester Business School(Manchester Full-Time MBA Profile), and Cranfield School of Management (Cranfield Full-TimeMBA Profile)—also allow students to graduate in less than two years, and each requires fewerthan three years to begin generating a return on the B-school investment.Good Showing by State Schools 14
  16. 16. The U.S. MBA programs that fare the best are predominantly those at state schools. TexasA&Ms Mays Business School (Mays Full-Time MBA Profile) gains the fastest return, in justunder three and a half years. Mays benefits by being one of the few U.S.programs that is a yearand a half in length, so the total expenses, at just under $70,000, are considerably lower than atmost other U.S.schools.Michigan States Broad College of Business (Broad Full-Time MBAProfile), where grads get a 145 percent salary jump after B-school, on average, and the Collegeof Business at the University of Illinois (Illinois Full-Time MBA Profile), also have strongshowings in the ROI calculation.Interestingly, the schools that suffer most in the ROI ranking are the top U.S. programs. Gradsfrom the top five schools in Bloomberg Businessweeks full-time MBA ranking will need anaverage of 10 and a half years to achieve a return on their investment. Why so long? Theseprograms generally have the highest tuition costs, and they also attract applicants with high pre-MBA salaries, two negatives in the ROI calculation. The average pre-MBA salary at suchschools as the University of Chicagos Booth School of Business (Booth Full-Time MBA Profile)and Harvard Business School (HBS Full-Time MBA Profile)—where students earn on averagemore than $80,000 before starting their programs—is higher than many graduates earn afterthey graduate.True, grads from these elite B-schools graduate with salaries north of six figures and with high-powered alumni networks that will propel their careers forward for decades. But the actualpercentage increase in salary is not as large as it is at schools with lower pre-MBAcompensation. This is especially important when considering forgone salary over the course ofa two-year program.On average, a student at Case Westerns Weatherhead School of Management (WeatherheadFull-Time MBA Profile), gives up a total of $78,000 while in B-school.An MBA at StanfordsGraduate School of Business (Stanford Full-Time MBA Profile) forgoes more than twice asmuch ($170,000). When you consider that the total B-school costs at top schools can easilyeclipse $300,000, it makes sense that it would take longer for a grad at a school such asStanford to recoup the costs associated with the degree.As the job market rebounds and MBA salaries get back to prerecession levels, the time it takesMBA grads to earn a return on their investment is expected to decrease. Until then, patience willbe a virtue. 15

  23. 23. European economies are recovering following the credit crunch, yet MBA demand hasremained relatively strong, and the numbers of employers in Europe responding to our surveywas at record levels in 2010/11. Katty Ooms Suter, director of marketing, admissions andcareer services at IMD in Switzerland, observes that MBA recruiting ―has definitely taken a stepforward compared to the previous two years.‖ She adds ―pretty much all companies contactedby IMD in 2010/11, across many industries, are keen to recruit MBAs in small amounts… forspecific needs or open positions rather than generic talent recruiting.‖ Read on >Ursula Schwarzmann, staffing manager at GE Energy Europe says, ―In 2009 we filledapproximately 1,300 jobs. Our staffing goal for 2010/11 is trending in the same direction. In theyear to date we’ve already filled approximately 1,000 positions. We are experiencing a verydynamic hiring trend. Last year 15-20% of all new hires were for entry-level positions (MBA orMasters).‖Europe now hosts an array of top MBA programs and is challenging the hegemony of topbusiness schools in North America with a different teaching style and, generally, one-yearprograms. Europe’s oldest business school, INSEAD, opened its doors to the first intake ofstudents in 1957 and was followed by the establishment of London Business School andManchester Business School in 1964. After a relatively slow adoption of MBA studies in Europefor the first 40 years after the Second World War, the last 20 years has seen an explosion in thenumber of schools and the continent now hosts MBA programs in practically all of its countries.The key, according to the continent’s professional recruitment companies, seems to be theproduction of graduates who have solid pre-school experience and who can hit the groundrunning with their new employer. ―As markets in Europe get tougher, organizations are lookingfor immediate results,‖ says Graeme Read, group managing director at international recruiter,Antal. ―That means candidates who have a track record of achievement in their field. An MBA ishighly valued, but not if it’s all an individual has to offer.‖In 2010/11, INSEAD and London Business School remain the top business schools amongstinternational employers and receive as much or more interest than their leading UScounterparts. Spanish schools also feature very prominently with ESADE, IESE and IEBusiness School all appearing within the cluster of 12 European schools achieving more than20% of employer votes in 2010/11. They are joined by Oxford, SDA Bocconi, HEC Paris, IMD,Cranfield, Cambridge and RSM.The 2nd cluster of top business schools in Europe all exceeding 10% of employer votesincludes; Warwick, Imperial, ESSEC, Manchester, Copenhagen, Edhec, Cass, EM Lyon andand MIP Politecnico di Milano. These schools have all established a strong franchise withEuropean-based recruiters though have achieved less recognition in Asia or North America,compared to the schools above them.The 3rd cluster of top business schools in Europe achieve between 8% and 9.9% of employervotes and includes; CEU, Warsaw University of Technology Business School, AUEB and 22
  24. 24. Ashridge. British business schools always feature prominently amongst employer choices and2010/11 was no exception. Within the top 200 schools there are no less than 23 UK schools (uptwo from the previous report); LBS, Oxford, Cranfield, Cambridge, Warwick, Imperial,Manchester, Cass, Ashridge, Henley, Aston, Bradford, Bath, Strathclyde, Lancaster, OxfordBrookes, Nottingham, University of Edinburgh, Birmingham Business School, Durham,Glasgow, University of Sheffield and University of Leeds Business School.French schools are well represented amongst the top European business schools with;INSEAD, HEC Paris, ESSEC doing particularly well, followed by EM Lyon, Edhec, Audencia,Grenoble, Aerospace Toulouse and ENPC also featuring within the Top 200. ESCP-EAP hasbeen excluded from the results because they now only offer an Executive MBA and part-timeprograms which are subject to a separate evaluation.Although Central Europe as a whole has not reported a significant uplift in MBA demand in2010/11, several Central European countries are hotspots for MBA jobs. Continuing the trendfrom last year, one of the hottest countries is Russia, with a 22% uplift in MBA careeropportunities in 2010/11. With growing international ambitions, many Russian companies areseeking MBAs to open up new markets in energy, raw materials, manufacturing and financialservices. Elizaveta Komolova, an HR consultant with Morgan Hunt in Moscow says Russiancompanies ―are looking to hire more and more MBAs compared to recent years. An MBA isbecoming a default attribute of a successful manager.‖ There remains a shortage of qualityMBA programs within Russia with the new business school – Skolkovo – immediately attractingemployer attention (Skolkovo is excluded from our survey because it has yet to graduate a full-time MBA class, though it has graduated EMBA classes). Within the region as a whole, CEU(Hungary), Warsaw University of Technology (Poland), Athens University of Economics andBusiness, Alba (Greece) and Corvinus (Hungary) all feature in the Top 200.Swiss business schools are also increasingly popular with employers. In Switzerland, IMDalways features amongst the top 10 business schools in Europe, while University of St Gallenhas been rising steadily. Business School Lausanne, European University and University ofGeneva Internationals MBAs also make the top 200 (HEC Lausanne has been excludedbecause it only offers a part-time MBA in 2010/11).German business schools have developed a growing following of employers although theseschools are relatively young and still proving their credentials to many employers. A sample of22 companies in Germany indicated a 4% rise in MBA demand in 2010/11. The Germaneconomy is usually the engine of MBA demand in Western Europe. Strong demand for Germangoods in Asia in particular, has fuelled a demand for Asian MBAs to join German companies.Likewise, many service companies are desperate to recruit German MBAs to serve theirsuccessful German clients. The German schools that featured in the Top 200 this year include:EBS, WHU, ESMT, Mannheim, GISMA, and Leipzig.New entrants amongst the 67 Top Business Schools in Europe in 2010/11 include; MIB (basedin Trieste, serving primarily the Balkan, Austrian, Slovenian and Italian markets), Oxford BrooksUniversity Business School, European University (based in Switzerland, Spain as well as anoptional rotational MBA program with campuses in North America and Asia as well, specialisingin family business and innovation), Birmingham Business School, University Nova de Lisboa(offering an MBA in partnership with MIT), ENPC, and Leeds University Business School.Employers’ top 10 preferred business schools in Europe are: INSEAD, London BusinessSchool, Oxford, IESE, SDA Bocconi, ESADE, HEC Paris, IMD and IE Business School. 23

  33. 33. The 2010 Financial Times European business school ranking sees HEC Paris come first onceagain. Despite challenges from old adversaries and newcomers alike, the grande école hasbeen Europe’s top school for five years in a row. London Business School is ranked second andInsead third.HEC’s continued domination of the ranking – a combination of the five business school rankingspublished annually by the FT – is partly explained by its range of expertise: it is one of only fiveschools to feature in all of the FT rankings in 2010. The quality of its programmes is apparent.Each is ranked in the top 10 in Europe, including a top place for the customised programmesthe school designs to business clients’ specifications.HEC forms part of the Trium executive MBA programme – in which it collaborates with theLondon School of Economics and Political Science and the Stern School of Business at NewYork University – is second among programmes involving European schools in the globalEMBA rankings. It is also the second European school in the global masters in managementrankings.According to one masters in management alumnus, a degree from HEC is invaluable in the jobmarket. ―HEC is recognised as a quality brand in the financial world,‖ he says.The experience of his peers from the class of 2007, surveyed as part of the FT 2010 ranking,support this claim. When asked about achievement of various personal goals following theirdegree, including career progression, international mobility and earnings, 82 per cent ofgraduates responded that they had accomplished their aims. This is perhaps not surprising,given the comments of another alumnus: ―HEC Paris is the school of reference in France. Itopens any door.‖The Paris-based school has not had things all its own way in 2010. The loss of the number-onespot in the masters in management ranking is a notable example. Having missed out to theCems programme in 2009 (a global alliance of 25 business schools not eligible for theEuropean schools ranking), HEC found itself relegated to third in 2010. The top spot was takenby ESCP Europe, edging out its rivals thanks to high scores for its internationalism. This rise tothe top, coupled with a re-entry in the ranking of customised programmes, has helped ESCP toseventh place in the overall European table, up five from last year.Another notable climber in 2010 is the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. Havingmade its debut in the executive MBA ranking this year, ranked 15th of the European schools,Saïd climbed seven places to reach 11th position in the combined ranking.It is a similar story for Universität St Gallen. The Swiss school entered the top 10 in the mastersin management ranking and jumps 14 places in the European league table to finish 16th thisyear. Another school to break into the top 20 is SDA Bocconi at number 17, up seven placesfrom last year.Since the inaugural European business school ranking in 2004, the number of schools in theclassification has increased each year. The 75 schools featured in 2010, spanning 21 European 32

The UK emerges asthe primary location for schools in the ranking, with 21 out of the 75 having a presence there.France is not far behind, with 18 schools in total.New entries include the European School of Management and Technology, at joint 45th thanksto its listing in both the custom and open executive education rankings. Aarhus School ofBusiness at Aarhus University makes its debut at number 69 thanks to its masters inmanagement programme. Overall, the masters in management degree remains the mostcommon programme among European schools in the FT ranking. Fifty-eight schools have aranked masters degree, compared with 32 schools with an MBA and 34 with an executive MBA.Copyright The Financial Times Limited 2010. You may share using our article tools.
