MBA/EMBA Kingston/RANEPA programs are once again at the top of the rating MBA.SU

The rating is based on the ratings of graduates of the MBA and Executive MBA programs. This year, 1,260 graduates of 2016-2018 graduated from 52 business schools in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Vladivostok took the survey. 34 business schools were shortlisted. According to the compilers, the rating participants represent "about 96% of the national market of MBA and EMBA programs." The information partners of the People's Rating are Russian business media: TASS, Izvestia newspaper, Kommersant publishing house, RBC, Profile magazine, etc.

This is a popular rating. It is based on the assessments of graduates obtained by crowdfunding - with the assistance of business school alumni associations. The business schools themselves did not take part in filling out the questionnaires. The shortlist includes business schools whose graduates have received at least 20 correctly filled out questionnaires. The leading schools are represented by an average of 50 questionnaires. The compilers of the people's rating note that one of the most authoritative world ratings, the Financial Times, also requires a minimum of 20 questionnaires from each business school. The People's Rating evaluates the satisfaction of graduates with training in the main business education programs: MBA and Executive MBA. The quality of education, marketing strategies of business schools, their behavior in the market, business reputation, activities of parent universities, etc. are not evaluated.

The rating is built around four indicators:
  • an increase in income after completing the program
  • career growth
  • business connections
  • personal and professional development.

The grades were given by the graduates themselves - on a ten-point scale. The result for each indicator is an arithmetic mean.
The compilers interviewed graduates two to four years after graduation, because, according to world practice, it is from this time that the effect of studying at MBA/ EMBA programs begins to manifest itself in the form of income growth and/or career advancement.

For several years in a row, the Faculty of international MBA programs of Kington/RANEPA has been leading in the ranking and consistently appears in the first place. Kingston/RANEPA graduates' grades are among the highest in terms of career growth and personal and professional development. Thank you to our graduates for such high scores! Every year we are getting better and developing for you!
