The suite includes a first-of-its-kind global evaluation of the best Masters in Business Analytics, alongside two specialized Masters rankings (Masters in Management and Masters in Finance), and a new Global MBA Ranking offering unique insight into the relationship between business school choice and entrepreneurship. The portfolio seeks to respond to the growing demand for specialized business Masters programs from both students and employers.

Masters in Business Analytics [ ]  

- The first global ranking of its kind is led by MIT's Sloan Business School;
- Only 45 programs from ten nations are ranked, reflecting the relative scarcity of this
specialist program. Options for those seeking to study Business Analytics outside the
US (28 of the 45 programs) and Europe are limited: Melbourne's Masters in Business
Analytics program (5th) is the only program outside the US and/or Europe to feature;
- Business schools that typically do not feature in the top 10 of global MBA rankings
succeed in this table: Texas McCombs' offering ranks 2nd, while Minnesota Carlson and
Purdue Krannert also appear in the top 10.

Masters in Management (MIM) [ ]

- Topped by France's HEC Paris, this ranking of a more established course features
122 courses from schools in 29 nations (with one global offering);
- This ranking also offers more diversity, with programs from providers in five nations
among the top 10. No US program is included in this uppermost echelon;
- London Business School's MIM program ranks 2nd, while Spain's ESADE places 3rd.

- London Business School features ahead of 130 competitor programs. It is followed
by MIT Sloan and HEC Paris;
- French institutions are particularly well-represented here, with four of the ten
strongest programs.

Global MBA 2018 [ ]

- Harvard Business School is named the world's best provider, while - uniquely among
global MBA rankings - two French institutions, INSEAD and HEC Paris, take 2nd and 3rd
position respectively;
- 232 programs are ranked;
- The UK is home to two top-10 MBA programs: London Business School (5th) and Oxford's
Said Business School (9th).

QS adopts a unique methodology. The five-metrics used are:

1) Employability, utilizing over 40,000 responses to the world's largest employer
2) Entrepreneurship and Alumni Outcomes - an indicator not found in any other comparable
table. It is derived from careful analysis of the educational profiles of 49,000
highly-successful individuals across sectors, nations, and industries;
3) Return on Investment;
4) Thought-Leadership;
5) Diversity. 

Nunzio Quacquarelli, QS's CEO, said: "Nearly three decades of close interaction with the business education sector have left us strongly-placed to provide the insights of most value to aspiring MBA and Masters students. We're confident this is a needed and innovative perspective on business school performance, and that our student audience will find the data complimentary to that provided by other sources."
