To achieve this outstanding result, INSEAD scored very high across several of the FT ranking categories, including alumni career progress, international diversity and idea generation.
In 2016, INSEAD became the first school with a one-year MBA programme to take the #1 spot in the history of the FT rankings. INSEAD is one of only five schools to top the Financial Times MBA rankings. We share this distinction with Harvard, Stanford, Wharton and London Business School.

“We are honoured that our MBA programme ranks #1 again this year,” said INSEAD Dean Ilian Mihov, “This recognition is a testimony to the efforts and accomplishments of our entire INSEAD community: our successful alumni, our world-class faculty and exceptional staff who deliver a transformational MBA experience for all students. We are grateful to our dedicated alumni, donors and friends around the world, whose contributions and expertise take our school to even greater heights.”

Dean Mihov added, “We are especially proud of our alumni, a diverse group of value-driven business leaders and entrepreneurs who make a difference and change the world every day.” INSEAD has an extensive and influential global alumni network with more than 52,000 alumni representing 156 nationalities from 169 countries.


“We are humbled to be recognised as the leading MBA programme in the world for the second consecutive year,” said Urs Peyer, INSEAD Dean of Degree Programmes. “Bringing together talented people from all over the world creates a unique learning and networking environment. It is inspiring to see that the success of our alumni and impact of our research led to this outstanding result.”

In this complex and constantly changing world, INSEAD brings to the classroom not only analytical skills but new approaches to global challenges. This year, INSEAD will roll out a new MBA curriculum that offers students a more personalised learning journey including a leading-edge digital start and a culminating capstone project.

In addition to INSEAD’s #1 MBA position, our Global EMBA is also the highest single-school programme in the “FT EMBA ranking 2016”. INSEAD is the only school in the world to have two EMBA programmes ranked in the top five.
These achievements add to the list of accolades that INSEAD has gathered, including being recognised by Forbes as “the highest return on investment” MBA programme in the world.
Known globally as a prominent ranking of business schools, the Financial Times ranking methodology is based on several parameters including:

  • Weighted salary: salary of alumni 3 years after graduation.
  • Salary increase: salary increase achieved by alumni after 3 years.
  • Value for money: calculated using the salary earned by alumni, course length, fees and other costs, including the opportunity costs of not working for the duration of the course.
  • Research rank: number of articles published by the school’s faculty in selected academic journals.
  • Alumni recommend rank: calculated according to where alumni of all top MBA programmes would look to recruit MBA graduates.



As one of the world’s leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to change lives and to transform organisations. A global perspective and cultural diversity are reflected in all aspects of our research and teaching.

With campuses in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore) and the Middle East, INSEAD’s business education and research spans three continents. Our 145 renowned Faculty members from 40 countries inspire more than 1,400 degree participants annually in our MBAGlobal Executive MBA specialised master’s degrees (Executive Master in FinanceExecutive Master in Consulting and Coaching for Change) and PhD programmes. In addition, more than 11,000 executives participate in INSEAD’s executive education programmes each year.

In addition to INSEAD’s programmes on our three campuses, INSEAD participates in academic partnerships with the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia & San Francisco); the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University near Chicago; the Johns Hopkins University/SAIS in Washington DC and the Teachers College at Columbia University in New York; and MIT Sloan School of Management in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In Asia, INSEAD partners with School of Economics and Management at Tsinghua University in Beijing and China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai. INSEAD is a founding member in the multidisciplinary Sorbonne University created in 2012, and also partners with Fundação Dom Cabral in Brazil.

INSEAD became a pioneer of international business education with the graduation of the first MBA class on the Fontainebleau campus in Europe in 1960. In 2000, INSEAD opened its Asia campus in Singapore. And in 2007 the school began an association in the Middle East, officially opening the Abu Dhabi campus in 2010.

Around the world and over the decades, INSEAD continues to conduct cutting edge research and to innovate across all our programmes to provide business leaders with the knowledge and sensitivity to operate anywhere. These core values have enabled us to become truly “The Business School for the World.

INSEAD’s MBA programme is ranked #1 by the Financial Times in 2016 and 2017.

Corriere della sera – Nell’area ex Expo una scuola del saper fare italiano

(m.s.s.) Nascerà nell’area ex Expo una scuola del saper fare italiano, completamente nuova. L’idea si sta trasformando in progetto, ha anticipato Andrea lliy, presidente di Altagamma, che ieri ha presentato l’iniziativa parlando nel corso del­l’incontro «Mercato del lusso: quali scenari di evoluzione futura?» organizzato da Luigi Gubi­tosi, presidente degli Alumni Insead, nella sede di Boston consulting group a Milano. Con Illy, Eraldo Poletto, il manager che da agosto prende­rà la guida di Ferragamo, e Nicola Pianon, senior partner di Bcg. Ed è stato chiaro che la sfida, con la S maiuscola, per le imprese del lusso del pros­simo decennio è quella dei consumatori, tanto cambiati in poco tempo. Negli Usa, fatti 100 gli acquisti di «luxury goods», solo il 31% avviene in negozio: il 70% è influenzato dalla Rete, dal web. In questo nuovo contesto l’Italia, e Milano in par­ticolare, ha nuove carte da giocare. Per il 49% de­gli intervistati da Bcg, la città sta diventando più “cool”, di tendenza.

I am very pleased to announce that the Financial Times has ranked INSEAD as the #1 MBA programme in the world. This three-place jump in the rankings is a reflection of all that we value about INSEAD—our diversity, academic excellence, entrepreneurial culture and extensive global alumni network.

Today’s results mark a distinct “Triple First” for INSEAD. We are now the first and only business school to have all three of its MBA programmes ranked by the Financial Times at #1 in their respective categories. In addition to our #1 ranked MBA, the Tsinghua-INSEAD EMBA is the #1 EMBA in the world and our Global EMBA is the highest ranked single school programme.
