For the Economist Masters in Management Ranking data were collected between March and May 2019, using two surveys. The first was completed by schools, covering quantitative matters such as the salary of graduates, the number of registered alumni, the diversity of recruiters and the like. Schools also entered their three biggest employers and what they consider to be their three main strengths. These were included in the individual school tables. A second survey was sent to current students and recent alumni, asking them to rate various aspects of their business schools. The respondents were also asked to give details of their salary, so that the data provided by the schools could be verified.
To be included in Masters in Management Ranking 2019, a program must meet such requirements as e.g.: have a cohort of at least 40 students for both the current and the previous academic year, have accreditation from AACSB or EQUIS, be of international standing, with a good proportion of international students and faculty, etc.
Each business school received a unique score (known to statisticians as a z-score). This method gives each school an individual rank (it does not allow for equally placed schools). Hence, the schools have been also placed into bands of those whose z-scores are statistically quite close. For this reason, individual school profiles include a banding (A-D), so that schools with similar overall scores are grouped together.
