Unsurprisingly, the US dominates the ranking with 51 % of the best MBA programs in the world being located there, followed by the UK and China.

For the second consecutive year, the European Institute of Business Administration (INSEAD) leads the top of the ranking, with a staggering 82% of graduates finding employment within three months and earning an average of $167,657.  Based in France and with campuses in Singapore, the ranking indicates that graduating from there is likely to increase salary by 95%- of what they were earning before doing an MBA.

Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Wharton, University of Pennsylvania are second and third respectively.

The ranking highlights the highest jump for the American University of Notre Dame Mendoza which rose 16 places from 76 to 60. We can also notice the Sungkyunkwan University in South Korea climbing 15 places from 69 to 54.

The biggest decline was by the University of Strathclyde Business School in the UK and the University of Minnesota, Carlson both slipping 17 places in the ranking from 63 to 80 and from 71 to 88  respectively.
