Management programme rises in prestigious Financial Times ranking
Lund University School of Economics and Management is ranked #57, up 20 notches from last year on Financial Times' prestigious annual global ranking of 100 Master’s programmes in Management.
“With many senior researchers in strategy and management, as well as related issues such as innovation and sustainability, our researchers are heard and seen in the international arena. Their perspectives and ideas are integrated in the programme, which contributes to its high quality,” says Martin Blom, Vice Dean with responsibilities for education at the School.
The Financial Times ranking is based on what alumni on the programmes say about their education three years after graduation.
"An amazing opportunity for our students"
“It is an amazing opportunity for our students, because this proves that they get good international jobs after their education. Since the beginning, we aimed to create a great programme that highlights the challenges of international business development. It is very gratifying that the students want to continue to keep in touch with us after their studies. We would not have been ranked without their participation,” says programme director Ulf Ramberg.
The Master’s in International Strategic Management was launched in 2016, and is based on a long tradition of education and research in strategic management. The programme entered the Financial Times ranking in 2019. It is an achievement to stay on – and even tougher to climb – the fierce global ranking.
"An internationally competitive education"
“The programme’s greatest asset is its students. Admission is competitive and we get very talented and ambitious students who come to Lund to learn about strategy and what it means to lead strategically in a global business environment. It is wonderful to see how the students share their experiences, how they listen to each other and show care and respect in and outside of the classroom,“ says Ulf Ramberg.
“This is strong proof of the effect that talented teachers and students can achieve together. I see it as a further recognition that the School of Economics and Management can deliver an internationally competitive education,” Vice Dean Martin Blom concludes.
