Top 10 MBA Programmes in the World

The illustrious MBA, a qualification sought out by thousands of budding business men and women year on year. And despite some negative press for MBAs the evidence actually suggests that now is a great time to enrol at a business school. The average salary for graduates of AMBA accredited business schools is just over £82,000 a year, and when you look around the world it's a similar story, for example graduates of Harvard Business School earn up to $180,000 a year 3 years after leaving.

Study your MBA at a lower-ranked, and worse still, non-accredited business school and the benefits start to dwindle. So we're here to help. Click through the gallery below for our countdown of the top 10 MBA programmes in the world*:

2. Stanford Graduate School of Business

Accreditation: AACSB

The MBA programme at SGSB fancies itself a rather different prospect to other business school offerings. It aims to take students on a personal journey rather than create the stereotypical MBA. It does this by focussing on 3 key areas: personal leadership and development; critical, analytical thinking; and creativity and innovative spirit. Due to its impressive position in the FT Global MBA Rankings 2017 we'll take their word for it. 

Fees: $68,868 (£52,450) per academic year
