LONDON, Nov. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Bloomberg Businessweek announced their 2014 rankings of the best full-time MBA programs on November 11th. Hult International Business School placed in these rankings for the first time, debuting at #21 in the international category. Businessweek ranked 112 business schools: 85 U.S. schools and 27 international schools. Hult's One-Year MBA program is now ranked by three of the leading global ranking bodies: the Financial Times, The Economist, and Bloomberg Businessweek.
Hult ranked in the top ten among international schools for employer satisfaction, adding momentum to the school's mission to provide the most global and employer-relevant business education. To achieve this, Hult believes in working as closely as possible with employers to determine the needs of the modern workplace, and continuously evolving their curriculum to meet those needs.
Hult's President Stephen Hodges says of the school's placement in these global MBA rankings: "We're particularly pleased to feature in these prestigious rankings as they are 90% determined by student and employer satisfaction. These are also the key criteria we use to judge how successful and effective we are as a school."
Hult's employer recommendations make it clear that their graduates are well-regarded in the workplace. Top employers, such as Johnson & Johnson and Deloitte, are returning year after year to recruit at all their global locations. In 2013, Hult launched a unique headhunting service, allowing them to match students and alumni to the most suitable openings employers have worldwide.
Businessweek uses three criteria to calculate their rankings: a survey of student satisfaction (45%); a survey of employers who hire those graduates (45%); and the expertise of each school's faculty (10%). Student satisfaction is one of the key metrics Hult monitors closely internally, using student evaluations to measure performance across all services. Students from across their five global campuses currently give their courses an average rating in excess of 4.0 on a 5-point scale.
Hult is the world's most international business school, with locations in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, New York, and Miami. The school offers MBA, Executive MBA, Master, and Bachelor degree programs. In 2014, Hult's One-Year MBA program won the Association of MBAs' MBA Innovation Award and placed in the Top 5 for International Business and International Experience in the Financial Times ranking.
