General Methodology on the CEOWORLD magazine’s Employability ranking: The World’s Best Business Schools With The Most Employable Graduates For 2018.
The rankings are based on 7 major metrics of quality and reputation. Overall Score (100%) is the sum of:
1. Perceived Global Brands Influence (20%)
2. Recruiters Responses (20%)
3. Employers Feedback (10%)
4. Job Placement Rate (10%)
5. Admission Eligibility (10%)
6. Specialization (10%)
7. Academic Reputation (20%)
To establish our list, we collected information and statistics from publicly available sources, research, and survey. The ranking measures the quality of education, job placements of graduates, recruiters response, employers feedback, without relying on institutions data submissions.
Graduates, industry professionals, employers, and recruiters were asked to rate universities on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”
However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while institutions above are the “CEOWORLD magazine’s Best Business Schools With The Most Employable Graduates For 2018,” there may be many other business schools that offer excellent programs.
* This ranking should not be viewed as the most important aspect when choosing a business school, and are simply one element to consider.
* The top-ranked business school receives 100 points.
* The rankings are the result of a rigorous analytical exercise, incorporating multiple data sources, without relying on university data submissions.
* Detailed survey data and information collected directly from 125,000 individuals, across 7 data points.
* Surveys completed by 60,000 graduates; 25,000 recruiters; and 40,000 employers (with 1,000 or more employees) around the world.
* The results come from a survey of over 125,000 people in 52 countries.
* We analyzed over 186 business schools during the data collection process.
*The overall score is numerical scores given to the business schools based on students, industry professionals, and recruiter feedback — measuring the quality of the business school. Overall scores are out of 100.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 125,000 respondents is plus or minus 1.4 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that as in all survey research, there are possible sources of error—such as coverage, nonresponse and measurement error——that could affect the results.
