Methodology: CEOWORLD magazine’s best business schools in the world for 2019 is based on seven major indicators of quality, overall Score (100%) is the sum of:

1) Academic reputation
2) Admission Eligibility
3) Job placement rate
4) Recruiter feedback
5) Specialization
6) Global reputation and influence
7) Annual tuition and fees

Data for these indicators were collected from publicly available sources, business institute’s website, and our research. It measures the quality of education, job placements of students, and the recruiters’ feedback, without relying on university data submissions. Students, industry professionals, and recruiters were asked to rate business schools on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 1000 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”

*However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while the 104 schools above are the “CEOWORLD magazine’s best business schools in the world for 2019,” there may be many other outstanding schools that offer excellent MBA programs.
* This rankings should not be viewed as the most important aspect when choosing a business school, and are simply one element to consider.
* Some of the institutions featured in this article are commercial partners of the CEOWORLD magazine.
* The top-ranked 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 90,000 individuals, across 7 data points.
* Surveys completed by 40,000 students, 48,000 industry professionals, and 2,000 recruiters around the world.
*The overall score is numerical scores given to the schools based on students, business executives, and recruiter feedback — measuring the quality of the school. Overall scores are out of 1,000.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 90,000 respondents is plus or minus 1.2 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.
