Detailed findings & methodology: CEOWORLD magazine surveyed 350,00 business executives, graduates, global business influencers, industry professionals, business school academics, employers, and recruiters in 156 countries and territories between November 15, 2021, and February 22, 2022. Ten percent of the interviews were conducted by telephone, 82% online, and 8% by post or face-to-face. All quantitative interviews were conducted on a confidential basis, without relying on institutions’ data submissions.

To establish our list, we collected information and statistics from publicly available sources, research, and survey. Participants were asked to rate institutions on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.” The 2022 Global Business Schools survey was carried out by the CEOWORLD magazine – the website for ​CEOs, COOs, CFOs, senior corporate executives, business leaders, private equity investors, investment bankers, and high net worth individuals worldwide. CEOWORLD magazine ranked 173 MBA programs around the world.

The rankings are based on seven major metrics of quality and reputation. 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

However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while the institutions above are the CEOWORLD magazine’s “best business schools in the world for 2022,” 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 merely one element to consider.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample of 350,00 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.

Not all figures add up to 100% as a result of rounding percentages and excluding ‘neither/nor’ and ‘don’t know’ responses from exhibit. The base for global figures is 350,00 (global respondents) unless otherwise stated. All responses are kept confidential to allow survey participants to share their perspectives in a respectful, truthful, unbiased, and collegial setting.
