Best Business Schools In The World For 2024

Detailed findings & methodology: CEOWORLD magazine surveyed 250,000 business executives, graduates, global business influencers, industry professionals, business school academics, employers, and recruiters in 156 countries and territories between September 15, 2023, and December 22, 2023. 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 2024 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.

The rankings are based on seven major metrics of quality and reputation. The overall Score (100%) is the sum of the following:

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; At the same time, the institutions above are the CEOWORLD magazine’s “best business schools in the world for 2024,” and there may be many other business schools that offer excellent programs. This ranking should not be viewed as the most essential aspect when choosing a business school and are merely one element to consider.

The margin of sampling error for the total sample of 250,000 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.

Not all figures add up to 100% as a result of rounding percentages and excluding ‘neither/nor’ and ‘don’t know’ responses from the exhibit. Unless otherwise stated, the base for global figures is 250,000 (global respondents).

Despina Wilson
I am a senior editor and data journalist at CEOWORLD magazine. My job involves using infographics to report on news topics related to business and policy, with a global perspective. I hold a master's degree in journalism and have worked for newspapers and reporting projects in both the US and the UK, giving me a unique transatlantic perspective. I believe that data can enhance coverage of all news topics. As a contributor, I plan cover a wide range of issues, such as gender equality, climate change, labor, and immigration, using relevant statistics and insightful visualizations.
