MSM ranked First in Top Business School Rankings 2013

MSM is proud to maintain its #1 place among the Top Business Schools (4 Palmes) in both the Netherlands and worldwide, according to the latest Eduniversal Ranking.
The 2013 Eduniversal Business Schools ranking was revealed at the 6th Eduniversal World Convention, held from 9th to 12th October at the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore, India.

The Eduniversal Palmes indicate the international reputation level of an academic institution. They are awarded on the basis of the research work carried out by the International Scientific committee, which compiles the list of internationalization criteria, together with the assessments made by peers: The Deans’ Vote.

Internationalization Criteria:
• The accreditations obtained by the schools (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA, State Qualification, etc.)
• The main rankings (Financial Times, Shanghai Jiao Tong, Business Week, Asiaweek, Wall Street Journal, America savings, THES, SMBG, etc.)
•  The membership in international academic associations (EFMD, CLADEA, CEEMAN, EMBA, AAPBS, etc.)
•  The network of partnerships of Deans and Business Schools at international and local levels
•  The notable studies and websites in the world of education and universities

Deans’ Vote
Deans from the top 1,000 business schools are each asked to vote for other academic institutions; this vote is converted into a ‘recommendation rate’ that students can use to compare and assess academic institutions.

The Palmes
The EDUNIVERSAL Official Selection of the 1,000 Best Business Schools worldwide is the work result of the Eduniversal International Scientific Committee (ISC) that has established a global mapping system meeting the criteria of universality and the international reputation of each academic institution.
