HEC Paris has been crowned the best institution in the world for studying a master’s degree in management in the first-ever QS World University Rankings: Masters in Management Rankings.

New for 2018, this ranking is one of three QS Business Masters Rankings, with rankings also published for finance and business analytics.

One of five French schools in the top 20 for management, HEC Paris ranked ahead of London Business School and ESADE in second and third respectively. All master’s programs were assessed against five metrics and HEC Paris scored full marks for two of these: employability and entrepreneurship & alumni outcomes. The other three metrics are return on investment, thought leadership and diversity. More information about the methodology can be found here.

29 different countries are represented in this inaugural ranking, excluding the various global locations of CEMS which is ranked eighth in the world. The United Kingdom is the most-represented country with 24 schools, closely followed by 21 from the United States.
