The Financial Times European Business Schools Ranking 2020: Politecnico di Milano’s School of Management among the top three European business schools attached to “technical” universities, and is 41st outright.

MIP Politecnico di Milano, part of the School of Management, makes further gains on 2019, and this year applications to its MBAs jumped up by 13% in Italy.


MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business is delighted to announce that it joins Europe’s best business schools in The Financial Times European Business Schools Ranking 2020.

The School is placed third among European schools belonging to a technical university and, more generally, is 41st out of the 90 schools listed, four places higher than in 2019, where it was 45th out of 95.

Politecnico di Milano’s Business School gains three places in the ranking for MBAs, and is now in 38th place. The greatest improvement was for “Salary increase”, a criterion measuring the rise in earnings three years after graduating. Among the many excellent programmes offered by the School, the standout was Executive Education 2020, with its Open and Customised programmes, both up from 41st to 39th place. Another success is the rise in percentage of “Female faculty” (from 39 to 41%) and “Faculty with doctorate” (from 81 to 83%).

Looking at the ranking of technical universities with a Business School and/or a Department of Management, the School of Management confirms its third place in the classification, behind Imperial College (UK) and Aalto University (Finland). If we also consider generalist universities with technical expertise and a business school, the School of Management is placed 11th.

The School’s place in the ranking is joined by equally important results in terms of student interest. In the particularly complex situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, MIP received 13% more applications from candidates living in Italy, with a substantial increase in the overall number of participants taking MBAs and Specialising Master programmes.

In the words of Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini, President and Dean of MIP Politecnico di Milano, respectively: “Our Business School was able to perform superbly even amid all the difficulties of the year now coming to an end. We are pleased to share our pleasure in the recognition awarded to us by the Financial Times with our ever-increasing number of current and future students, and with everyone who has worked with us day in and day out to help us achieve these results”.
