QS Online MBA Ranking 2024: POLIMI Graduate School of Management ranks first in the world for quality of faculty and teaching

In the overall ranking, the Business School, an integral part of the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano, ranks fifth in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and eighth worldwide.


The QS Online MBA Ranking 2024, the periodic ranking by Quacquarelli Symonds on the quality of business schools at an international level, confirms the excellence of the teaching provided by POLIMI Graduate School of Management, part of the School of Management – Politecnico di Milano. Thanks to its International Flex MBA (Master in Business Administration) delivered in digital learning, the business school of the Milanese university ranks fifth in the Europe / Middle East / Africa area out of 34 schools evaluated. Globally, however, it ranks eighth out of 102 programmes. The recognition obtained follows by a few weeks the equally significant one obtained by the Financial Times for the same Master.

From the analysis of the individual parameters on which the QS ranking is based, for the second year in a row, POLIMI GSoM emerges as the absolute world and regional (Europe/Middle East/Africa) leader in the Faculty & Teaching criterion, which includes Academic Reputation (quality of lecturers and teaching measured annually by surveys on more than 95,000 academic profiles worldwide), Faculty / Student Ratio (ratio of lecturers to students) and Completion Rate (percentage of students completing the Master’s degree). In these last two indicators, POLIMI GSoM obtained a score of 100/100, thus ranking first again this year and confirming its best result ever since it has been in the ranking.

In addition to the primacy for the quality of Faculty and teaching, QS recognises the quality of the International Flex MBA also for the parameters Class Experience (value and effectiveness of learning) and Employability (graduates’ return to employment) for which it ranks third and sixth respectively in the regional reference area attributed by QS to the School.

Once again this year, our International Flex MBA is confirmed as one of the best in the world, strengthening our School as a global reference point in higher management education and digital learning,” commented Vittorio Chiesa and Federico Frattini, President and Dean respectively of POLIMI Graduate School of Management. ‘The recognition of the quality of our lecturers and teaching, in which we are first in the world according to the opinion of 95,000 international academic profiles, drives us to continue to innovate our teaching offer. Indeed, our aim is to help train a new type of manager who is not only competent from a technical point of view, but also has an understanding of the human and social dynamics that develop in a company. The awards obtained in recent months motivate us to continue along the path we have taken, reinforcing our conviction that the role of our business school is to train new generations of leaders who, through their work, will be able to contribute to building a fairer, more inclusive and responsible society”.

POLIMI Graduate School of Management has been in the QS Online MBA Ranking since 2018, when it entered it directly in 20th place worldwide. Since then, it has always remained in the rankings, ranking in the world’s top 10 already the following year and remaining there in the following years.
