International course experience, such as exchanges, global internships, etc., was another strength for the school, with an overall score of #28.

“We are proud to see the MGB placed for the fifth consecutive year on the FT ranking,” says Sheryl Karras, Director Administration, Pre-experience Masters Programs. “It’s gratifying to be recognized for our commitment to fostering a program where diversity is celebrated, students are offered top-quality international business experience and supported in building fulfilling careers around the globe.”
