Judge Business School-University of Cambridge jumped three spots over its 2015 ranking to claim the No. 10 spot this year. In a press release, the school also noted that it was the UK’s top-ranked one-year MBA program for the fourth consecutive year.

No. 28: Saïd Business School – University of Oxford

The overall No. 1 in the rankings is Insead, with campuses in France and Singapore. In addition to Insead and London Business School, the other schools in the top 5 were Harvard Business School, The Wharton School-University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University Graduate School of Business.

The schools are ranked based on alumni salaries three years after graduation; increase in income for alumni; career success for alumni; alumni recommendations; value for money; diversity of staff, students and board members, the MBA’s international reach; number of faculty doctorates; number of PhD graduates in the past three years; and faculty research and publications.
