The Economist has revealed its annual ranking of the top full-time MBA Programs in the world. This year, five London schools made it onto the list, with three schools landing in the top 50.

About The Economist Ranking

The Economist ranking debuted in 2002. Since its initial year, the publication has reviewed the top school’s around the world each year. For the 2016 ranking, The Economist surveyed thousands of MBA students to determine why they decided to enroll in a full-time MBA program. Survey topics included quality of the faculty, rating of the alumni network, and educational experience. The other 80 percent of the ranking methodology included quantitative data concerning GMAT scores, graduate salary and gender diversity.
The top London schools were as follows:
