The Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) has retained its dominance in the 2017 Financial Mail ‘Ranking the MBAs' annual survey. The rankings place GIBS first in three categories: first choice for graduates, most reputable MBA programme among employers, and a commanding reputational lead compared to its competitors with regard to best overall reputation among employers.
The rankings are run annually by the esteemed weekly business publication, Financial Mail, which focusses on reaching the country’s top business minds. Information was collected from over 1,200 MBA graduates and executives from 300 private and public sector companies. Fourteen business schools whose MBA programmes are accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE), took part of the rankings and were required to provide comprehensive data about their MBAs and associated activities.
The latest recognition of GIBS by the Financial Mail, along with its excellent standing in the Financial Times rankings – for both executive education and executive MBA – continues to reinforce the stature of GIBS within the broader business community.
