Five Best MBA Schools

Not all MBA Schools are equal. The following is a list of five of the Best MBA Schools from around the World.

Harvard Business School (Harvard University)

Probably the most reputable Business School and the most difficult to gain an MBA program place. The list of lecturers and professors reads like a whos-who of management gurus; Michael Porter, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, John Kotter and many more. What more needs to be said?

INSEAD

INSEAD has campuses in Fontainebleau and Singapore as well as a research centers in Israel and Adu Dhabi. INSEAD prides itself on serving a global audience however lectures are in English. It is very difficult to get a place on an MBA program at INSEAD (as it is at the other Business Schools named) and extremely good academic achievements are necessary in order to gain a place.

London Business School (University of London)

The London Business School (LBS) MBA is consistently ranked as one of the world's best. It is not inexpensive to attend LBS however attaining a LBS MBA generally results in significant future earnings. Competition for places on the LBS MBA is fierce and rightly so.

Kellogg School of Management (Northwestern University)

Kellogg graduates are at the forefront of corporate America. Kellogg Alumni include; Steven E. Buller, CFO of Blackrock, Robert Eckert, CEO of Mattel and Steve Odland, Chairman and CEO of Office Depot. Kellogg has a very good reputation as a leading MBA provider.

Oxford Said (University of Oxford)

The positive reputation that Oxford University enjoys is extremely powerful. For the reason of reputation alone the Oxford MBA makes this list. In rankings, the Oxford Said MBA does well however as a global statement there are few better universities to have graduated from than Oxford University.

Asia, North America and Europe are represented by the Business Schools above. The remaining continents also provide some excellent Business Schools such as the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (South Africa) and the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (Australia).
