The FT Global Masters in Management Ranking

The FT Global Masters in Management Ranking 2019, which assesses 100 business schools, is considered to be one of the most comprehensive and significant of its kind internationally for Master in Management programs.  The ranking combines data from two surveys. One polls alumni from the universities who graduated three years ago. The other one uses information provided by the universities themselves, such as diversity of the student body or internationality of the programs.

HHL graduate Carolin Schäfer, who now works as Senior Consultant and Co-Leader of the “Digital” practice group at Volkswagen Consulting, says about her time at HHL,

HHL’s management program prepared me very well for my position today as a business consultant. Particularly the group work, the student consulting project and classes like ‘Problem Solving and Communication’ provided me with a clear understanding of what counts on the job. Moreover, I found the Career Service most helpful as it established valuable contacts with top consulting firms.
