Master in Management (MiM) Ranking

Best MiM colleges in the world – Canada, Germany, Europe, USA, UK, Australia, India

 
Master in Management MiMMasters in Management, or MiM, is a rising star among business MS degrees. Being of European origin, it has done well in the recent past in catching on in the rest of world, even the North American university market, usually dominated by the flashier MBA.

The degree serves as a foundation basis for business education, covering the theory of the essentials and even specialisations – marketing, consulting, finance, and more. It is less demanding on work experience requirements and the good programs are a neat way to break into entry-level management jobs with a bang.

For more information, here’s the sign post leading into MiM territory: Masters in Management – eligibility, duration, syllabus, career and salary prospects, as well as advantages and testimonials from students we have helped in cracking the MiM admissions battle.

As with any other international education, MiM too is an education investment. Though not as expensive as the MBA degree, it does demand at least one year of your post baccalaureate time, in a full-time degree capacity.

The resulting Master’s degree is well recognized and employability is fruitful, as has been discussed in the parent article linked above. However, it always pays to have the backing of a recognized business school with a reputed Masters in Management (and its aliases – MSc in Management, etc.) to increase its bankability.

As is true for MBA too, many independent agencies have applied their schemes and methodologies to rank various flavours of Masters in Management, on a global scale. For the present article, we have relied on two credible sources for MiM ratings – the Financial Times’ MiM Rankings and QS World University Rankings in MiM.

The schools listed below, per region, is a representation of MiM programs that have performed well in the past and present. Do bear in mind not to get carried away solely by the rankings (Read Are MBA rankings losing their credibility?).

It is always a good idea to perform your own research and do your necessary bit by checking out the faculty members, resources, location, degree marketability and of course the wisdom gained from networking directly with current and alumni students.

So, let us explore what are the popular Masters in Management degrees in various regions of the world – Europe, Canada, USA, Germany, Australia, UK and India.
