FT Attempts To Rank Best MBAs For Women

With many business schools in an aggressive race to reach gender parity, the Financial Times has produced a new ranking that is sure to get a lot of attention. The British newspaper today (March 5) parsed the data from its latest global MBA ranking to produce a list of the best full-time MBA programs for women.To get more news about china best business school, you can visit acem.sjtu.edu.cn official website.
And the envelope please?
The FT named Shanghai Jiao Tong University the overall winner, followed by Stanford Graduate School of Business, UC-Berkeley Haas School of Business, Washington University's Olin School of Business, and Harvard Business School.
U.S. schools fared exceptionally well in the new ranking, with a dozen American MBA programs in the top 20. Asian schools, however, also managed to stage an impressive showing, capturing four of the top 10 positions. Besides No. 1 Jiao Tong, the University of Hong Kong was in sixth place, Renmin University of China of Business was came in eighth, and Nanyang Business School in Singapore was tenth.
The first European school on the new FT list was ESADE Business School in Spain, ranked 11th, while IESE Business School, also in Spain, came in 11th. London Business School was ranked 16th, while INSEAD placed 23rd.
The strong showing by Asian schools was partly attributed to the purchasing power adjustment the FT makes to salaries for women MBA alumni which accounted for 15% of the methodology. Still, the Asian schools generally showed higher percentages of both female students and faculty-and their alumni generally reported the biggest increases over pre-MBA pay three years after graduation.
The highest average salaries achieved by the women graduates of the full-time MBA programs three years after graduation were at Stanford GSB (7,791), UC-Berkeley (9,930), Wharton (2,489), Harvard (1,587).
Women MBAs from 20 of the 50 ranked schools were able to more than double their pre-MBA salaries three years after graduation. But in some cases, the post-MBA gains were truly spectacular. At No. 1 Shanghai Jiao Tong University, women graduates told the FT their current salaries were 224% above what they had made before going back to school. At Renmin University of China School of Business, the MBA bump came to 180%, while at the Indian School of Business, it was a 177% increase over pre-MBA pay for women.
U.S. MBA programs where women scored the biggest increases in pay were Washington's Olin Business School (153%), Rochester Simon (141%), Indiana Kelley (133%), Cornell Johnson (125%), UNC Kenan-Flagler (117%), Dartmouth Tuck (116%), Chicago Booth (114%), Washington Foster (113%), USC Marshall (113%), Rice Jones (112%), and Berkeley Haas (110%),
