While ranking the top 10 MBA programs, we found out that half of the Full-time MBA program doesn’t offer immediate post-MBA salary data but instead uses a 3-year post-graduation data that might not give a clear value proposition for applicants who shortlist programs based on immediate value. We have mentioned the peculiarity of this practice in our table.
Top MBA Colleges in UK
Although the impact of Brexit on access to European talents has not yet been tabulated (Right now the UK ranks #6 for labor market efficiency), the United Kingdom has fallen one place to rank at #8 in the world for Global Competitiveness. The technological readiness, a vital competitive advantage for economies, in a 16-year period, puts the United Kingdom at #1, ahead of the United States, Germany, and Japan, although the debts acquired by the govt. to fund social programs is at an alarmingly high ratio (close to 90% of GDP).
The GDP growth from 2001 to 2016 has been uneven with 2009 shrinking the GDP by 4.18% - the second largest fall when compared to nearest European competitors – France (-2.9%) and Germany(-5.6%), and the United States (2.76%). The correlation with the Global Financial crisis can be attributed to the Financial and Insurance services industry that contributes 7.2% of UK’s total Gross Value added. In terms of employment, the industry maintains over a million jobs (3% of total jobs in the UK) with London accounting for 51% of all the value-add.
