The Official Selection of the 1,000 Best Business Schools rests on quantitative and qualitative criteria. Then, for each country, the chosen schools are divided into five levels of excellence called the “Palmes of Excellence”. The Palme level is awarded to each school according to mainly internationalization criteria, such as accreditations, major rankings, and memberships in academic or professional associations or partnerships. In addition, institutions are evaluated by their peers. This unique step is called the Deans’ Vote and takes into account the expertise of the deans of the other best Business Schools ranked by Eduniversal.
The program ranking takes into account the reputation of the program of which 50% is based on the opinions of recruiters and 50% is based on the level of Palme of Excellence awarded to the school, the salary of the 1st employment, and student satisfaction survey results.
An International Scientific Committee is responsible for the official selection of the best 1000 business schools, monitoring the Deans’ Voting process, and overseeing the Eduniversal Business Schools Ranking Methodology. It is comprised of 11 members: two executive members within Eduniversal, and nine independent experts in higher education. All members have significant experience in the academic world and within their zone.
