The University of Miami Patti and Allan Herbert Business School has been ranked 49th in the United States and 93rd globally by the Financial Times (FT) in its 2020 Global MBA ranking of the world’s best 100 full-time MBA programs.

“We are proud to see Miami Hebert’s MBA program once again recognized in FT’s full-time MBA rankings,” said John A. Quelch, dean of Miami Herbert Business School. “This emphasizes our progression as a global institution and the increasing value of our MBA program.”

FT evaluated each full-time program across 20 different criteria such as salary, value for money, female and international representation of faculty and students, career services, employment, faculty research published, and alumni recommendations. For example, Miami Herbert ranked 39th in the United States for faculty research. All participating schools meet the FT’s entry criteria, including accreditation by EQUIS or the AACSB. More information about ranking methodology is available online.

In its analysis of ranking trends, FT notes that despite shifting global demand for the degree, “the MBA is now a truly global qualification, with schools around the world ranked among the best for their residential courses.”

Earlier this month, FT featured Miami Herbert as an innovator in MBA curriculum in an article titled Business Schools Revamping the Traditional MBA. In an interview for the article, Patricia Sanchez Abril, vice dean of graduate business programs, discusses shared ways that Miami Herbert is revamping the Miami MBA program, such as collaborative, interdisciplinary course planning, sustainable business course offerings and adopting a new approach for evaluating student performance.

“This ranking shows that Miami Herbert is indeed at the forefront of business education and reaffirms our commitment to continuous innovation,” said Dr. Abril. “At the same time, we must also continue to capitalize on our distinct resources, networks and location, which differentiate our MBA from other programs.”
