In the strategic alliance with the world`s oldest business school ESCP Europe, Kozminski University is ranked 14th.

French HEC Paris topped the ranking, followed by London Business School. Third place went to Italian business school SDA Bocconi/Universita Bocconi.
Rector of Kozminski University, Professor Witold T. Bielecki, said: "We owe our high place in the FT business schools ranking to our MBA graduates, of whom there are already 5,000. This year we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Executive MBA programme.”
Quoted in the school’s press release, he added that many students continue their education at this university`s doctoral and specialist post-graduate studies.
The FT European Business School Rankings is a composite ranking based on the combined performance of Europe’s leading schools across the main rankings of programmes published earlier by the FT: MBA, executive MBA, Masters in Management (MiM) and Executive Education. It is based on data on universities from anonymous surveys completed by graduates three years after graduation. Some criteria concern general study conditions.
The ranking is available on the website.
