Ljubljana School of Economics gains 15 spots in Financial Times ranking

Ljubljana, 6 December - The British newspaper Financial Times has ranked the University of Ljubljana's School of Economics and Business among the 95 best business schools in Europe for the fifth consecutive year. The faculty moved up by 15 spots compared to last year to rank 69th.

Commenting on the ranking, the faculty, the only business school in Slovenia to have made it to the list, noted that two of their programmes had placed among Europe's best business school programmes.

Its International Master in Business and Organisation (IMB) has made it to the list of the world's best Master in Management programmes for the fifth consecutive year.

Moreover, this year the Ljubljana MBA part-time study programme ranked for the first time among Europe's best Executive MBA programmes.

Vice dean Andreja Cirman said that making it to the prestigious and globally recognized list proved that the faculty was dedicated to reaching their goals.

She added that by providing up-to-date study programmes and a high-quality study environment they were producing well-respected and employable graduates who could compete with their colleagues from Europe's best business schools.

In addition to the improved ranking, the school is also proud of the fact that as part of its dual degree programmes its students have the opportunity to study at four business schools that are also ranked in the list, including French KEDGE and Audencia, and Norwegian BI.

The Ljubljana faculty has also been hosting PhD summer and winter school programmes for a number of years along with the Swiss University of St. Gallen business school, which traditionally ranks among top schools according to the Financial Times.
