By Modupe Gbadeyanka

The Business School Netherlands (BSN) has again been rated Tier one among the Global Executive MBA Business Schools rankings in the latest CEO Magazine Global Ranking.

In the 2022 Global MBA Rankings released in February 2022, the BSN International Action Learning MBA emerged sixth among the Tier One European MBA Rankings, while BSN International Action Learning MBA claimed the second spot in the Global Online MBA Rankings.

The CEO Magazine Global Ranking is a global recognition hotly desired by the world’s top business schools. The platform has published its MBA rankings annually for the past 10 years and is peculiar because it is acceptable by world top organizations as a yardstick in differentiating among the ever-widening options of MBA programmes around the globe.

“In an increasingly crowded market, selecting the right business school can be difficult which is far from ideal given the time and investment involved.

“Using a ranking system entirely geared and weighted to fact-based criteria, CEO Magazine aims to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review,” the editors of CEO Magazine said in the report titled CEO Magazine 2022 Global MBA Rankings.

“Business School Netherlands ranks among the best 14 global Executive MBA Business Schools. It ranked number 14 out of 180 Global Executive MBA programmes that were thoroughly examined from all over the world.

“Thus, BSN outpaced over 166 excellent programmes in different continents of the world, in terms of the quality of faculty, learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity, gender make-up and more,” they added.

The Rankings focused primarily on identifying the business schools, which combine the exceptional quality of content, facilitation, and other indices with great return on investment.

According to the report, specific criteria considered in assessing business schools are based upon key performance indicators considered to be of interest and value to potential students: Quality of Faculty (weighted 34.95%), International Diversity (9.71%), Class Size (9.71%), Accreditation (8.74%), Faculty to Student Ratio (7.76%), Price (5.83%), International Exposure (4.85%), Work Experience (4.85%), Professional Development (4.85%), Gender Parity (4.85%) and Delivery Methods (3.8%).

Business School Netherlands is present in the Netherlands but has study centres in different locations across the globe, including Lagos, Abuja and Port-Harcourt.

The CEO Magazine is an annual Global MBA Rankings, profiling MBA, Executive MBA and Online MBA programmes. A complete listing can be found at http://bit.ly/CEOMagRankings2022.
