ESMT MBA students
ESMT Berlin placed 10th among non-US business schools and 17th globally in the Best Business Schools 2019 ranking by Forbes.

The Ranking compares schools’ full-time MBA programs based on their return on investment (ROI). With an average five-year MBA gain of $81,600, ESMT ranks above renowned American business schools such as Columbia, MIT Sloan, and Cornell Johnson. It is one of only two schools based in Germany in the ranking.

The Forbes ranking is based on the median ROI achieved by the graduates from the class of 2014. The five-year MBA gain represents the post-MBA salary of a typical alumnus after five years minus cost of program and foregone salary. The authors of the ranking, which is published every two years, surveyed around 17,500 alumni from more than 100 schools worldwide.
