LONDON, January 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hult International Business School (http://www.hult.edu/) has climbed in the Financial Times Global MBA Rankings for the second consecutive year to reach 61st place, propelled forward after clinching the top slot in International Experience, vaulting into the top 20 in Careers, and climbing to 5th place in International Business.
Hult is now ranked 16th by the FT for its ability to advance students' job prospects. This measures how effectively business schools transform their graduates' careers, by looking at whether they have secured more senior posts and are working for larger companies than before they began their courses.
Hult also beat all rivals in International Experience. This measure is highly valued by MBA students, since it shows how much exposure to global business issues they will receive during their time at school. The yardstick is based on hard numbers such as the international make-up of the academic faculty, and the proportion of graduates who switched countries when returning to working life.
Stephen Hodges (http://www.hult.edu/about-hult/president), president of Hult International Business School, said: "Hult is rapidly entrenching its position as a leading global institution for educating tomorrow's corporate leaders. Ambitious people who are looking for an MBA that puts them in the world's international business elite should seriously consider Hult."
President Hodges said: "Our high ranking in the Careers section shows the success of Hult's insistence that its MBA program should put business experience on an equal footing with theoretical teaching. An MBA program is not about escaping from your career for a year or two - it's about investing valuable time in accelerating your career."
This two-pronged approach is enshrined in Hult's LEAP method (http://www.hult.edu/mba-program/our-program/LEAP): Learning from classes, Experience through site visits and a broad range of distinguished speakers on campus, and Action Projects - where a company sets a team of students the exacting task of solving a current problem through six weeks of brainstorming.
Hult's excellent record in improving students' careers is based on a highly imaginative approach. Hult advisers work hard to find jobs for graduates at ground-breaking non-profits as well as among Fortune 500 companies.
President Hodges added: "Our first place in International Experience shows that wherever you come from, after you graduate from Hult the world is your oyster. Our five campuses span developed and emerging markets across three continents - allowing students to build contacts across the world."
MBA students can study at three of Hult's five campuses, in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai.
