7 2. Introduction The QS Global 200 Buine School Report originated in the early 1990 a an alternative to buine chool ranking. The rating provide a detailed overview of the mot popular buine chool around the world, baed on detail provided to QS by over 2,000 employer who actively recruit MBA graduate. Without inferring any overall ranking, QS objective i to provide a reource to help propective MBA tudent identify the buine chool from which employer mot actively recruit. The reearch i intended to be of ue to MBA employer, propective MBA tudent and intitution worldwide that are intereted in international buine education and recruitment trend. At the heart of the report i the definitive lit of 200 buine chool from which employer prefer to recruit MBA. Thi lit i compiled from an annual urvey of human reource (HR) manager and line manager with recruiting reponibilitie at companie around the world. Each year, employer recommend new chool to be added to the lit. Thi i then ent to other recruiter to rate. The reearch provide rating of the mot popular buine chool according to two definitive categorie: Regional rating: Africa and the Middle Eat; Aia-Pacific; Europe; Latin America; North America. MBA pecialization* rating: Corporate ocial reponibility (CSR); Entrepreneurhip; Finance; Information management; Innovation; International management; Leaderhip; Marketing; Operation management; Strategy. *MBA pecialization refer to a buine chool perceived area of expertie among MBA employer. Throughout the report the above 10 area of expertie are referred to a MBA pecialization. Global employability: buine chool ranking or rating? The objective of the QS Global 200 Buine School Report i to provide an indication of the employability of an MBA upon graduation. A uch, QS believe a rating ytem a oppoed to the traditional buine chool ranking provide a reliable meaure of the employability outcome of an MBA program. Traditional ranking ae on average 15 to 20 criteria in order to provide an overarching indication of tudent atifaction. Thee vary but are motly baed on general apect: academic peer review, citation per faculty, faculty-tudent ratio, and international tudent, for example. The QS Global 200 Buine School Report only meaure one indicator the employability outcome of an MBA program by region and pecialization.

Thi i derived from employer vote a to which chool they prefer to recruit MBA graduate. Employer and HR deciion maker worldwide are at the forefront of witneing the worth of an MBA. QS believe that they are in the bet poition to judge the value of a buine chool graduate, and have among the mot objective and informed opinion a to which are the bet buine chool. When an HR department elect a buine chool to recruit MBA from, the deciion will often be the reult of an intenive reearch exercie: evaluating the trength of faculty, the facilitie and the relevance of the coure to the employee and the company need. Similarly, when HR manager chooe which buine chool to recruit from, they will draw from a wide 7
8 Introduction 8 range of information ource. They ae the quality and efficiency of the chool career ervice and the reputation of the chool, for example. HR deciion maker look beyond ranking and examine the facilitie, the coure content and the quality of tudent. Year-on-year, thi urvey reveal remarkable conitency in chool election. Allegiance to particular chool i not gained or lot by one good or bad tudent but by a utained experience over everal year. Providing regional MBA rating Management education i globalizing. The pat decade ha een an increae of accredited buine chool open in emerging market uch a in the BRIC countrie (Brazil, Ruia, India, and China).
