10 Business Schools You Need To Look Out For In 2019

From Tech MBAs to emerging markets, these are the business schools you should have an eye on this year

Wed Jan 16 2019

2018 was an uncertain year in the business school world—there were falling application numbers at US schools and Brexit and terrorism could yet impact international applications to schools in Europe.

But there are some silver linings. Upstart schools like Asia School of Business and 41 North are attempting to attract students to Malaysia and Turkey respectively, and while Havard saw a 4.5% decline in applications to its full-time MBA, Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado experienced a 10% increase in applications in 2018.

Here are 10 business schools you need to look out for in 2019, and why:

10. Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, Germany

As Brexit makes international students unsure about choosing the UK for their graduate business degrees, students will increasingly look to business hubs in Europe for their studies.

As Germany’s financial center, Frankfurt is set to become a prime destination for international banks in the future, as they look to other European centers aside from London for their headquarters—Morgan Stanley has already revealed that Frankfurt will be the seat of their new post-Brexit European hub.

The Master of Finance at Frankfurt School was ranked the best program in Germany in the Financial Times ranking in 2018, and with Frankfurt’s finance environment set to grow next year thanks to Brexit, there’s no doubt Frankfurt School will see growth in the next few years.

9. Rhodes Business School, South Africa

As BusinessBecause reported in November 2018, entrepreneurship, and good business education, could be the key to creating business success in Africa.

Rhodes Business School is already doing their bit to help entrepreneurs in the country succeed in their pursuits, announcing a new post-graduate diploma in Business Analysis in December last year to address the critical shortage of business analysts in the country.
