Here's our short list of the top business schools for Royals!

HRH Prince Faisal Al-Hussein of Jordan
London Business School Masters in Management, 1998


Prince Faisal (son of the late King Hussein) enrolled in the International Executive Management Programme at London Business School in 1996 and completed his Masters of Management in July 1998.

Feisal is the president of the Jordanian Gliding Club, head of the Jordanian Olympic Committee and an avid Taekwando fan. His family have one of the largest collections of private jets in the world.

Prince Maximilian of Lichtenstein
Business Economics degree at EBS Business School, 1993
Harvard MBA, 1998


His family has an estimated worth of $4 billion, yet they are still hiring out their country for $70,000 a night. On your arrival you will meet the King and be handed the symbolic key to the state. You can also have customised street signs and currency.

Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau & Prince Constantijn of Orange-Nassau
Insead MBA – graduated 1998 & 2000 respectively
Both Prince Friso and Prince Constantijn of Orange-Nassau did their MBAs at Insead, in the posh town of Fontainebleau outside Paris (referred to as "Fonty" by insiders).

Prince Friso is a founding shareholder of Wizzair, the largest low cost airline in eastern Europe. A scandal erupted in the Netherlands over his then-fiance’s purported links to a murdered Mafia boss and Prince Friso had to effectively renounce his claim to the throne in order to marry her.

His more straight-laced brother Prince Constantijn works for the non-profit global policy think tank RAND Corporation and has a part-time position at the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs at The Hague.
