As Accurate as Possible - European Undergraduate Business School Ranking

Hello Guys,

I have seen some completely crazy rankings for undergraduate business school in Europe (would be totally different at the master level), so I thought is was absolutely necessary to create one that makes sense at least for me. I hope it can help future applicants (also in the next few years) apply to Biz School in an easier manner. Peace and let me know what you think :)

Level Superior







Level Good








Imperial (new course next year no one knows its value...)

Level Alright




IE (crazy expensive)

WU Vienna

Aalto business school

BI Norwegian Business School

Universidad de Navarra

Level "OKish"






Good luck!

I know how much you hate French BBA but you cannot not put ESSEC BBA in here (guess it is just a forget) especially if you rank ESCP/EDHEC/EMLyon.

Also think you are missing some UK schools (UCL/KCL/Imperial). Might be worth to precise if you are talking about undegrade diploma on its own are overall opportunities including being target for Msc recruiters

IDK man, coming from EDHEC BBA I felt like you but I actually have quite a lot grande ecole alumni reaching to me (might be biased as I have decent internships). Except for the PAI-like highly elitist places I think things are moving forward regarding the recognition of BBA (not sure if it is deserved when you see the number of dummies getting through)

BBA here, would be better that you go somewhere else and go HEC GE for master, otherwise London is no brainer

Sry what i was referring was more like the general UK unis, if you are targeting a quick path to your career.

Maybe also look at the Germans (Goethe, FS, good bac profiles i have seen from there, but Frankfurt is fcing boring). 

However I do not regret my choice of BBA, life in Paris/France was great, same with London, and you would never find this in Frankfurt. 

The trouble with these rankings is that no one ever explains what criteria are used. LinkedIn BB placements? In which city? QS rankings? Word of mouth? There's too much subjectivity going on. I don't disagree with all, but Warwick and RSM are not above UCL and ESADE. Manheim in the same bracket as Imperial and KCL is nuts. I'd also reckon that EDHEC places more people in MBB and IB (at least in major European cities like London, Paris and Milan) than BI. 

First, and most importantly we are talking about the BBA or BSc in business administration/economics/management depending on the school you mention. There are no ranking for undergraduate business schools so it has to be word of mouth and experience on the field. UCL is not really a management and therefore not even sure it makes sense to include them in this ranking as with Imperial (much more STEM focused). ESADE is good but more for their master in finance, with regards to their BBA both Warwick and RSM bachelor students place much better. Manheim is a solid school in undergrad, much less though at master level. EDHEC BBA doesn't place even one in MBB and IB (even their GE program they would place just a few...).

Another bad ranking, just what this website needed. Hope you enjoyed Coventry and Leamington Spa kid

Your predictions are as good as your rankings: I am not French (thank god for that) and actually had a proper education by going through STEM studies rather than whatever the fuck a BBA even is
