over the years as being some of the very best, and with good reason. Typically, they boast high quality faculty, their reputation, over the years, has opened many a door for graduates, and their track-record speaks for itself. However, as corporate funding declines, return on investment and recovery of opportunity cost become increasingly important considerations. This, coupled with the need for greater exibility, ready access to faculty, smaller class sizes, career services, and faculty with real-world business experience, has led many MBA applicants, and the IGF, to look beyond the instantly recognisable global providers. With this in mind, the IGF set about identifying business schools capable of meeting the expectations of hungry applicants the results were impressive. Schools which were selected for inclusion into the European, North American, and Australian MBA ranking tables not only demonstrated the qualities todays MBA applicants look for, they were, and are, capable of challenging the established, globally recognised MBA providers. In keeping with the IGFs commitment to greater transparency, and in line with the changes that have been made to the IGFs ranking process this year, schools listed in the European, North American, and Australian MBA tables have been ranked numerically.
