A doubly impressive performance by Excelia Business School

Excelia Business School being ranked 54th is a major achievement for two reasons:

  • The school accomplished this even though only two out of five possible rankings were taken into account
  • This year’s ranking features a smaller group of eligible business schools, with only 90 European business schools included, compared with 95 in previous years

The year 2023 once again demonstrates Excelia Business School’s consistently strong performance in the prestigious Financial Times rankings.
