La Rochelle Business School records the highest increase in ranking positions

The Financial Times has today published its world ranking of the best Masters in Management (Programme Grande École). La Rochelle Business School rose to 66th place worldwide and recorded the highest increase in ranking positions, moving up some 28 places.
It is the 16th best-ranked School of the French ‘post-preparatory’ Business Schools that appear in the ranking.

  • Ranked 6th worldwide for the international course experience of its programme

A major strong point since its initial appearance in the Financial Times ranking, this year, La Rochelle Business School has recorded a one-place increase for the international dimension of its programme (international course experience ranking). It has moved up from 7th to 6th place in the ranking of the world's top schools and universities.

  • Salaries on the increase

One of the unique elements that makes the FT a world reference is the importance it places on the graduates themselves. In this respect, La Rochelle Business School is proud to see that its average graduate salary, 3 years following graduation, has increased to $54,300, compared to $50,700 last year. Furthermore, their salary increase over the course of their careers (salary percentage increase) is also on the rise, increasing from 36% to 38%.

  • Other areas of strong performance

La Rochelle Business School has been ranked 4th worldwide for the feminization of its Faculty. In addition, the School is in the top third for the international composition of its Faculty and Board.


This exceptional result also vindicates our school’s strategy, in particular the pedagogical model we have adopted, with the aim of achieving the highest international level, whilst at the same time nurturing our differentiating features: a strong commitment to our local region and a strong emphasis on the extremely important theme of sustainable development and CSR.
