The Economist’s Master in Management ranking collected data through two surveys. The first survey was completed by schools covering quantitative matters such as the salary of graduates, number of registered alumni, diversity of recruiters and other information. The second survey was sent to current students and recent alumni, asking them to rate various aspects of their business school.
