Moving up seven notches from the 13th position in the 2017, SMU Lee Kong Chian School of Business (LKCSB) has been ranked sixth place in the Financial Times 2018 ranking of top business schools in the Asia-Pacific.

The rankings are based on the quality and breadth of business schools’ postgraduate programmes’.  The Asia-Pacific ranking is a composite measure of the combined performance across the five main rankings published by FT in 2018: MBA, Executive MBA, Masters in Management (MiM) and both customised and open-enrolment Executive Education programmes.

Professor Gerard George, Dean of SMU LKCSB and Lee Kong Chian Chair Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, said, “I am delighted that in a short span of 10 years, our business school has achieved overall sixth position in the Asia-Pacific for our postgraduate business programmes.  The powerful combination of world class thought leadership from our faculty and our central location within Singapore helps us connect and engage with the business community to deliver an impactful education.  Our rankings reflect our commitment to preparing students with right skills, knowledge and networks to succeed in Asia’s growing and dynamic business environment.”

Earlier this year, LKCSB’s MBA programme was ranked 30th globally and first in Singapore in the 2018 Top MBAs for Finance ranking. SMU LKCSB is ranked 5th globally for alumni salary, with graduates amongst the highest paid.
