IMB programme has risen ten places in the prestigious Financial Times’ ranking

28.09.2020Comments are closed.

At the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, we can be proud of our new success, as our master’s programme “International Master in Business and Organisation (IMB)” has risen ten places in the prestigious Financial Times ranking, now sitting at number 77, and thus remains among the best master’s programmes “Master in Management” in the world.

Although there are many similar rankings of universities and business schools, the Financial Times’ ranking is still the most widely recognised in the international business community, with the rank itself proving the programme’s quality and excellent graduates who are highly employable upon completion of their studies. Besides the programme, teachers, contacts with the business community and internationalisation, the key elements that influence the ranking mainly include the graduates’ high level of employability and their salary upon graduation as well as three years after it. This year, we are especially proud of the fact that the programme has risen by as many as ten places and still remains the sixth best of all those qualifying for this prestigious ranking according to the criterion of quality with regard to tuition fee and length of study.

The international full-time master’s programme in management and organisation IMB, with a 27-year tradition, is considered one of the most established master’s programmes in SE Europe. In collaboration with many renowned international lecturers from America and Europe, it is conducted exclusively in English. This programme is intended for young and ambitious students at the start of their business career. This October, the 28th generation of highly motivated and capable students will start their journey as part of this prestigious programme, which is mainly focused on group project work and the acquisition of key competencies through working alongside numerous Slovenian and international companies. After completion of their studies, graduates of the programme nowadays represent key employees in leading Slovenian and global multinational companies such as Novartis, Google, Procter & Gamble, Hilti, EBRD, BMW, Adidas, etc., while some have executive roles in the biggest family businesses (for example Lotrič Metrology). Moreover, IMB graduates are also very much present on the start-up scene, with the exemplary success of the Goat Story.

Being included in the ranking is not only a symbol of prestige but also ensures the IMB programme graduates’ greater recognisability in the international labour market, while at the same time representing a certification of quality and reputation within the international business education community for the SEB LU.

The 23rd generation was the focus of the evaluation in this year’s ranking. Their president, Maja Lotrič, a recognised young manager and co-owner of the family company Lotrič Metrology, commented on this outstanding achievement: “The IMB programme deservedly showed its excellence at the international level. Careful selection of candidates, constant investment in renowned lecturers and the acquisition of competencies through up-to-date projects is certainly a great responsibility borne by the entire School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, and, of course, the director of the programme, Professor Domadenik. All this is acknowledged by companies, even multinationals, which closely monitor ambitious candidates and recognise the added value in their employment immediately after the end of this programme. IMB brings an up-to-date and high-quality educational programme to the Slovenian and international space that we can all be proud of.”

The president of the current 28th generation, Luka Eržen, attested to this extraordinary success: “I can say that regardless of the current situation with the coronavirus, the programme continues to run perfectly smoothly and with no change in its quality. Everyone in the generation is extremely pleased with our start at the preparatory Bootcamp and is looking forward to the official beginning of the programme. Before us is undoubtedly one of the most interesting years of our lives, full of challenges, work on real projects of the most successful companies and, of course, building international relations. For me and my colleagues, those were the key elements when choosing a master programme. Being yet again included in the Financial Times’ ranking and occupying an even higher place than in previous years only further confirms that we have really made the right decision and can be even more proud of our programme.”
