MBAs rebound as prospective students flee worsening economy - Financial Times
Demand for places at business school has rebounded, as prospective students flee a labour market battered by the coronavirus.
Data gathered by the Financial Times from 13 of the top 20 schools on its ranking list found that all had attracted more applications for the MBA classes starting later this year than for the same period in 2019.
The jump in MBA applications also ended four years of declining appetite among the top business schools that responded in the US, by far the largest MBA market.
Insead has had the biggest jump this year among the global top 10 on the FT rankings, with a 57 per cent rise in applications on 2019 levels for the coming academic year. Iese Business School reported a 12 per cent rise year on year and a record number of applications for the Barcelona-based institution.
"We had many years of uninterrupted growth but the economic summer is over and it's time to go back to school."
