Kozminski University and its Master in Management program are ranked 39th in the ranking of the best Master in Management programs in the world. Our University is the only Polish higher institution featured in the ranking.

The Financial Times compiles its education rankings on the basis of its own surveys conducted in groups of graduates who graduated not later than three years after each survey. Among the 17 evaluation criteria taken into account by FT, one that is particularly worth mentioning is the progress the surveyed graduates make in their careers. In this respect, we perform very well, ranking 4th in the world.

The rankings feature also our foreign partners. One of them is ESCP Business School, the oldest business school in the world. Our joint Master in Management program ranked 6th in the world.
