According to this year's Financial Times Masters in Management ranking, Kozminski University is the only Polish institution and ranks in the top 3 in Central and Eastern Europe among the top 100 business schools worldwide offering management studies.
The ranking clearly demonstrates that studying management in Europe is a wise choice, with a majority of the top 100 institutions being European. Kozminski University stands out not only as a leader in Poland but also as a top-tier institution in Central and Eastern Europe. Universities in this region distinguish themselves in terms of graduate careers, rising salaries, and high international mobility. This ranking allows prospective students to compare various aspects of education, such as internationalization, faculty quality, diversity, and program duration.
Our focus on practical business knowledge, digital technologies in management, ethics, and sustainability sets our studies apart from the competition. While theory remains a crucial aspect of education, it's imperative to stay aligned with our rapidly changing world, closely monitor trends, and distinguish between short-lived fads and enduring principles. Consequently, we develop our study programs in collaboration with industry experts, prioritize the insights of business leaders, and leverage the experiences of other global business universities with whom we maintain strong relationships," stated Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector of Kozminski University.
Management is one of the most popular fields of study in Poland, attracting over 305,000 new students in the last academic year. Graduates of such programs find success in the job market, facing no difficulties in securing employment and enjoying relatively high salaries. Income, professional advancement, and financial well-being three years after graduation are the primary criteria for assessing the quality of management programs considered by the creators of the Financial Times ranking.
Master's programs in management in Poland typically span two years. Choosing Kozminski University allows students to spend one of these years studying abroad, potentially earning two degrees. "Double degree" programs are highly sought after, as they provide the opportunity to shape one's own educational and career path. They undoubtedly contribute to developing intercultural communication skills and the ability to work in international teams, adds Prof. Mariola Ciszewska-Mlinarič, Dean of the College of Management at Kozminski University.
Kozminski University has been featured in Financial Times rankings since 2009 and is the number one business school in Central and Eastern Europe, offering postgraduate studies, MBA programs, and corporate development programs. The university holds essential international accreditations, including AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA, and has received outstanding assessments from the Polish Accreditation Commission for its management programs.
The high ranking of Kozminski University in the Financial Times ranking coincides with the publication of the book "Management: A New Beginning," a reading for anyone looking to deepen their management knowledge. The book was prepared by authors who have combined teaching management with developing its theory for years: Prof. Andrzej K. Koźmiński, Prof. Dariusz Jemielniak, Prof. Dominika Latusek-Jurczak, and Dr. Anna Pikos.
