Kozminski University is the best business school in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the "Financial Times" ranking

Kozminski University is the best business school in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the European Business Schools Ranking published by the "Financial Times" on December 5, 2022. In the list of the top 100 universities from Europe, Kozminski University is ranked 52nd, and in the program carried out jointly with the ESCP Business School, KU ranks a high 3rd.

- Another advancement of our University in this prestigious list is a reason to be proud of our graduates. Their successes translate into how we are evaluated by the scientific community, employers, and journalists - says Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector of KU.

"FT" rankings of economic universities from around the world are based on surveys sent to graduates who finished their schools three years earlier. On the basis of their responses, partial rankings of specific areas are published during the year, and in December, an overall summary of the best schools from Europe is released.

In the Executive MBA ranking, Kozminski University ranked 24th in Europe, while in management education, it ranked 40th. Kozminski's Executive MBA graduates boasted that their salaries increased by 79 percent in three years. This was one of the most significant salary advances recorded among all graduates of European business schools.

The French ESCP Business School has built its educational offerings on partnerships with four universities from Italy, Spain, Germany, the UK, and Poland, where it runs a joint program with Kozminski University. This trans-European project has brought positive results; hence ESCP took 3rd place, after HEC Paris and London Business School.

In the "FT" ranking, Central and Eastern Europe is represented by only three universities - Kozminski in 52nd place (up from 54th a year earlier), Prague University of Economics (62nd), and the Faculty of Economics and Business at Slovenia's University of Ljubljana (69th).

Kozminski has been present in the "Financial Times" rankings for 14 years. As a result, it has become the most recognized Polish business university abroad. In addition, the university's rector has been awarded several times for outstanding achievements in internationalization. Students and graduates from more than 70 countries achieve professional success wherever they work and are ambassadors of Poland, Warsaw, and their University.

Founded in 1993, Kozminski University has been running English-language studies in parallel with programs in Polish since the beginning. Despite the economic crisis and the ongoing war in Ukraine across the Polish border, this year's enrollment was a record one: the University admitted 2,800 new students. Currently, 12,000 students are being educated here. KU has partnership agreements with more than 200 universities around the world. In addition, its researchers conduct international projects with colleagues from Harvard or MIT due to the attention to high-quality research and education provided by the talented research and teaching staff. AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA accreditations provide confirmation. The University is also a leader in ethics, sustainability solutions, and new digital technologies. However, as the most important reason for choosing KU, current students cite the unique atmosphere conducive to developing entrepreneurship and their original interests.
