The Financial Times Global MBA Rankings methodology uses academic and employment criteria to rank the programs. The weighted salary and MBA salary increase each account for 20% of the Financial Times ranking. The weighted salary is adjusted for business sectors and purchasing power parity rates are used for converting international salaries. The Financial Times MBA Rankings also incorporate Z-scores in the final calculation to rank programs.
