Master's programme SIM-HSG ranks number 1 worldwide in the "Financial Times" ranking

On 12 September 2022, the Financial Times published its 2022 rankings of international Masters in Management programmes, placing the University of St.Gallen’s "Master in Strategy and International Management" programme (SIM-HSG) in the top position for a record-setting twelfth consecutive time.

12 September 2022. “SIM approaches management education differently, and this sets us apart. Our notion of education includes a focus on personal growth and mastery. We intentionally put the question of individual purpose and values in the forefront while providing the students with the business acumen that they will need as effective leaders,” said SIM-HSG Managing Director Prof. Dr. Omid Aschari. “Social responsibility and ethics are an integral part SIM which strives to live up to the University’s promise From Insight to Impact.” 

With an innovative approach in building leadership capacity, the SIM programme attracts students with an entrepreneurial spirit who are committed to social sustainability and global development. It also boasts of a close and active alumni base, the SIM Community, which interacts with current students. This collaborative approach allows students, partners and other stakeholders alike to participate in creating measurable impact at the highest level. 

Based on an annual survey of business schools and their alumni, the Financial Times ranking weighs different criteria ranging from aims achieved, international mobility, quality of faculty, career and salary. The Financial Times analysis of universities has long been a respected voice looking at academic excellence worldwide.

By maintaining the top spot in this year’s ranking, SIM outperformed 100 top educational establishments offering Masters in Management programmes globally. HEC Paris and the Rotterdam School of Management at Erasmus University were ranked in the second and third position, respectively.
