Business School Lausanne Ranks 40 in Best European Business Schools

A Total of 5 Swiss Business Schools Make the QS Top 200 List

Lausanne, Switzerland – 30 March 2009 – An employer choice based ratings system, implemented by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds Limited), ranks Business School Lausanne number 40 among the top European business schools.

This marks the first time BSL receives a rating.  By using employer preference, rather than statistical data to judge a school’s quality, QS allows smaller, private schools an equal chance to rate with larger universities.

With only 70 European schools selected as part of the QS Top 200 Business Schools in the world, Switzerland prominently shows in terms of quality, with five schools ranking.   In addition to BSL, the Swiss business schools listed among the best include HEC Lausanne, IMD, St. Gallen University, and University of Geneva.

The QS methodology used HR managers and managers with recruitment responsibilities at companies around the world to compile a list of the world’s Top 200 Business Schools, including the 70 European schools.  Employers were asked to use the list to vote for the schools offering the best in quality programs.
