This year, the Financial Times’ global ranking for the first time features the International Master in Business and Organization (IMB) programme of the Faculty of Economics of the University of Ljubljana

The Faculty of Economics of the University of Ljubljana is proud to announce yet another success because its “International Master in Business and Organization” (IMB) programme features in the prestigious Financial Times’ ranking of the world’s best “Master in Management” programs.

Its well-reputed international accreditations (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA) means the Faculty of Economics of the University of Ljubljana (FELU) ranks among the top 1 percent of business schools in the world. Although there are many such rankings of universities and business schools, the Financial Times’ ranking is still the most widely recognized in the international business community, with the rank itself proving the programme’s quality and the excellent graduates who are highly employable upon completing their studies. Besides the programme, teachers, contacts with the business community and internationalization, the key elements that influence the ranking mainly include the graduates’ high level of employability and their salary upon completing the study as well as three years later. The FELU is particularly proud of the fact that the programme, according to the criterion of quality with regard to tuition fee and length of study, is acknowledged as the second best of all those qualifying for this prestigious ranking. Being included in the ranking is not only a mark of prestige but also ensures the IMB programme graduates’ greater recognisability in the international labour market, whereas for the FELU it is a certification of its quality and reputation within the international business education community.

Boasting a 25-year tradition, the International Master in Business and Organization (IMB) programme is considered one of the most established master’s programmes in SE Europe. Thanks to cooperation with several renowned international lecturers from America and Europe, it is delivered exclusively in the English language. This programme is intended for young and ambitious students at the start of their business career. Since commencing in 1993, the programme, which in 2018 was completed by the 25th generation of highly motivated and capable students, has been finished by 774 students. Today, IMB graduates are key employees in leading Slovenian companies (Zavarovalnica Triglav, Gorenje, NLB, Mercator, Petrol etc.), while some also work in global multinational enterprises and institutions such as Google, Procter & Gamble, EBRD, BMW, Adidas, Mahle and many more.

The small group of students, close ties with the business world, the world’s leading universities as well as the international environment is vital components that result in the high employability of programme graduates.
