The UK and France are the two powerhouses of business education in Europe, according to Financial Times. Nearly half of the schools listed among the best European universities are from either the UK or France.
French MiMs outperform UK programmes in terms of ranking, salary and student numbers. However, UK MBAs outdo French programmes in terms of numbers and student numbers though not in terms of salary.
Across all European schools, the average salary of alumni three years after graduation ranges from $143,000 for executive MBA graduates to $54,000 for MiM graduates. MBA graduates earned on average $123,000. Spanish and German MiM graduates enjoyed the highest salary three years after graduation, both $70,000 on average. French MBA graduates and Swiss EMBA graduates top their salary scale, with average salaries of $137,000 and $166,000 respectively.
