Kingston MBA ranks amongst the top MBAs in Russia

Kingston Business School’s MBA course in Moscow has been named amongst the best MBAs in Russia in a prestigious league table. The programme was ranked 2nd among 20 Russian MBAs in a league table produced by Russian national business newspaper ‘Kommersant’.

Kingston’s MBA in Moscow has previously been ranked the number 1 MBA in Russia by the newspaper ‘Izvestia’, and by the business journal ‘Company Secrets’.

Highest-value University

Kingston University including Kingston Business School were named in a league table of the 30 "highest-value" universities, following research compiled by international consultants The Parthenon Group.

The research suggests that elite institutions do not necessarily attain the best outcome in terms of graduate salaries. In fact, some modern universities are better than a number of research-intensive institutions at 'adding value' for students by consistently helping them to get well-paid jobs. Outside of  the 15-or-so most elite institutions in the country, a university's location and subject mix have more of an influence on starting salaries than perceived prestige.
