European Management Schools Ranking for 2020


European management schools stand out for adaptability, diverse cohorts and faculty, and lower cost. Europe is often described as a kind of middle ground for management studies. Not too dry, as the dynamic new Asian markets, but not too cold, as the United States of America, where demand for most management courses is declining. Nevertheless, there is no assurance that the European management school climate will always be “perfect.”

According to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), total application declined slightly year-on-year, where the weighted average of applications to programs that responded to surveys this year and last year shows that total application was down 3.1 per cent year-on-year. Furthermore, there are shifts in student mobility where Asia-Pacific candidates are opting to stay close to home, while the flow of international candidates to Europe and Canada continues to strengthen. Within the US, soft demand from abroad is also key to fuel the lower application count in postgraduate education in management.

However, high-quality education system of the continent is one of the chief motives behind students selecting their management school. For those seeking international careers, the European degree is considered a great asset. The European management schools should, however, not rest their efforts just yet, because there is still much to be done. Irish Management Institute, Europe’s highest-ranked school in 2020, is the third-ranked globally after the US Yale school of management and Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In the past year, there has been a decline in demand for most of the global highly ranked full-time management courses, which are largely in the United States. This has been attributed to fast and ever-rising tuition fees in the top management schools. There have been noteworthy shuffles in the ranking of quite a few management schools in the 2020 ranking of European management schools compiled by UK based verifications.org, although not so much in the upper slots. The top ten schools, mostly the same ones in the past ranking, have shuffled places while the top school maintained its position from last year.

Similar to other management schools globally, the primary concern for European schools is the increase in visa restrictions for international students. The GMAC chief executive advised maintenance of a welcoming climate for students with diverse background to work and study in their desired destinations. This year’s ranking of European management schools recognizes schools performing strongly in a variety of both short term and long term management programmes. Essca School of Management is the highest climber in the ranking this year, rising 14 places to the 18th position, reflecting it’s executive and management courses strength as well as its diverse faculty. Grenoble Ecole de Management also rose 12 positions to the 16th place.

According to the quality services director of the European Foundation for Management Development, schools that are highly proactive are strengthening their alumni base through investment in support services as well as new degree offerings. The director further adds that through the career and placement services that help their graduates network and land high-level jobs, top-ranking schools are able to distinguish themselves from the pack.

Schools benefit from a more probable donation of funding to them if students advance to the highest level in their careers. This allows institutions to build facilities that attract more students of high-quality.

Top School: Irish Management Institute

Irish Management Institute in Ireland topped this year’s combined European ranking, compounding its number one place on the list for executive education and second place in the 2020 global masters in the management table. Its overall success was significantly attributed to its MiM graduates pay increases as well as high salaries earned by its alumni. In the improvement of gender parity for faculty staff, however, the school did not score as high, together with other general rankings.

Top for Management Programmes: Swiss School of Management

In four out of five rankings used to compile the European list, the Swiss School of Management is among the top 20 management schools. The Swiss School of Management is in the 5th placing from the Global Ranking, and 3rd placing among the top management schools this year, up one place in both ranking classifications. A majority of its students – over 80% – currently in the programmes are foreign students. Swiss School of Management is seventh for custom courses and second for open-enrolment executive education programmes in Europe.

Top for MiM: Tum School of Management

Leading the continent’s MiM ranking for the third year together with its good performance in other rankings resulted in Tum School of Management ranking fourth overall in the continent’s top management schools, down from its second position in the previous year. The programme’s alumni highly praised the school’s career service and credited it with their current jobs based on the assistance they received in interview skills.

Top for custom programmes: Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

Rotterdam School of Management is top in the European management schools ranking of executive education programmes that are tailored to suit clients, and fifth overall in the top European School ranking for the second year in a row. It dominates the custom list for the planning of courses, the integration of feedback from customers, the latest research, and the successful implementation of new skills and knowledge related to their organizations.

New to the top 10: Louvain School of Management

This year, Louvain School of Management rose 11 places to rank seventh overall in Europe. In this ranking, the school is sixth for open-enrolment executive education and ninth for personalized courses. Its ranking for MiM programmes was also commendable. The alumni surveyed praised the school’s development of students’ soft skills, indicating that it gave them a head start in management.

The highest percentage of female faculty: St Petersburg University, Graduate School of Management

St Petersburg University, Graduate School of Management, has the best parity in the continent and globally, when it comes to the gender of faculty, with 54 per cent of them being female. Although this is a one per cent drop from the previous year, it is still higher than most of the management school. Six per cent of the faculty are international, and ninety-four per cent of the faculty have a doctorate. The school ranked sixth overall in Europe.

Largest average salary increase: HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management

HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management ranked top across the five key rankings for highest pay rise on average at 14 per cent, based on figures published. The school ranks ninth in the combined European ranking and has, according to alumni, all-round programmes that gave them much-desired international experience.

Joint highest riser: Essca School of Management

Essca School of Management, rose 14 places to rank 18th in the continent overall. Despite falling four places in the high salary ranking, the French school had its MSc ranked twentieth in Europe, improving its performance overall. Alumni acclaimed the school’s approach to practical learning and also its international diversity.

NUTRITION EDUCATION IS A GREAT ABSENTEE IN THE CURRICULUM OF EUROPEAN DOCTORS


ESPEN LAUNCHES THE EUROPEAN MANIFESTO TO FILL THE TRAINING GAP

Nice, January 22 2020 – “During the medical training at the University the students should receive mandatory information about human nutrition in its three different domains, including basic nutrition, applied or public health nutrition and clinical nutrition”, as indicated in the “Manifesto for the Implementation of Nutrition Education” just released in Nice during the ESPEN-NEMS meeting.

“The way to organise these themes in the curriculum, also including novel teaching tools, internet resources and e-learning, will depend on each University centre, taking into consideration the different possible models of teaching (parallel, integrated or case-solving based), the availability of teachers and the distribution of time and credits with the rest of teaching subjects” the Manifesto says.

Although the teaching of nutrition is an essential element of medical training, a recent survey (1) has shown that there is an extreme variability in the educational standards of this subject in medical schools worldwide. As a consequence, there are differences in the access and quality of treatments received by patients.

Worldwide, more than 2 billion adults are overweight, 600 million obese and 462 million malnourished. These conditions contribute to 60% of cardiovascular death and 35% of tumor death. Even less known is that 35% of hospitalised patients develop disease-related malnutrition, a real ‘disease in a disease’.

“Weight loss in chronic, oncological, elderly and frail patients is an underestimated and under-diagnosed problem” Professor Rocco Barazzoni, ESPEN Chairman, explains. “Loss of weight and muscle mass leads to a higher rate of complications, worse response to therapies, higher mortality and increase in healthcare expenditures. This occurs in spite of the well documented positive and cost-effective impact of nutritional therapy on treatment side effects and disease outcomes.

“Implementing training is urgent” echoes Professor Maurizio Muscaritoli, Coordinator of the NEMS initiative together with the Spanish Professor Cristina Cuerda. “Learning nutrition is mandatory for future doctors. Seeking political support, forming ad hoc committees for the development of curricula and teaching modalities are among the key factors to allow for the implementation of nutrition training in universities”.

“Nutrition education in undergraduate medical schools is heterogeneous and largely under-powered” Professor Cuerda says, and adds: “teachers and students believe that the time dedicated to nutrition teaching is insufficient and far from what would be needed”.

The recently published ESPEN position paper (2) has identified the “minimum curriculum knowledge” in nutrition that serves to improve the training of the future doctors. This has been transferred into the Manifesto which was issued and signed by the 51 participants, including delegates of 13 European Medical Schools, representing 34 countries.

NUTRITION EDUCATION IN MEDICAL SCHOOLS (NEMS) INITIATIVE

Manifesto for the Implementation of Nutrition Education
in the Undergraduate Medical Currriculum

The NEMS Manifesto

Nutrition is a broad, interdisciplinary field, encompassing a large variety of scientific, cultural, social and political aspects. Human Nutrition is identified by three major domains, namely Basic, Applied and Clinical Nutrition. Human nutrition is an intrinsically complex topic, ranging from agriculture and zootechnics to food technology, from nutrition in different physiological states (growth, pregnancy, breast-feeding, aging), to the nutritional approach to acute and chronic diseases, from birth to the end of life.

At present, and due to its innate complexity, the nutritional field is often dominated by confusion: researchers, clinicians, patients and media have inconsistent ideas related to nutritional issues in health and disease. The complexity of the matter and the apparent confusion, however, should not represent an obstacle in acknowledging the relevance of nutrition in both preventive and clinical medicine.

The prevalence of obesity and related complications and the mortality rates due to NCDs such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes or COPD are steadily increasing and cause > 60% of diseases burden. Conversely, the rates of disease-related malnutrition (under-nutrition) have remained substantially unchanged since the 1970s. Malnutrition still causes high rates of complications, mortality and healthcare costs and about 12% or more of hospital expenditure.

While research has clearly documented that nutrition can positively impact on disease onset, prognosis, treatment side effects and outcomes, there is a great neglect regarding the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of malnutrition (including over- and under-nutrition) and low priority is currently given to nutritional activities by other disciplines in the competition for healthcare budget.

The training of healthcare professionals (HCPs), and in particular of medical doctors, becomes crucial both for a correct take-up of the problem and for effectively combating the confounding environment that prevails in the domains of Human Nutrition. Currently, (Clinical) Nutrition education in undergraduate Medical Schools is heterogeneous and largely underpowered.

Medical students are trained to consider the scientific evidence for pharmaceutical decision-making and clinical guidelines promoted by scientific institutions in specialties such as cardiology or surgery, while the evidence for nutritional interventions and the guidelines in Clinical Nutrition are often underevaluated.

Dentsu Tracking supports the European Union to fight illicit trade in tobacco products.


Dentsu Tracking, a brand of Dentsu Aegis Network, is collaborating with the European Commission and Member States of the European Union (EU) to design and operate a track and trace system as part of EU legislation on tobacco control (Tobacco Products Directive).

The track and trace system supports EU Member States in the fight against illicit trade. It, therefore, plays an important role in protecting public health, state budgets and legal economic operators.

This industry-wide scope required an innovative platform and data analysis system capable of tracking more than 26 billion products per year across the EU.

“As far as we know, this is the world’s first solution giving 360 visibility of the supply-chain across an entire industry”, says Philippe Castella, Managing Director of Dentsu Tracking. “We are honoured to work with the European Commission and the EU Member States. It is a unique project allowing 28 Member States on one single platform to track domestic and transnational sales, as well as products exported outside of the EU. No other platform is connecting this volume and complexity of data”.

Dentsu Tracking was awarded the concession in December 2018 based on an innovative solution that provides public authorities with visibility of the total supply-chain from manufacturing to retail. It also ensures that the track and trace system is under full control of public authorities, including access to the collected data, as required by the Tobacco Products Directive and the WHO FCTC Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products.

As of May 20th, 2019, cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco must be marked with a unique identifier code. All the involved economic operators are required to report all tobacco product movements and related financial information. This information is collected and stored in a central system, operated by Dentsu Tracking. The necessary reporting, queries, business analytics, and alerts are provided as part of the Dentsu Tracking solution. This allows Member States and the European Commission to monitor the movements of legal tobacco products (tracking) and to determine at which point a product was diverted into the illicit market, or vice versa (tracing). The analysis can also be used to highlight anomalies, to detect fraudulent activities, and to confirm if products are legitimate when passing inspection points.

All movements are tracked instantly for automated real-time traceability at any point along the supply-chain, and with all the information fed into one centralized database. This takes traceability to a new benchmark. In comparison, in pharmaceutical regulation there is a “check in–check out” approach tracking only a small portion of the supply chain. In food-industry regulation there is typically a “one up – one down” approach without any centralized repository, which means that the traceability and visibility of a product from start to end must be rebuilt manually.
