Latin America’s Top 10 Business Schools: Slideshow

Top 10 business schools in Latin America 2014/15: Slideshow

In Latin America, demand for MBA graduates continues to grow as locally-based companies seek expansion across the region – something that should come as good news to the region’s top 10 business schools.

Latin American business schools and the region’s growth in MBA jobs

The latest QS TopMBA Jobs & Salary Trends Report indicates that the number of MBA jobs on offer in Latin America is still rising. This growth may now be at a slightly lesser rate than has been seen in recent years but, considering the small base from which the region started in terms of MBA jobs, this can still be taken as a positive sign.

Leading this growth has been Brazil, Argentina and Mexico - where employers reported one of 2014’s highest rises in MBA jobs worldwide, at 14%. Mexico is the ‘M’ in ‘MINT’– a group of four nations (Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey are the others) earmarked as potential successors to the BRIC nations

Opportunities in the region have led many business schools – particularly those in the US and Spain - to forge links with these emerging economies and with Latin American business schools. Special events and forums dedicated to offering insight into the region are also increasingly commonplace.  

So, which Latin American business schools did a global pool of more than 12,000 MBA employers and business academics cite as the region’s best in this year’s QS Global 200 Business Schools Report?

The top 10 business schools in Latin America for 2014/15 can be seen in the slideshow below:

Five nations are represented in the top 10 this year, with Chile and Mexico leading the way with four and three institutions respectively.

There are two new entries - Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez and Universidad Diego Portales – both of which are Chilean. However, Mexico’s EGADE Business School retains its number one spot among this year’s Latin American business schools.

Brazil is down to one representative after Business School São Paulo dropped out of the top 10 from third place last year. Argentina and Costa Rica also have one representative apiece.
