Updated May 29, 2020 Updated May 29, 2020

Find the best MBA program for a career in your chosen field with the QS MBA by Specialization Rankings 2019, which are released today.

The rankings feature the top business schools from around the world for seven different specializations: consulting, entrepreneurship, finance, information management, marketing, operations management and technology.

Schools have been ranked on three indicators: employer reputation, research strength and the percentage of graduate who go on to work in a relevant industry or field. This final indicator is particularly important, as it demonstrates the proven industry connections a school has and suggests the possibile sources of support you'll find through the school's alumni network. Read more about the methodology here.

Find out more about the top business schools for each specialization below.
