This is a table I’ve pulled from the Financial Times website.

I have reorganized the MBA rankings using very iAgorical criteria of ‘International students’ (% of students who come from another country) and ‘International experience’ (it’s an FT index that is made of ‘4 criteria’ to measure the international exposure throughout the MBA)

It is interesting to see that the list changes when ranked based on ‘international exposure’. It’s as if there is a trade-off, surprisingly enough. The top ‘international exposure’ seem to be specialists, not the best schools in terms of overall rankings.

The only Top10 MBAs that are also in the Top10 of ‘international exposure’ are IESE, Insead and Hong-Kong UST.

The top American MBAs like Harvard do pretty poorly in terms of international experience. The first top American MBA appears at #15 (Stanford). Harvard is in position #59.

European MBAs seem to do better to combine ‘international exposure’ and ‘overall ranking’.
