The ratings are based on the votes of the business schools’ deans who gave their recommendations by answering the question "which business school(s) would you recommend to anyone wishing to study in this country?" The official selection is separated by continent and the number of schools per country is weighted by quantitative and qualitative criteria.

About the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management
Named after Professor Peter Drucker in 1974, the Drucker School was established to satisfy the niche of part time executive management education. Today, the school shares its name with one of the world’s most respected entrepreneurs, Masatoshi Ito, combining a thinker (Peter Drucker, the founder of modern management) with a doer (Masatoshi Ito, who built the largest retail network in Japan), and reflecting a decidedly global orientation. Drucker has some 4,400 alumni around the globe, many of whom are leaders in business, government, and the nonprofit sector.

The school is known for its innovative programs, which in addition to the Masters in Arts Management (AM), includes the traditional Master of Business Administration (MBA), the Executive Management Program (EMBA), a Master of Science in Financial Engineering (MSFE), a Master in Politics, and Business and Economics (MAPEB), as well as a variety of certificate programs and customized corporate executive education offerings. The Drucker School’s programs and degrees are unique in their focus on management as a liberal art, rather than specific concentrations on core business functions such as accounting, finance, or marketing.
