The Rankings provide insights for aspiring professionals, employers, universities and business schools into the world’s best international trade graduate programmes, to be expanded and refined through an annual iterative process and continued stakeholder engagement. The first edition assesses 200 programmes in 43 countries and territories based on their performance across seven key lenses, including course content, graduate outcomes, industry networks, teaching methods and research.

The results feature 15 Indian programmes, making it the third most represented country in the Rankings. Of these, two rank among the world’s top 100, including its top performer, GITAM University, with its MBA International Business which ranks 62nd globally. The Master in Global Management at Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management is crowned the world’s best international trade programme, while the Master of International Trade at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand and Singapore’s Professional MBA (International Trading) at Nanyang Business School take second and third place respectively.

QS International Trade Rankings 2023

Global trade has been a driver of development and prosperity for decades. Yet, the trade sector is experiencing unprecedented challenges. If trade is to continue to provide economic and societal benefits for all, it must attract talented people who are equipped to deal with complexity, and drive policy and business decision-making.

In support of this talent development goal, the Hinrich Foundation has launched the International Trade Rankings in partnership with QS, the established world leader in higher education performance and insights, and publisher of topuniversities.com. The Rankings are the only specialized ranking of graduate trade programmes globally.

Through the Rankings, the Hinrich Foundation supports students to identify programs that will secure them employment and accelerate their trade careers, enables companies to hire work-ready talent, and provides universities with comparability, recognition and the means to enhance their global trade programs.

To ensure the relevancy of the ranking criteria, the Foundation drew on its rich expertise in trade, and elicited input from a panel of trade professionals and graduate-level professors of practice.

Among key recommendations are that a quality trade curriculum includes courses on cross-border trade, policy, logistics, international trade finance and cross-cultural leadership. Top programs have professors with rich industry experience, strong industry engagement and innovative teaching approaches.
