The schools listed also appear in the FT’s MBA 2022, Executive MBA 2021, and Masters in Management 2022 league tables, and are ranked according to categories including the average salary of alumni, graduate employment rate and proportion of students studying overseas.

This directory comprises schools with campuses in mainland China, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan and Australia.
