When we publish

Our weekly features and our special magazines appear on in the late evenings (London time) on Sundays. You can find them on the business education homepage. We also tweet them from @ftbuseducation and send them in our weekly email (free sign up here). The print edition of these features and magazines appear on Mondays.

Looking for our online news stories, features, live Q&As, videos and MBA blogs? They are published throughout the week and you can find them on the business education homepage, which also takes you to our pages on MBAs, masters in management, executive MBA, executive education, online learning and financial training.

What are the FT rankings - and when are they published?

Every year we compile six rankings of business school programmes: Global MBA, Executive MBA, Masters in Management, Masters in Finance, Executive Education (customised programmes and open enrolment programmes). We also publish a ranking of European business schools. Keep an eye on the business education homepage for details.
