Stanford University has topped the Financial Times’ Global MBA ranking for the first time in 13 years, having consistently ranked within the top 10.
In recent years, the university has improved its campus facilities, research centres and boosted its curriculum in order to enhance its MBA programme. Students are also attracted to a weighted salary of $192,179 (£122,360) upon graduation – the highest in the industry.
Formula 1 World Champions from past to present will take part in the first ever Financial Times supercar experience – the FT Run To Monaco. The exclusive event will see former F1 champion Damon Hill leading the participants in a fleet of luxury supercars on a route from London, through France and culminating at the Monaco Grand Prix 2012.
The private event, organised by The Run To Global Ltd. in partnership with the FT, will take place over five days beginning with an opening speech by Damon Hill and a car blessing ceremony at Hampton Court Palace before guests head over the Channel. Along the way drivers will get a chance to emulate their racing heroes by taking part in sprint challenges on track, be treated to the finest cuisine and hospitality and get behind the scenes access to the Formula 1 World Champions at the Red Bull Energy Station for the weekend.
