Abstract

This research highlights the branding strategies employed by the top 30 business schools listed in the Financial Times Global MBA Rankings 2008. Based on a content analysis of brand elements and website content, each business school is classified according to Aaker and Joachmisthaler’s (2000) brand relationship spectrum. Results indicate that these business schools adopt brand architectures across the relationship spectrum, but certain regional differences are apparent. In addition, business schools associated with prestigious universities tend to emphasise the university brand, whereas those named after a benefactor are more likely to emphasise the school brand.
