Sun Yat-sen Business School (SYSBS), based in southern China's Guangzhou city, has made into the world’s top 100 best business schools for MBA in the annual ranking by the Economist, a UK-based news magazine.

The Economist has recently released its ranking of full-time MBA programs on its website, with the Northwestern University, University of Chicago and Harvard Business School on top.

China’s SYSBS was the 87th in the list, and it is also the only business school in Chinese mainland to appear. Last year, SYSBS was selected among the top 100 list for the first time and ranked the 98th.

Apart from Chinese Mainland, two universities in Hong Kong also make their names on the list: The University of Hong Kong- Faculty of Business and Economics ranked No. 25; and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology - School of Business and Management ranked No. 97.

The Economist's ranking of MBA schools is one of the most comprehensive of its kind. Its list was judged by ranking and sorting institutions into four categories.

The ranking was made according to four factors: the opening of new career opportunities, personal development and educational experience, increase in salary, and potential to network.
