English-based and bilingual MBA programs in Europe have given their American counterparts a run for their money in recent years. As international experience becomes increasingly desirable in financial, managerial, and operations employment, a strong history of trans-border ties gives the Old World an edge. Shorter programs, lower tuition, and healthy starting salaries for grads also make for attractive choices. Britain, Spain, and France are home to the bulk of this year's elite schools, but the Continent's smaller countries—Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Belgium—also host institutions of exceptional caliber.
