50 Most Beautiful Business Schools

While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, architectural design that is made for the sake of beauty has many benefits. Studies show that workers in older office buildings with low ceilings and loud air conditioners can be significantly more stressed than those in a newer space with skylights and open cubicles. It has also been found that wall color can affect performance. Red seems to enhance skills related to accuracy, while blue walls encourage creativity.

When choosing a business school there are many aspects to take into consideration including the quality of teaching, range of courses available or the potential for employment after graduation. While these specifications are very important, another aspect to consider is the overall look and feel of the campus and business buildings that you will be spending time in as a business student. The time spent studying, networking, and earning your degree should be as efficient and comfortable as possible. Many schools today are as aesthetically pleasing on the outside as they are innovative on the inside. Because of the subjectivity of beauty, this ranking of Beautiful Business Schools is intrinsically subjective. But whether Gothic buildings with steep arches are your thing or if you prefer more modern styles with large open areas, there is something to meet needs for every personality and preference on our list of the Most Beautiful Business Schools.
