BAM is an independent research platform for postgraduate architecture studies around the world. Our ranking is an initiative that seeks a qualitative comparison between related architecture postgraduate programs offered by top ranked universities worldwide.
We believe that architects and architecture students should be able to find out which are the best international postgraduate programs available, using a transparent comparative method.

METHODOLOGY

BAM’s methodology is based on the adjustment of different indicators used to compare the world’s leading universities, architecture schools and Master’s programs. This methodology consists of a list of 11 indicators that focus on the quality and internationality of the faculty, alumni and study program. Thanks to this methodology, we are able to establish criteria to effectively and objectively compare study plans which despite being different, all focus on the academic development of better architects.

EXPERTS

BAM is endorsed 100% by expert professors from around the world, who were given the task of developing, supervising and validating the study methodology and results.  Some of the experts of the BAM Experts Committee are:
