METHODOLOGY

BAM’s methodology derives from the adjustment of different indicators used to compare the world’s leading colleges, architecture schools and master degrees programs. This methodology consists on a list of 11 indicators focused on 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 that, despite being different, are focused on the academic development of better architects.

EXPERTS

BAM is 100% endorsed by expert professors from around the world, who had the

 task of develop, supervise and validate the methodology and results the study gave. 

Some of the experts of the BAM Experts Committee are:
