The Webometrics Business School Ranking is a ranking system based on Business Schools web presence, visibility and web access.

This ranking system measures how strongly a learning institution is present in the web by its own web domain, sub-pages, rich files, and scholarly articles.

The aim of the ranking is to improve the presence of the academic and research institutions on the Web and to promote the open access publication of scientific results.

The Webometrics study is conducted by a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the largest public research body in Spain.

The study has become the largest academic ranking of higher education institutions based on their production, as well as their presence and impact on the web.
