Kan du säga mig vägen till Europas bästa affärs skola?


Explanation:
This is almost a word by word translation. You could also say:

Kan du säga mig hur jag tar mig till Europas bästa affärs skola?

Can you tell me how I get to Europe's best business school?

Bästa - best

could also be

Nummer ett - number one (but doesn't feel as a natural thing to say in Swedish)

There is probably a better translation to "affärs skola". In Gothenburg it's called "Handels".

It sounds like as if the person is looking for the way to this school in regard to his/her education. What to study perhaps or where and how to apply.

'business school is often not translated due to differences in educational systems.
If its a pre-university institution it is 'handelsgymnasium' in Sweden, but Americans often mean 'handelshögskola' (School of Economics=university level) when thay talk about it.
Harvard Business School is one example of a university level business school.

kan du berätta för mig hur man gör för att komma in på Europas bästa handelsskola


Explanation:
I suppose "the way" is not about geographical description, more how you do to attend this school. Regarding the name of the school, please see other answers to your question.
