Economist Masters in Management Ranking 2017
World top 20 for potential to network

World top 20 for potential to network

Following continued enhancement of our Master’s in Management course, we are pleased to see the programme ranked among the best in today’s inaugural Economist Master’s in Management Ranking. We are one of just 40 Business Schools in the world and 10 in the UK to be listed in this year’s results.

With the increasing popularity of Master’s in Management programmes, the Economist have produced this ranking to enable prospective students to compare providers and make the best decision for their future study.

Our programme has been designed to give students the best of both worlds, by developing their understanding of academic theory and current real-world business issues, through case studies, field trips, and visiting speakers from industry. The quality and experience of our academic community is evidenced by our world top 20 position for percentage of full-time faculty with PhDs (19th).

We are proud to be an international business school and one that is constantly pushing for gender diversity and encouraging female leadership progression, which is reflected in our world top 20 position for geographical diversity of students (19th) and world top 25 for gender diversity/percentage of female students (21st).

With over 1,000 students across all our postgraduate programmes, an alumni network of 72,000 members in 150 countries, and a range of industry relationships and connections, our students have access to a strong network with which to forge connections across professions, sectors, industries and countries. Our strength in this area has given us strong positions for:

  • Potential to network: 18th in the world
  • Number of overseas international alumni chapters: 7th in the world and 1st in the UK
  • Ratio of alumni to current students: 11th in the world

Professor Peter Miskell, Head of Pre-experience Postgraduate Programmes comments:

“We are pleased to feature in the first Economist Master’s in Management ranking, which illustrates the value of our alumni community and potential for students to benefit from this international network. With the enhancements we have made to our Master’s in Management programme for 2017 onwards, we look forward to further progress in this and other future rankings.”

Naeema Pasha, Head of Careers Services, adds:

“Employability is high on the agenda for prospective students and our world top 20 position for potential to network demonstrates the quality and added value of the industry connections we have built. We are continually developing our careers offering for all our students and our recent finalist places in the National Undergraduate Employability Awards and Guardian University Awards employability initiative category evidence the strength of our provision.”
