Financial Times European Business School ranking 2017

Rising up the ranks to UK no.8 and no.31 in Europe

Today’s Financial Times European Business School ranking confirms our strong position amongst top business education institutions. Our continued efforts in enhancing and updating our programmes and study experience is evidenced by our rise to no.31 in Europe and no.8 in the UK.

Individually, our relevant programmes also feature in the UK top 10 for overall ranking places:

Executive Education
  • Open programmes: 3rd in the UK and 8th in Europe (2018)
  • Custom programmes: 8th in the UK and 25th in Europe (2018)
Executive MBA
  • 7th in the UK and 27th in Europe
Masters in Management
  • 9th in the UK

As champions of diversity and using up to date research in our teaching, we are also particularly proud to see strong results in these areas:

  • Percentage of female faculty: 1st in the UK and 12th in Europe
  • Percentage of international faculty: 15th in UK and 36th in Europe
  • Percentage of faculty with doctorate degree/PhD: 15th in the UK

This important league table is a year-end composite listing, based on five existing Financial Times rankings which were published earlier this year, including the Executive MBA, Executive Education Open and Custom programmes and Masters in Management rankings, which we participate in. During the year, the publication collates feedback and data to enable prospective students to compare providers and help inform their overall decision about their future study.

Professor John Board, Dean, comments:

“I am delighted with this latest improvement in our European ranking, which is the result of the hard work, ambition and determination of our faculty, participants and alumni.”
