The Economist full-time MBA ranking showcases the quality of students’ experience of our full-time MBA. Placing us in the top 5 Business Schools in the UK and top 15 in Europe, the results highlight particular strengths in personal development, educational experience and networking potential.
We understand the importance of developing professional networks alongside enhancing business skills and are pleased to see our efforts in this area reflected by our positions as no.1 in the UK and no.2 in Europe for potential to network. We provide our students with a number of opportunities to meet peers from across the Business School and access to our network of over 75,000 alumni from 150 countries.

Our strong results as no.2 in the UK and no.3 in Europe for personal development and education experience are testament to the quality and experience of our academics and practitioners and reflect our focus on personal development for our cohorts.

Students can feel assured that they will also learn from, and alongside, a strong and varied cohort of experienced professionals.
Dr Kelly Sloan, Programme Director for the MBA, comments:
“In the competitive and changing world of work, the MBA needs to be more than just a business education course. We provide students with broad experience and personal, professional and business development opportunities to future proof their careers.”
