The Times Good University Guide 2020

Good Uni guide mtime20170925171625

This year’s Sunday Times and Times Good University Guide, published on Sunday 22 September 2019, sees three of Henley Business School’s subjects ranked in the UK top 20, as well as strong positions for our research quality and graduate prospects.

The guide is a comprehensive league table for students looking at potential higher education institutions and courses. It assesses graduate prospects, student satisfaction, research and teaching quality and entry standards, using data from the National Student Survey (NSS) and Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

All four of Henley’s subjects feature in the UK top 30 overall this year, with one in the top 10 and two in the top 20:

  • Land and Property Management: No.4
  • Town and Country Planning and Landscape: No. 13
  • Accounting and Finance: No.19
  • Business and Management*: No.29

Our strong focus on employability and the support offered by our award-winning careers team has led to strong positions for Henley when it comes to graduate prospects:

  • Land and Property Management: No.1
  • Accounting and Finance: No.19
  • Business and Management*: No.23

Many of our faculty are engaged in academic and applied research, and a large number of our academics draw upon their experiences as leaders and consultants to international organisations at the highest level. This is demonstrated by our top 20 positions across the board for research quality:

  • Land and Property Management: No.2
  • Town and Country Planning and Landscape: No. 6
  • Accounting and Finance: No.15
  • Business and Management*: No.18

Commenting on the results, Professor Peter Miskell, Head of Undergraduate Programmes at Henley Business School, said:

“At Henley Business School we aim to deliver degree programmes that combine cutting-edge academic research with real-world learning outcomes. This latest rankings exercise demonstrates, once again, that we are achieving these goals, with all programme areas located in the top quartile of UK universities for both research quality and graduate prospects. Staff, students and alumni from across Henley Business School can take satisfaction from these results.”

Overall the University of Reading, which Henley is part of, is ranked No.38 in the UK out of 131 institutions, up two places from No.40 last year.
