Leeds – A Strong Performance In Uk And European Rankings
Leeds University Business School was celebrating recently having retained their top 100 status in The Economists world rankings of full-time MBA programmes. Helping the business school achieve this was a strong performance in UK and European rankings. Continued growth and improvement in the quality of courses and teaching available was vital to the business schools rise up the rankings tables.
Climbing Up the UK and European Rankings
The Economist has been publishing rankings for the past nine years and measures the success of a business school based on a number of factors including, a schools ability to open new career opportunities for its graduates and the salaries those graduates can expect. This year once again sees American institutions dominating the top ten list, with no fewer than six included, counting the top four.
However, Leeds University Business School will be encouraged by an improved performance. In the UK rankings, the school climbed two places from 17th to 15th, whilst in Europe a similar two place climb saw the business school rank in 35th for 2010 compared to 37th in 2009.
Retaining a Top 100 Position
However, the luxury of being able to say they are still a top 100 MBA school in the world will have the most impact. Their 2010 ranking sees them in 97th place, with more volatile changes in positions this year credited with their slight fall from 96th place in 2009. Leeds University Business School offers a number of full-time and part-time (executive) MBA courses for students wanting to make the best start in business or improve their knowledge.
Dean of Leeds University Business School, Professor Peter Moizer, said: This result confirms what we already knew – that our MBA programme is recognised as being among the best. To secure a place in the top 100 in such a competitive market and at a time of such turbulence in the global economy is an achievement. The ranking provides validation for the hard work that has taken place around the school in the last twelve months.
