Manchester Business School has risen to 35th in this year’s Financial Times’ Global MBA ranking of the world’s leading MBA programmes. This means we are positioned as 5th in the UK and 12th in Europe.
The ranking also shows our MBAs benefit from a 92% increase in salary three years after graduating and 84% of our alumni achieved their aims for doing an MBA, making Manchester 9th in the world in this area.
The FT rates MBS’ doctoral programme as 1st in Europe and 3rd in the world, in the doctoral ranking criterion.
Professor Fiona Devine, Head of MBS, said: “As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, embarking on an ambitious programme of investment in our people and campus, I am delighted that we have risen to 35th in the world for the quality of our MBA programme and 3rd for our doctoral programme.
“When we opened our doors in 1965 we were renowned for innovation in business and management education. Much has changed in the world since then. Our core aims of generating the highest quality research to inspire the business leaders and managers of the future remains the same.”
