High performance by WBS in this year's undergraduate rankings
The WBS Undergraduate Programme has, consistent with previous years, performed very well in the Times Good University Guide 2013 published today.
Other league tables published earlier in the year have also ranked both degrees very highly: the BSc Accounting and Finance degree came third (to LSE and Bath) in the Complete University Guide 2013 and the BSc Management degree came third (to Oxford and City) in the Guardian University Guide.
Professor Mark Taylor, Dean of Warwick Business School, commented: "Warwick Business School's continued excellent performance in this year's Times Good University Guide shows that we are not content to rest on our laurels: coming in the top three for Accounting & Finance for the fourth year running, and fourth for Management shows that WBS really does mean business. It also shows that we are delivering on our mission to give our students a top return on their investment by giving them a first-class education that is both intellectually rigorous and highly relevant for their future careers."
The University of Warwick retained its 8th place out of 116 UK universities, and is by far the highest-ranked university in the Midlands.
The Times Good University Guide has been published annually since 1993 to help undergraduate students choose degree courses. It compares various measures of performance relevant to students to produce an overall university rank and subjects rankings. These criteria include research performance, entry standards, grades at graduation, staff-student ratio, and job prospects.
