Warwick Business School's Full-time MBA climbed four places to 37th in the world in the new QS World University Rankings.

The Full-time MBA was ranked in the top five in the UK and 16th in Europe after higher education analysts QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) compared more than 250 business schools in 37 countries.

QS also rated the MSc Business Analytics course at WBS eighth in the world, while MSc Marketing & Strategy ranked 10th, MSc Finance 18th and MSc Management 21st.

All five courses scored between 92 and 99.5 per cent in categories measuring academic excellence, recognising the outstanding academic reputation and world-leading research that WBS students have access to.

The QS rankings are another success for WBS after its Executive MBA was ranked in the world's top 10 by The Economist and its Distance Learning MBA was ranked number one in the world by the Financial Times.


Andy Lockett, Dean and Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, said: "This is another proud day for Warwick Business School, underlining our status as a world-class institution.

"Our academics are at the cutting edge of research and practice, and provide a first rate education for all our students, who are at the beating heart of everything we do.

"Being at the forefront of research and practice enables us to fully equip students with the skills they need to succeed, whichever industry they choose and wherever in the world their career takes them."

The QS World University Rankings found that graduates earned 68 per cent more after completing their MBA, with many enjoying an increased salary soon after graduating.
