Warwick Business School has been ranked number one in the UK by The Economist for its Masters in Management course.

The Economist ranked WBS ninth in the world and eighth in Europe in its biennial ranking of the top global MSc Management programmes.

The school is one of just five UK higher education establishments to feature in the The Economist Which MBA? 2019 Masters in Management Ranking.

Andy Lockett, WBS Dean and Professor of Strategy & Entrepreneurship, said: “This is a tremendous result for the staff who work so hard to give our students a world-class education on our MSc Management course.

“It also reflects on the quality of our students who join with our faculty to produce a truly culturally rich and global experience, with their hard work paying off in the fantastic jobs they move into.

“The school has invested heavily in making our students’ time on the course truly transformational and it is pleasing to see this reflected in The Economist’s ranking.”

The Economist’s four main ranking criteria saw WBS highly rated for ‘open career opportunities’ with MSc Management graduates regularly moving into positions at the likes of KPMG, PwC, Google, IBM, Heineken, Accenture, EY and Johnson & Johnson.

The other main criteria saw WBS ranked highly for ‘personal development/education experience’, salary after graduating and for ‘potential to network’.
