03 December 2018

  • WBS has climbed 10 places in last three European Business School rankings
  • School now ranked 12th in Europe and third in the UK
  • It comes due to WBS rising in four Financial Times rankings in 2018
  • Follows Full-time MBA being named number one in the UK by The Economist

Warwick Business School has risen to the top tier of business schools in Europe in the Financial Times’ annual European Business Schools ranking.

In the last three years WBS has climbed 10 places, and is now rated third in the UK and 12th in Europe by the highly respected business daily after rising three places in 2018.

The ranking is determined by the performance of schools in four of the Financial Times’ 2018 rankings, which saw WBS improve in its Full-time MBA, Executive MBA, Executive Education and Masters in Management rankings.

John Colley, Associate Dean for the MBA, said: “This culminates a fantastic year for the school across all the major rankings, which continue to illustrate our improvement and growing presence on the world stage.

“Not only have we risen in all these Financial Times rankings, but we have maintained our place in The Economist ranking of Full-time MBA programmes as the best in the UK, and achieved a place in the world’s top 10 for The Economist’s Executive MBA ranking.

“We have put a lot of hard work into improving teaching standards and listening to the needs of our students and that is clearly paying off with their feedback being a valuable part of these rankings.

“The careers support given on these courses is also vital as we look to help students achieve their career goals, and that is something we will continue to invest in.”
