Warwick Business School has been ranked among Europe’s top 20 business schools by the Financial Times.

In its annual ranking of rankings WBS was in the top tier of business schools, placing 17th in the Financial Times European Business Schools 2019 ranking.

It amalgamates the Financial Times’ four world rankings from the past year – the Full-time MBA, Executive MBA, Masters in Management and Executive Education – to compile a list of Europe’s elite business schools.

It is the second year in a row WBS has been included in Europe’s top tier and is one of just six UK school’s in the ranking’s top 20.

Andy Lockett, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship and Dean of WBS, said: “This ranking is a reflection of the hard work of our students and the investments we have made in the learning environment and careers support.

“We are building a new extension to further enhance the facilities for our MBAs so that alongside our world-class faculty they will continue to have a first-class education.”

The school’s Full-time MBA climbed to 36th in the world and fourth in the UK in the Financial Times’ rankings, while the business daily ranked WBS 24th globally for the Executive MBA, 22nd for the MSc Management and 46th for its Executive Education customised programmes for companies.

Professor Lockett added: “The business environment is undergoing rapid change with emerging technologies like AI and the Internet of Things changing how we work and opening up new opportunities.

“Our faculty are involved in cutting edge research in all these areas and feed that into their teachings. It is why our postgraduate and executive education courses are so valuable in boosting students’ careers and resetting company mindsets.”
