The percentage of faculty with doctorates at WBS was the joint highest in the world and WBS also ranked second in the UK and 14th globally for careers, which is calculated according to alumni seniority and their company’s size. While WBS ranked second in the UK and 18th in the world for placement success, and for employment after three months the school was third and 21st respectively.
Assistant Dean for Masters Programmes, Sotirios Paroutis, was delighted with the school’s performance in the ranking.
Dr Paroutis said: “This is a very encouraging showing for WBS and reflects the hard work put in by our faculty, staff and students. The school has actively brought in top academics from around the world in recent years and this is being reflected in the teaching and world-class research carried out at WBS.
“Not only is this up to date and impactful research fed into the MSc Management, but our highly experienced careers team continue to support our participants so they achieve their career goals. Once they graduate they become part of our extensive global alumni network.
“The MSc Management is proving to be an increasingly popular course and we look forward to teaching and inspiring many more of its participants.”
