Management School enters top 100 global MBA ranking


The University of Liverpool’s Management School has entered The Economist’s ‘Which MBA?’ top 100 global ranking for the first time.

The School was one of 15 UK entries in the ranking, which was topped by the University of Warwick in the regional table and the University of Chicago in the global table for the institutions with the best full-time MBA programmes.

Positioned at 98th, it follows Liverpool’s accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) awarded in 2012.

Career opportunities

The School was ranked in 82nd place for ‘opening new career opportunities’ and the ‘potential to network.’

Professor Dominic Elliott, Interim Director of the University’s Management School, said: “This is a significant achievement for a School as young as ours. We have being working towards joining this ranking for some time and it follows our success in entering the 2014 Financial Times European Business School rankings.”

The ranking weights data according to what students say is important in the MBA programme. The four categories covered are: opening new career opportunities (35% weighting), personal development and educational experience (35%), increasing salary (20%) and the potential to network (10%).

    University of Liverpool’s inclusion in the ranking is good news – beginning to address one of the key weaknesses in Liverpool’s global offer. Look forward to see the Business School climb up the rankings to achieve top 10!
