Ranking Improvement for Strathclyde MBA

Posted on: February 5th, 2014 by admin No Comments

The Strathclyde MBA has been ranked 30th in the top 100 full time MBA programmes in the world as compiled by the Financial Times (published January 28).

Strathclyde’s MBA programme was one of just 15 UK programmes to be ranked in the top 100 with Strathclyde taking joint 7th position in the UK and 13th in Europe. In addition, SBS’ ranking means it is the top programme in Scotland according to this year’s figures.

The rankings showed that the Strathclyde MBA offers better value for money than at any other university in the world. Graduates from the MBA programme also showed the sixth-highest percentage increase in salary, with the average leaping 143% to $113,071, three years after graduation.

The Financial Times survey measures a wide range of factors – surveying MBA alumni three years after graduation. It looks at their career progress, salary increase and, within the school, considers the diversity of the staff and student body, the MBA programme and research.

There are some 1500 MBA programmes worldwide and in the UK alone there are over 100 business schools offering MBAs.

Strathclyde Principal, Professor Andrew Hamnett, said, “These rankings reflect an excellent performance by everyone connected with the university’s MBA course and they can all be justly proud of their achievements.”

“The survey confirms that Strathclyde has one of the leading business schools in the UK and Europe, as well as being one of only 27 worldwide to have accreditation from three of the world’s main business school quality assessment bodies – AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. Our MBA students receive an excellent return for their money in the form of a high quality course in a competitive field.”
