Leeds University Business School achieves highest ever position in MBA rankings

Leeds University Business School has joined the ranks of the world's top 40 business schools, according to the authoritative Which MBA? guide published today by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

LUBS is ranked 40th in the world, up from last year's place of 60th.

The survey is based on responses from over 20,000 MBA students and graduates throughout the world. For business schools, success depends upon their providing high-quality personal development and education and opening new opportunities for their students to enhance their career and salary.

Professor Andrew Lock, Dean of LUBS, said, 'This marked rise in our rankings is a further step in our progress as a world-class business school. It's based on the strong performance of our graduates in their careers and on their excellent experience of studying at Leeds.'

Of the schools ranked above LUBS, 23 are from North America, 14 are from Europe and 2 from Asia. Only 7 UK schools are ranked above Leeds and none are located north of Warwick. Bradford University School of Management is also in the world's top 100, improving its ranking to 71st.
