Good University Guide 2013

The University’s Accounting & Finance degree has been named the best in the country.

The Times Good University Guide 2013 highlights the very high levels of student satisfaction, high quality of research conducted, the entry standards of students on that programme, and the excellent career prospects of its graduates as reasons for its number one position.

Accounting & Finance is a popular subject at UK universities and Bath beat off competition from 84 other universities teaching the subject to claim top spot.

Bath’s Accounting & Finance graduates are highly sought after and have excellent career prospects.

Professor Richard Elliott, Dean of the School of Management, said: “I am delighted that our Accounting and Finance degree has been named the best in the country.  It is still a relatively new degree having been launched in 2005 but it has proven to be more successful than older, more established degrees.”

“I am also pleased to see us ranked 3rd for Business Studies (after Cambridge and Oxford).”

Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bath, said: “This is excellent news for the School of Management and recognises the hard work and dedication of its staff to provide our students with not only the highest quality teaching, but also a great all round experience.”

Overall, the University was ranked ninth in the country by this week’s table, a rise of three positions on last year’s results.
