The Guardian University Guide 2014 has been published and sees both the University and the School of Management improving on last year’s positions.

The University of Bath School of Management has climbed to 3rd place out of 114 institutions – moving up three places on last year in the league table for business and management studies.

The School of Management has also placed 2nd for ‘Satisfied with the Course’, ‘Satisfied with Teaching’ and ‘Career after 6 months’.

The Guardian University Guide 2014 considers satisfaction of final-year students with teaching, feedback, assessment and the overall experience; spend per student; the student to staff ratio; the career prospects of graduates; a value added score and the grades pupils have to achieve to stand a chance of being offered a place.

The University of Bath has achieved an overall ranking of 7th place, a rise of two positions on last year’s result, out of 119 UK institutions.
