Bath ranks high in the world for Executive MBAs

The School of Management’s Executive MBA programme has been ranked 11th in the world by The Economist.

The new league table also puts the Bath Executive MBA programme as 2nd in the UK.

This is the first time The Economist’s Which MBA ranking has been compiled for Executive MBAs, usually taken by business people on a part-time basis. In the league table of 62 institutions from across the globe there are 11 from the UK, including Cranfield (20th), Strathclyde (28th) and Nottingham (40th).

Topping the table in a joint qualification is Kellogg School of Management at Illnois’ Northwestern University and Schulich School of Business at York University in Canada. Second place went to IE Business School in Madrid while third was another joint EMBA offered by University of California Anderson Business School and the University of Singapore, with Oxford fourth.

This high ranking joins a plethora of accolades already achieved by the School of Management and the range of business degrees it offers, which include taking the top spot for business in The Sunday Times University Guide 2012 and its full-time MBA being ranked 25th in the world (and 2nd in the UK) by The Economist.

Dr Bruce Rayton, Director of the Bath MBA said: “It is always satisfying to see external recognition of the quality of our programmes, and I’m pleased to see that the inaugural Which MBA ranking of EMBA programmes has recognised the Bath MBA. I’m thankful for the hard work of our alumni, staff and students in making the Bath MBA a success.”

The ranking measures business schools on two broad criteria: personal development/educational experience and career development. Within these categories, 27 criteria were examined, including the quality and diversity of students, the quality of the faculty, the percentage of students who receive a promotion after they graduate and the average salary increase graduates can expect. The data are a mixture of student-reported figures, student ratings and data provided by the schools. The league table will be run every two years.
