Published 25 January 2010
The 2010 Financial Times Global MBA ranking, published on 25 January, places the Lancaster MBA 24th in the world, 10th in Europe and 4th in the UK. This position confirms the consistent and reliable quality that has placed Lancaster in the top 30 in the world over the last four years.
The 2010 FT ranking keeps Lancaster in a cluster of world-class business schools, such as Oxford and Cambridge in the UK; NYU, Dartmouth, Yale, Northwestern, Duke and UCLA in the USA; the Indian School of Business and CEIBS in Asia; and HEC, IMD, IESE, ESADE, Rotterdam and Bocconi in Europe.
The FT ranking highlights Lancaster's continuing special strengths which have now been evident over several years:
- 3rd in the world for value
- 9th in the world for career progress
- Best in Britain for salary increase with an average rise of 131% for the class of 2006
Professor Sue Cox, Dean of Lancaster University Management School, praised her colleagues in the MBA team for their continued success, and congratulated the class of 2006 on their career performance, which is behind Lancaster's high ranking.
Chris Saunders, Director of the Lancaster Full-time MBA, said: “We're immensely proud of our alumni who have achieved such outstanding career success since leaving us. Here at Lancaster we continue to pioneer hands-on, action-based approaches to managerial development that we are sure will continue to earn premium professional and financial rewards for our students.”
