Financial Times rankings success for Leeds University Business School

Leeds University Business School's status as one of Europe's top schools has been confirmed in the latest Financial Times Global Masters in Management 2013 rankings.


For the second consecutive year, the School entered its flagship MSc International Business programme. The programme is ranked 58th in the world in a league table of Management programmes from 70 international business schools; this is a climb of 12 places on the 2012 results.

World class teaching

Leeds University Business School is in the world’s top five for both International Business and Organisational Behaviour. International Business is ranked 4th in the world and 1st in the UK and Organisational Behaviour is 4th in the world and 3rd in the UK. Both are based on recommendations from the MSc International Business alumni of 2010.

International recognition

The success follows other accolades for the School: In July 2013, the School’s Executive MBA programme was ranked 7th in the UK and 41st in the world by The Economist; it was also ranked 63rd in Europe in the 2012 Financial Times European Business Schools survey.

Nicolas Forsans, Programme Director said, "Our MSc International Business has become, in a short period of time, a leading and internationally recognised programme in the field that compares very favourably against those of the very best world class business schools. Our repeated success in the Financial Times league tables provides further evidence of the high calibre of the students we recruit, and the outstanding quality of our graduates, capable of competing for careers against the brightest minds in the world. We do particularly well in areas that matter to students, such as employability, career prospects and the ability of our programme team to work with our students and enable them to achieve their personal, as well as professional objectives."

Dean of the Business School, Professor Peter Moizer said, "I am delighted at the performance of our MSc International Business in such a highly competitive league table. Our position in the FT rankings demonstrates that our students receive a world class educational experience."
