Economist ranks Leeds MBA in world's top 100

The Business School's full-time MBA has been ranked as a world top 100 MBA programme, according to the Economist Which MBA? Rankings 2017.


The results also showed that the Leeds Full-time MBA is placed: 

  • 16th in the UK
  • Joint first in the world for the percentage of our graduates who had a job offer within three months of graduation
  • 7th in the UK for personal development/education experience
  • 8th in the UK for (Full time MBA) faculty quality. 

These results are based on feedback from the MBA student cohort of 2017, as well as MBA alumni from the class of 2015. 

James Roberts, Director for the Full-time MBA said, “This is a great team effort. The combination of outstanding academics, enthusiastic and professional support staff and dedicated and ambitious students allows us to co-create an MBA programme we can all be justifiably proud of, and one that is increasingly recognised by major employers for delivering MBAs that make a real impact on the businesses they join.”   

Professor Peter Moizer, Executive Dean at the Business School added, “I am extremely proud that our MBA has been recognised among the world’s leading MBA programmes, based on the feedback of students and alumni alike. It is also particularly pleasing to see our programme ranked joint 1st in the world, based on the number of graduates who had job offers within three months of graduation – this proves that our programme provides our graduates with the academic, commercial and professional skills to impress potential employers.”
