The University of Edinburgh Business School MBA programme has further improved its standing in The Economist's 'Which MBA?' global ranking.

Based on a survey of student and recent graduates' feedback, our full-time MBA is rated 8th in the UK, up from 10th place last year and up 10 places to 66th position globally.

Our 12-month MBA programme is based on the principles of strategic leadership and personal development, essential for tomorrow's aspiring senior leaders. Participants can choose to specialise in finance, strategy, or entrepreneurship.

Of the ranked MBA programmes, we are rated 1st in the UK and 3rd in the world for 'student quality', which measures Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) results, students' years of work experience, and their salary before starting the course.

Edinburgh is also in the UK top ten when it comes to:

  • Opening new career opportunities
  • Personal development
  • Salary
  • Potential to network

Julian Rawel, Director of the Edinburgh MBA, said:

"This is a great result, demonstrating the quality of experience we offer. Our faculty and professional staff work hard to create and deliver a personalised programme for a diverse group of students. Our aim is to inspire people with strategies and connections to help boost their careers.

"Rankings such as this are just one way of measuring our success and we're grateful to all those who took part."
