The Edinburgh MBA has climbed 18 places to 73rd in the world in the Financial Times Top 100 MBA ranking. The programme is also ranked 11th in the UK.

The full table can be viewed at FT Global MBA Ranking 2018.

Our students continue to play a huge part in this success, with the programme recognised as:

  • 1st in the UK and 4th internationally for proportion of women faculty
  • 2nd in the UK and 4th globally for proportion of women students
  • 4th in the UK and 25th in the world for international experience
  • 12th in the UK and 13th in the world for career progress, with a salary percentage increase of 79% in 2018 as opposed to 67% in 2017

We continue to be in the vanguard for gender diversity and benefit from the integral part that professional development plays in the overall programme; an important factor in employability on graduation.

Another key part of what makes the Edinburgh MBA truly global is the investment in international treks and we are really pleased to see this continues to be recognised in the FT rankings. This year the MBA students have the option of going to Colombia or Hong Kong to work with local businesses on a range of different issues.

Rankings continue to be one of the ways we measure our success. However, more than anything, delivering a world-class experience which inspires our students remains our number one priority. Feedback is essential to how we evaluate this, so once again we sincerely thank all the alumni who take part in these surveys.
