BRADFORD University School of Management’s Executive part-time MBA has been ranked in the top 100 programmes in the world in an influential survey.
The Financial Times has also ranked Bradford among the best 10 MBA programmes in the UK and the top 25 in Europe.
Bradford is the only business school in the North of England to achieve an FT 2010 ranking for its Executive MBA programme. Students on average, see a 70% salary rise four years after starting the programme, the FT found.
The league table results are compiled using information from two sets of surveys, one completed by alumni graduating three years ago and the other by the business schools.
The criteria used include the job seniority and career progression of graduates, the international reach of the EMBA programme and the quality of the School’s academic research activity.
Bradford University School of Management’s dean, Dr Sarah Dixon, said: “In this highly uncertain environment it is vital for managers to raise the bar in terms of their personal development and professional performance and the MBA plays a key role in this, bringing multiple perspectives, differing analytical approaches and creativity to addressing challenging business issues.
“It has never been more important for managers and businesses to stand out from the crowd and we are delighted that the Bradford Executive MBA has been recognised as world class.”
The next Bradford Executive Part-time MBA programme begins in January 2011 as does the Bradford Accelerated full-time MBA targeted at managers who can spare less time out of their careers for a full-time programme.
