University of Edinburgh Business School ranked 16th in the UK and 49th in Europe
in annual FT European Business School Ranking
The Financial Times ranks the University of Edinburgh Business School 16th in the UK and 49th in Europe.
The annual FT European Business School Rankings were released on 5 December 2011. The University of Edinburgh Business School is ranked 16th in the UK and 49th in Europe. This ranking represents a significant improvement on last year's performance (improvements of 3 and 13 places respectively).
The School is now beginning to reap the rewards of our infrastructure investments in our new £17m Business School as well as a number of innovations to the MBA programme. As we move through this period of growth and investment we are also significantly expanding our faculty, this week advertising eight new academic posts for recruitment in early 2012. We have just launched three new Masters programmes - an MSc in Financial Management, MSc in Banking and Risk and an MSc in Human Resource Management which will contribute to an even more diverse student community in 2012.
It is worth noting however that rankings are little more than an indication of the market at a particular time. They reflect the prevailing conditions such as salaries, jobs available and the situation at the school at the time the survey was carried out. All rankings use different criteria and a School should never be measured based on ranking alone.
We will continue to invest in the School and work closely with staff, students, alumni, corporate partners and our advisory board to develop a world class Business School.
