AMBS climbs FT Global MBA Rankings

(31 January 2017)

AMBS has cemented its position as an elite provider of global business education in this year’s Financial Times (FT) Global MBA rankings, by rising eight places to 30th in the world.

The rise means Alliance Manchester Business School is one of Europe’s top ten business schools, and is ranked as the third best school in the UK. 

The FT found that Class of 2013 MBA alumni enjoy a 108% salary increase three years after graduating, with average salaries at £101,860 ($128,436). The weighted salary figure, which adjusts for variations between different sectors, is up by almost £10,000 ($12,617) to £103,259 ($130,535). 

Professor Fiona Devine, OBE, Head of Alliance Manchester Business School, said: “We are extremely proud of our MBAs and all they go on to achieve in careers across the globe. Our position in today’s ranking is testament to their hard work and the commitment of our teaching, careers and support teams who ensure Manchester MBA students and alumni are amongst the best in the world. 

“As a research-led business school our MBAs benefit directly from the application of original thinking, alongside six months of live client projects. This combination gives our alumni the resilience and skills to take advantage of the opportunities presented by today’s ever-changing business landscape.” 

The news comes just a few days after the Eduniversal Business School Rankings 2016 placed AMBS sixth out of 154 business schools in the UK, first in the North West, and awarded the School a maximum five out of five for global influence. 

Last week the QS Global 250 Business Schools Report 2017 identified the top 250 full-time MBA programmes from around the world, and ranked Alliance Manchester Business School 11th in Europe for research excellence, and 16th for employability.
