ABS

1 November 2011

Aston Business School (ABS) is among the top performing and most popular institutions of its kind in the UK, according to a league table published by a specialist rating agency.

ABS has been ranked in the '4 Palmes' category of
Eduniversal’s UK Business School Ranking 2011 - placing it in the ‘Top Business School’ category and the 11th highest rated School in the UK.

Business schools across 150 countries worldwide were involved in the annual survey which is designed to provide students, professionals and academics with a universal perspective on higher education.  The judging criteria included: International recognition through accreditations; memberships and rankings; international awareness through Deans’ votes and the recommendations of independent experts.

Country by country, Deans of the top 1,000 business schools were asked a simple question: “Which business school(s) would you recommend to anyone wishing to study in this country?”

The results of the survey, which was carried out from December 2010 to March 2011, were disclosed in Shanghai this month (October) at the Eduniversal World Convention.

It is the latest ratings success, for Aston Business School. Earlier this year, The MBA programme was again named one of the best in the world according to the Economist Which MBA Ranking 2011. In this latest ranking, ABS’s Full-time MBA was placed at 77th in the world, 28th in Europe and 13th in the UK. In the survey, ABS performed particularly well for its careers service and support. It was ranked 1st in the UK for “Student assessment of career service” and 2nd in the UK for “Open new career opportunities”.

Separately and also this year, Aston Business School was ranked 31st in the world and 5th in the UK by the Financial Times 2011 Masters in Management ranking.
