In global rankings
announced by the Financial Times this week, graduates of the MSc in
International Business from Aston Business School topped the table for
their career status. This measure of career progression three years
after completing a course surveyed alumni, asking them to rate their
experience. It also factored in the size of company they work for and
the level of seniority they have so far achieved. Aston Business School
was rated number one.
The overall rankings are established by looking at 16 different
points of the MSc course, including value for money, salary today and
percentage of international students. Aston Business School achieved
overall joint 18th in the world, alongside Vienna University of
Economics and Business in Austria.
The School’s Msc rates as the best in the UK outside London. Only ten British schools made it into top 50.
The rankings also reveal that 76% of Aston students were employed within only 3 months of graduating.
Professor Michael West, Executive Dean at Aston Business School
said: “The survey showed that ‘career prospects’ were the most
important factor in choosing to do a Masters degree. We are pleased
that the rankings highlight Aston as number one in equipping its
students with exactly what they need for their careers, and that is the
knowledge and confidence to progress into senior roles within the sort
of businesses they want to work in.”
