Aston Business School’s Masters programmes leading globally for careers for third year running

Aston Business School’s Masters programmes have achieved 1st in the world for careers in rankings released by the Financial Times on 5th October 2009.

This measure of career progression surveyed alumni of the MSc in International Business three years after they completed their course, asking them to indicate their level of seniority and the size of company in which they are employed.  

The overall rankings are established by looking at 16 different aspects of the MSc course, including value for money, salary today and percentage of international students.  Overall, Aston was ranked fourth in the UK and 30th in the world – only nine British business schools made it into the top 50.
