Cambridge MBA climbs to 10th in global FT rankings

Top spot in UK one-year programmes category for fourth straight year.

MBA 2011

The annual Financial Times global MBA rankings, published today (25 January), place Cambridge Judge Business School 10th, up from 13th the previous year. Cambridge Judge held our place as the top ranked one-year MBA programme in the UK for the fourth consecutive year.

The Cambridge MBA also ranked in the world’s top 10 business schools in such areas as aims achieved, at joint fifth place; career progress, improving from 12th to sixth; and value for money, rising from fifth to fourth, based on responses from alumni who responded to the survey.

In addition, Cambridge Judge improved its ranking in the research category from 39th to 26th. The UK’s most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF), which is conducted every six years, rated nearly nine out of ten submissions from Cambridge Judge as “world leading” or “internationally excellent”.

Dean of the School, Christoph Loch, said:

I am proud and pleased by the fine showing of Cambridge Judge in this major ranking by the Financial Times, which reflects the solid results our MBA programme has achieved in recent years. The positive feedback from our alumni, coupled with recognition for our research, show that we are making big strides as Cambridge Judge enters its second quarter century this year. Yet while surveys are useful, they do not define our mission and strategy – which is to create a transformational experience for students, enabling and encouraging them to pursue careers that they can proudly look back on in 30 years and feel they have made a positive difference.
