The University of Exeter Business School has the most satisfied business students in the UK - for the fourth year running.
The annual survey was completed by over 223,000 students at more than 155 higher education institutions across the country. It asks final year students to rate their university experience in seven areas: teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, personal development and overall satisfaction. The results are published for each subject and the School was placed first for ‘overall satisfaction’ in Business, Management, Accounting and Finance.
In addition to the success of the Business School, the University of Exeter was ranked fourth amongst ‘full service’ universities. The results of the survey follow on from recent successes achieved by both the School and the University in the rankings produced by the national press, which are widely used as the measure of a university’s quality. In The Times Good University Guide 2010, the University entered the UK top ten for the first time whilst the Business School was placed firmly in the top ten in each subject area, which was also the case in The Guardian table.
Commenting on the results of the School’s latest success, Professor Richard Lamming, Director of the Business School said ‘To maintain our leading position for the fourth year in a row is an exceptional achievement and demonstrates how much energy we put into creating an outstanding student experience. In addition to a first class education, our students clearly value the wide-ranging support they receive from staff across the School. The £25 million investment in the Business School will enhance our appeal to current and future students and help to keep us at No.1.’
