Business School disciplines rise up influential Times rankings
The University of Exeter Business School has secured exceptional results in the influential The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019, with all its disciplines rising up the subject rankings.
The discipline of Business and Management (Business Studies) saw the biggest increase, rising seven places to 8th in the UK. Accounting and Finance rose four places to 7th in the UK, whilst Economics rose five places to 13th in the rankings.
Commenting on the success, Pro Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean of the Business School, Professor David Bruce Allen, said:
“At the University of Exeter Business School, our mission is to deliver outstanding and innovative business education and research that address the major challenges confronting businesses and society. We are also committed to becoming one of the world’s leading business schools.
“These fantastic results – with two of our subjects now in the top ten and significant improvements across all disciplines - are an important milestone in this journey. They clearly demonstrate our commitment to delivering the best possible educational experience for our students.”
The University also rose two places to 12th nationally in the overall ranking and is now top in the South West. The league table cites Exeter’s increased spending on student facilities and services, improved staffing levels and one of the highest degree completion rates in the country as being behind the University’s rise in the rankings.
