CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings 2016

University of Exeter MBA ranked among the world’s best

The University of Exeter Business School’s award-winning One Planet MBA course has been ranked once again as among the best in the world.

The course, targeted at aspiring business leaders wishing to develop innovative new business models has been placed in the “Tier 1” of courses in CEO Magazine’s 2016 Global MBA rankings for both Europe and the rest of the world.

The poll was introduced in 2012 and this year 140 institutions took part. It is based on information about the learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity and gender make-up.

The University of Exeter Business School’s One Planet MBA is designed to help participants promote “change for good” and enable their organisations to become resilient in a fast-changing environment in light of significant global challenges ahead.

Staff at the Business School work with leading corporate partners around the world to teach the programme. The full-time version is one of only 28 in Europe to be given Tier 1 status by the magazine and the part-time version one of 23.

Professor Nicolas Forsans, Director of One Planet MBA programmes, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for all of us, and most importantly our One Planet MBA graduates and our leading corporate partners who have supported us since the creation of the programme five years ago.

“Our position in CEO Magazine’s 2016 MBA rankings provides further evidence that our bold efforts to make the MBA qualification fit for the challenges of the 21st century have succeeded. It demonstrates the value and relevance of our MBA programmes in a world where disruption is not only economic and financial, but also social, environmental and technological.

“Our One Planet MBA graduates and alumni are defined by their mindset and their ability to navigate their organisations through those challenges while delivering change - for good. Our unique approach to business education delivers academic rigour and practical relevance to the business world. This is made possible through working closely with dozens of leading corporate partners worldwide.”

CEO Magazine's Group Editor-in-Chief, Alexandra Skinner said: “We are thrilled with the uptake and response to this year’s survey. The increase in the number of business schools participating, and the inclusion of some very well-known and highly regarded players within the market, serve to further establish the CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings as a go-to reference tool for future MBA students”
