The league tables recognised the Executive MBA programme for having one of the most gender balanced programmes in the world and also placed Leeds within the top 20 business schools globally for the quality of its faculty and facilities.
The Leeds Executive MBA is designed to offer a challenging and exciting developmental experience that is flexible enough to fit into the lives of busy executives. It is delivered over a number of three or four day blocks over weekdays and weekends to minimise time away from the workplace. The learning experience is focused on practice and the aim is to develop more effective and reflective managers and leaders. All teaching takes place in dedicated executive conference facilities and there are ample opportunities to participate in wider activities such as international study tours.
The rankings success follows recent accolades for the Business School including accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which marked the final step in achieving ‘triple accreditation’ from the world’s most recognised accreditation bodies.
Dean of Leeds University Business School, Professor Peter Moizer, said: "I’m delighted that the quality of our Executive MBA programme has once again been recognised, particularly when we are competing against some of the world’s leading institutions. Maintaining our position as number one in the north of England and among the best in the UK reflects the outstanding effort and commitment of my colleagues to the programme.”
