70th in the world: QS World Rankings By Subject

Leeds University Business School has moved up 10 places to joint 70th in the world for Business and Management in the recent QS World University Rankings By Subject 2022.

The QS World University Rankings By Subject 2022 are based upon academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact. 

Each of the subject rankings is compiled using four sources. The first two of these are QS’s global surveys of academics and employers, which are used to assess institutions’ international reputations in each subject. The second two indicators assess research impact (based on research citations per paper), and h-index (the productivity and impact of published work), in the relevant subject. You can read more about the methodology on the QS website.

Professor Julia Bennell, the Business School’s Executive Dean, commented:

“Over the last four years, we’ve consolidated our position in the top 100 for Business and Management in the QS World University Rankings By Subject. To see us rise again to 70th is a reflection of how our reputation continues to grow on the world stage.”

This is a great achievement and I would like to congratulate our staff, students and alumni on this fantastic result.

“We scored very strongly again for research citations and h-index which demonstrates the breadth and impact of our research outputs. As a research-led institution we embrace a diversity of views, and it is this world-leading research that informs our innovative student programmes.”
