CEO magazine banner

Birmingham Business School is delighted to announce that our MBA has achieved an enviable #7 ranking position within CEO Magazine’s MBA Rankings 2015 and a placement of #3 within their European Business School Rankings section.

CEO Magazine’s new annual MBA rankings have been compiled based upon key performance indicators considered to be of interest and value to potential students. Therefore, international diversity, class sizes, student work experience, faculty-to-student ratios, and faculty qualifications – both academic and professional – have been given considerable weight. With competition between business schools continuing to increase, it is important for business schools to understand what students really want. Schools ranked highly by CEO Magazine have been successful in achieving this goal.
