In its latest ranking of MBA programmes, published 9 September 2015, Forbes has ranked the Lancaster MBA 9th in the world for one-year courses outside the US.

The key metric in Forbes’ MBA ranking is the return on investment achieved by the class of 2010. Forbes surveyed alumni from 95 business schools around the world and compared graduates’ earnings in their first five years out of business school to their opportunity cost to arrive at a five-year MBA gain, which determines the final rank.

The Lancaster MBA has risen two places since the last Forbes ranking in 2013.

Peter Lenney, Director of the Lancaster Full-time MBA, said: “This excellent ranking is a fantastic achievement for the Lancaster MBA. It’s the result of the success of our graduates in their careers and the quality of the programme we deliver here at Lancaster.”
