Lancaster has charged ahead of its Russell Group peers to be ranked 10th in the Guardian League table 2015, confirming its place among the world’s elite institutions.

The Guardian University Guide 2015 shows rises for all management subjects at Lancaster. Accounting and Finance is ranked 4th, Business and Management Studies 11th, and Economics 15th. The previous year's guide did not include a separate ranking for Accounting and Finance, but Business and Management Studies has moved up from 15th last year, and Economics is up from 19th.

The table ranks universities on a number of measures including the percentage of graduates who find graduate-level jobs, teaching quality, student satisfaction and spend per student. Other universities ranked in the top ten include Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and Warwick.

Lancaster is consistently highly placed in all major league tables. This latest result comes shortly after Lancaster's excellent position in the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 ranking of the world’s best young universities. Ranked 10th, a climb of 4 places, Lancaster is the highest ranked of only 14 UK universities to be listed.

Lancaster is also the leading university in the North West, according to The Complete University Guide 2015.
