Lancaster University Management School’s full time MBA has climbed 22 places to be ranked 66th in the 2021 WhichMBA? rankings, published today by The Economist.

WhichMBA? compiles data from alumni of 100 MBA programmes run by universities across the world. In the 2021 rankings, LUMS is positioned 13th globally and first in the UK for the education experience delivered to its students.

“I am delighted to see LUMS rise in these rankings which not only reflects the quality MBA we offer, but also the calibre, efforts and enthusiasm of the top class students we attract to the programme from around the world,” said Dr Robyn Remke, MBA programme director at Lancaster University Management School. “We pride ourselves on the educationally-challenging experience we offer our students and I’m particularly pleased to see that we were able to preserve this experience - even while the pandemic forced part of the programme to be delivered online.”

LUMS Dean, Professor Angus Laing, said: “It is fantastic to see LUMS securing its best yet position within these rankings. Our Management School has a deep history of providing business education programmes of the highest quality – and data like this demonstrates the real impact that our MBA continues to deliver for our alumni, helping them to carve out rich and rewarding careers. I would like to thank all our MBA students and alumni for taking part, and the team of academics and staff who work tirelessly to deliver this programme.”

Lancaster University consistently ranks within the top ten of the three major league tables in the UK. Out of more than 120 UK universities, Lancaster is currently 8th in the Complete University Guide 2021, and is 10th in both the Guardian University Guide 2021 and The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.
