Warwick Business School has retained its place as the UK’s No. 1 in a global ranking of Distance Learning and Online MBA programmes. QS, an organisation with offices around the world working to promote business education, has today published its second Distance Learning/Online MBA ranking.
WBS is rated top in the UK, and second in the world. No less than five other UK business schools appear in the Top 10, together with three from the USA and one from Spain. In total, 30 schools are ranked, 17 from the USA and 13 from Europe.
The performance indicators used to calculate the ranking are wide-ranging and rigorous, and include:
perceptions of employers of MBA graduates
quality and diversity of students and faculty
level of accreditation (WBS is triple-accredited and the first in the UK to achieve this)
teaching and learning experience.
Professor Mark Taylor, Dean of WBS, comments, “With no less than six UK schools in the top ten, it is gratifying to see the performance of the Warwick Distance Learning MBA is rated the UK’s best. We will continue to use the best interactive web-based resources and online study materials to bring the same quality and creative teaching to our distance learning MBAs as is enjoyed by our students here on campus.”
Distance and online learning MBAs at accredited business schools such as WBS give working managers the opportunity to gain a world-class business education without the need to relocate or take a career break. There are currently around 2,000 students on the Warwick MBA, studying by full-time, distance learning, or through the Executive MBA. Additionally, the Warwick Global Energy MBA can be taken by managers and executives working in or for the energy sector anywhere in the world.
