Cambridge MBA climbs to 13th in global FT rankings


Top spot for one-year UK programmes for third straight year.

Cambridge Judge Business School
The annual Financial Times global MBA rankings, published today (26 January), place Cambridge Judge Business School 13th, up from 16th the previous year, holding our place as the top ranked one-year MBA programme in the UK for the third consecutive year.

The Cambridge MBA was also ranked in the world’s top 10 business schools in two key areas of the FT’s survey: 4th for aims achieved and 5th for value for money, based on feedback from alumni in response to the survey.

The FT’s ranking of MBA programmes follows by one month the results of the UK’s Research Excellence Framework (REF), which rated nearly nine out of ten submissions from Cambridge Judge as “world leading” or “internationally excellent”.

Dean of the School, Christoph Loch, said:

I am heartened and proud of the excellent result by Cambridge Judge in this major ranking by the Financial Times. This ranking of the Cambridge MBA in the global top 15 builds on several years of solid results, and is complemented by our recent REF position and the rankings of our other programmes. While these surveys are useful, they do not define our strategy and mission – which is to deliver a transformational experience to students of varied career aspirations, and to create a world leading, research-based business school that values excellence in teaching.
