TCalyn - Leeds MBA Programme Quality

The Leeds MBA is reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that it reflects the latest thinking and research. Modules are taught by academic staff, who understand how to put theory into practice and who have experience of teaching on MBA programmes with practising managers. Reinforced by close links with external organisations, consultancy experience and research expertise, most are pre-eminent in their field. Leeds University Business School received a RAE Rating of 5 in the last research assessment exercise.

Which MBA?
The Leeds MBA has risen to 8th in the UK and 40th in the world in Which MBA? 2006, the annual international survey run by The Economist. The survey is based on responses from 20,000 students and alumni worldwide. Its methodology draws substantially on evaluations by the students of 2005/06 and the previous 3 years of alumni, in addition to performance data about the school. 22% of each school’s score is derived from students’ evaluations.

The Leeds MBA is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA). Accreditation is a measure of the quality of an MBA programme and is often used by managers, employers and professional bodies to 'rate' MBA programmes and their schools. AMBA is widely recognised as the guardian of MBA quality. It grants accreditation only after an extensive review of the MBA programmes and of the Business School, based on the following criteria: breadth and content of the programme, quality of teaching, assessment procedures, research and consultancy activity, admission standards and number of students on a programme.
