The Financial Times’ new ranking of Top MBAs for Finance sees Alliance Manchester Business School ranked 29th in the world and positioned as 5th in the UK and 10th in Europe.
The new table focuses on MBAs working in finance three years after graduation and is assembled using data gathered from alumni surveys as part of the FT’s Global MBA ranking which was released in January 2017. The survey criteria focused on areas such as salary, salary increase and research.
The FT found that Class of 2013 MBAs working in finance enjoy a salary increase of 109% three years after graduating, with an average salary of $147,000. They also benefit from impressive value for money according to the ranking, with the School placing 15th in the table.
Head of Postgraduate Careers and Employability, Chris Garnett said: “I am delighted that this ranking shows how successful our students are after completing an MBA here at Alliance MBS.
"Many of our students join distinguished employers such as American Express, Admiral, Credit Suisse and the FCA. Our success in placing students in these organisations and the areas of the sector they focus on reflects the strong leadership and team working skills that characterise our programme.”
