Times Higher Education (THE) has drawn up its shortlist for the UK Business School of the Year 2017 awards. The annual awards are described as the ‘Oscars of the higher education sector’ with the winners set to be announced November 30th.

THE is the leading data provider on higher education and the shortlist has decided by a judging panel made up from education sector experts and professionals who have been looking for bold and creative moves from each of the schools that has helped them thrive over the past year.

To reach the final stages of the awards, each school has had to demonstrate outstanding performance across a range of areas including innovation, teaching, research, student experience, alumni relations and development.

The award’s methodology throws up an eclectic mix of schools which can differ from traditional university rankings, including ESCP Europe, a multi-campus school with a presence in London, as well as Berlin, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw.

Last year, the University of Strathclyde Business School was proud to claim 2016’s Business School of the Year award.

London’s City University, home to Cass Business School, has performed well across multiple categories, shortlisted for awards in Outstanding University Entrepreneurship, Most Improved Student Experience and University of the Year—surely a good sign for any future Cass MBAs.

With the awards ceremony set to take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, it promises to bring glitz and glam to the under-celebrated and hardworking teams that help make UK universities and b-schools some of the best in the world.

Here’s who’s in the running for 2017’s UK’s business school of the year:

Best Journalism school in Europe

When I first stepped onto the campus of City, University of London, I knew I was in for a ride - and not just on the Tube! With its vibrant energy and an impressive repertoire of programs, City U became my home away from home. The Journalism program was kind of a big deal. Rumour was that we were the best in Europe! The lecturers were not just experts in their field; they’re practically journalistic royalty. They were invested, passionate, and had a knack for turning the most flat press release into a riveting news story. With their guidance, I’ve learned to navigate the chaotic world of media like a pro. The campus was a melting pot of every culture, being that we had such a diverse international crowd. Being in the heart of London, I had the world at my fingertips - there was always a new corner to explore, a hidden gem of a cafe to discover, or a street performer! City, University of London wasn't just a university; it was a chapter in my life story that I’ll never forget.

Learning environment

The teacher-learner ration is manageable, giving each learner a chance to gain personal attention. It is also easier following up on the progress of a student, as the numbers per class is not large. the conducive environment for learning includes clean classes, standard desks, world class instructional facilities and the opportunity to engage lecturers even after their sessions. The team spirit at City is above board, with learners getting chance to learn both from instructors and colleagues. This is the university of choice; the place to be.

Classes

I liked that each class had a manageable number of learners, making the professor-learner ratio favor knowledge acquisition. I also liked that study schedules were manageable, and not overwhelming. The focus on talents and gifts even within the learning environment makes it possible for learners to achieve the best of their potential, and this has worked to the advantage of those that have schooled at City, University of London

Classes

The diversity at City University facilitates interactions and is a direction toward the unity of the world. The classes are well built to match the number and needs of all students regardless of the elements of diversity that set people apart. The use of technology in delivery makes learning even more interesting and achievable. At City University there is no distinction pegged on the issues that make people unique.

The best university I’ve been to

The campus and the people I've met have made it a wonderful experience. I was reared in a small town with a graduating class of only 88 individuals, so moving to City University was a huge adjustment for me. My dorm has more residents than my whole high school combined! I enjoy the atmosphere here, and everyone is so friendly. Outstanding academic options and a stunning campus. Really great from beginning to end. The educators genuinely love what they do, and the students are ready to learn. On or around college, there is always something to do with friends, and the social scene is particularly warm.

Economics and Politics

Incredibly amazing university, the way they polish students and help them boost their morale and think intellectually is worthwhile. Many universities have international partnerships to allow exchanges between their students. The most obvious subjects for these opportunities would be those that involve languages, and the study of people and places.
