Based on statistics including class size, tuition fees and international diversity, the University of Exeter Business School’s One Planet MBA program was placed in the “tier 1” category of courses, both in Europe and globally.
Of 140 institutions ranked, the full-time One Planet MBA was one of only 28 in Europe to be given top tier status; the part-time program one of only 23.
“[It’s] a fantastic achievement,” said the One Planet MBA’s director, Nicholas Forsans.
“[Our position] demonstrates the value and relevance of our MBA program in a world where disruption is not only economic and financial, but also social, environmental and technological,” he said.
Since the program’s creation five years ago, University of Exeter Business School has made the One Planet MBA fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
In partnership with the World Wildlife Fund, it focuses on, among other things: sustainability; innovative business models; positive institutional and societal change.
Such a unique approach has only been made possible by the school’s relationship with a global network of leading corporate partners, including IBM, Accenture, Coca-Cola, Thomson Reuters and IKEA.
Nicholas praised students who have passed through the program. “Our…..MBA graduates and alumni are defined by their mind-set and their ability to navigate their organizations through challenges, while delivering change for good,” he said.
