The QS Business Schools Report, a league table of MBA providers worldwide, gives an annual overview of Business Schools providing the best training for managers and leaders.

In the face of increasing globalisation, those schools with a strong international outlook and student body performed well in the tables. Students from more than 60 countries study on the MBA programme with Oxford Brookes.

The Business School is one of the leaders in the field of coaching and mentoring, which has become widely adopted in management practice. The International Centre for Coaching and Leadership Development at Wheatley is one of the foremost centres of its kind.

The Oxford Brookes Business School programme climbed six places in the UK and was rated more highly in the QS tables than MBAs taught at the University of Edinburgh Business School and Durham Business School.

Professor Chris Cooper, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the Faculty of Business (pictured), commented: "We are delighted to have risen in the MBA rankings. This is testament to the investment we are putting into the Oxford Brookes MBA and the dedication of the programme team."
