Riding high in world rankings

16 March 2017

Cardiff Business School has been ranked in the top 100 in the latest world rankings by subject, published Wednesday 8 March 2017.

This year, Business and Management moved into the 51 – 100 band in the QS World University Rankings by Subject, while Accounting and Finance retained its position in the same band.

Now in their seventh year, the QS rankings are the definitive guide to the quality of subjects at universities worldwide. They are compiled by evaluating 4,438 universities across the world and examining some 1,117 institutions. In total, over 127m citation attributions and 18,900 programs are analysed.

Professor Martin Kitchener, Dean of Cardiff Business School, responded to the School’s latest success: “It is very welcome to see the QS World Rankings by Subject recognise the development, and overall quality, of our provision.

“To have both Business and Management and Accounting and Finance place in the top 100 is to be celebrated, but we are certainly not complacent. We are committed to continued improvement and proud to be considered among other world-leading providers. We work hard to ensure that our more than 3,000 students are academically satisfied, challenged, and prepared to make a significant contribution to business and society.

“This is in line with our ambition to revolutionise business and management education in the UK, through our progressive strategy to deliver Public Value. This means directing our resources and actions to tackling some of the grand challenges we face, ensuring that we stimulate social improvement alongside economic improvement.”

Cardiff Business School has a long history of success and last year broke into the world’s top 100 for Business and Economics in the 2016-2017 Times Higher Education (THE) World University rankings by subject (placing 93rd). In addition, the School’s research output and approach has been celebrated. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) ranked the School 6th (out of 101 business schools in the UK) for the quality of its research and 1st for research environment. It is also one of only two schools to be ranked in the top 10 of each Government research exercise since 1992.
