Cardiff Business School has been ranked in the top 100 worldwide, by Korea University Business School (KUBS).

The Korea University Business School Worldwide Business Research Rankings, now in their second year, placed Cardiff Business School 86th overall.

According to the KUBS, the rankings are “based on a selection of 86 distinguished journals in the following academic disciplines: Accounting and Finance, Management, Management Information System, Marketing, Operations Management and Management Science, and International Business and Strategy”. Prepared and released by the Center for Business Research Analytics (BRAC), the results include Worldwide Rankings, Rankings by Academic Area and Rankings by Journal.

Professor Martin Kitchener, Dean of Cardiff Business School, said: “We thank our colleagues at Korea University Business School in Seoul, for recognising the quality and international impact of our research, which we translate directly into our teaching.

“We are home to a truly international community of academics, students and partners. Developing and deepening ties with global partners, in areas such as teaching, research and engagement, is hugely important to us, and we look forward to future collaboration with colleagues, and prospective, students in Korea.”

Cardiff Business School enjoys close collaborative relationships with a range of international institutions of Higher Education, primary amongst these are: Xiamen University; Cornell University; Melbourne Business School; and the University of Leuven (KU Leuven).

The School has been riding high in a number of recent world rankings, including placing in the top 100 of the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject (for Business and Management and Accounting and Finance). Last year, the School 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 acknowledged. 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.
