UK Executive MBA Ranking

Taking an executive MBA in the UK has become an icreasingly popular way to get your MBA. Almost all of the business schools in the UK now offer an executive MBA in some format. Part time or modular being the most common although some also provide distance learning MBAs with some residential classes.

Executive MBAs provide a way to keep the cash coming while you study, but they also usually mean two or more years of high workloads and tough deadlines while still doing your "day job". There aren't any published rankings of executive MBAs in the UK, but based purely on anecdotal evidence the following are worth checking out.

Top UK executive MBAs

1 London Business School (LBS) EMBA
2 Cranfield EMBA
3 Manchester
4 Warwick part time & modular MBA
5 Ashridge

The LBS EMBA, just like its full time MBA, is top of the pile in the UK. The cost of the programme reflects this with fees in 2000/2001 around £36,000 for the two year course. The other MBA courses on the list are not as expensive, but don't have the reputation of an international - class school while still being good national schools.

What turns out to be the best value MBA depends on what you hope to get from it. As well as being an excellent course, the LBS EMBA provides the "calling card" MBA that many candidates want. The other schools listed here also have weight with recruiters in the UK (and the rest of Europe) although less so outside of Europe.
