DCU Business School MSc Management has been ranked 85th in the world by the influential Financial Times ranking representing a rise in the programme’s ranking from the previous year.
The prestigious Financial Times ranking system evaluates and ranks postgraduate Management programmes against a number of criteria which include graduate outcomes and alumni evaluation of the programme, international outlook, and female participation in the programme.
DCU’s MSc Management has performed particularly well in a number of areas. It was ranked 26th in the world for value for money. Graduates of the programme have reported a 44% increase in income since completing the programme and 100% of graduates reported being employed three months after graduation pointing to DCU’s strong track record in industry engagement and graduate employability.
47% of faculty members are female, among the highest of the ranked institutions. This follows the Financial Times’ recent recognition of DCU Business School’s high levels of gender equality among faculty members.
The MSc Management programme has two strands, one suitable for non-Business graduates and another for Business degree holders specialising in Strategy. Commenting on the MSc Management’s rankings rise, Programme Chair Dr Declan Curran said, “We’re pleased to see the MSc Management’s rise in the Financial Times ranking this year and to be recognised in the world top 100 along with other world-leading institutions. Features of the programme include a practicum project where our students engage with real-life problems presented by companies we work with. This exposure to industry not only allows students to put theory into practice but prepares graduates for the workplace. They also complete the unique and highly regarded Next Generation Management module, which provides students with the opportunity to develop the competencies required for successful management and leadership careers. The module employs a unique self-directed learning approach which sets our graduates apart and is a strong factor in the programme’s ranking”.
