Bayes courses rank highly in both The Guardian University Guide 2024 and The Times Good University Guide 2024

The School improves positions nationally for Marketing, Accounting and Finance programmes

Bayes Business School’s programmes have been highly ranked by both The Guardian University Guide 2024 and The Times Good University Guide 2024 subject league tables.

In The Guardian’s ranking, Marketing courses at Bayes moved up four places to rank as the best in the UK, while Accounting and Finance programmes (which includes actuarial science) moved up one place to 29th in the UK. Business and Management programmes came 22nd in the UK and 4th in London.

Focusing primarily on the quality of teaching and the job prospects of graduates, The Guardian’s ranking scores university courses on nine measurements including what students say about their teaching, feedback and the course itself in the annual National Student Survey.

In The Times Good University Guide, Business, Management and Marketing programmes at Bayes moved up two places to 14th in the UK, and were ranked 2nd in the UK for research quality and 8th in the UK for entry standards. Accounting and Finance courses maintained the 12th place position from last year, and were ranked 2nd in the UK for research quality. Both clusters were ranked 4th in London.

The Times Good University Guide is an annual publication aimed at providing prospective students with the information they need to make an informed choice about their higher education institution and programme of study. The guide evaluates a number of key factors such as student satisfaction, degree completion, fees and graduate employment statistics.

Professor Richard Payne, Deputy Dean of Bayes Business School, said:

We are delighted with our continued strong showing in these rankings. While there is always work to do, the positive light that they shed on the educational and research strengths of the School reflects very positively on the hard work of both our students and our colleagues.

Dr Martin Rich, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programmes at Bayes, said:

These are very pleasing results and they reflect the work of our dedicated course directors, teaching colleagues, careers team and support staff in delivering an engaging, enjoyable and rewarding student experience to our undergraduates.

A huge amount of credit and thanks must also go to our excellent set of students and alumni, who themselves have helped to create a vibrant and enriching student experience.
