sorry for the question but it is not the first time that happens... do you first apply and then search for information? I would expect first to gather information and after to apply :-)

Surrey's in a lovely town. It claims to be part of a 'handful' of schools with double accreditation, but actually there are 15 AACSB schools in the UK (https://www.aacsb.net/eweb/DynamicPage.aspx?Site=AACSB&WebKey=00E50DA9-8BB0-4A32-B7F7-0A92E98DF5C6), and Surrey is not ranked by any of the rankings, as far as I know, and while its undergraduate employability is good, I would love to see data at the postgraduate level.

I think if you were to pick one of the other AACSB schools at random, it would be a better choice.

One of my friend has done mba from surrey, if you want i can put you in touch with him. As per him surrey is excellent business with top notch faculty and campus facilities, There career service is amazing and my friend is now working in Barclays in london. Although they have never shown in any important ranking but they are far better than many ranked mba program. The only reason they are not ranked is they dont bother about ranking rather places their full focus on quality education.

It is nonsense to write: "Although they have never shown in any important ranking but they are far better than many ranked mba program. The only reason they are not ranked is they dont bother about ranking rather places their full focus on quality education."

1. If their programme was far better than, for example, the schools in the FT's top 100 then there would be some independently verifiable fact to support it. Go and find one.

2. There is no contradiction between being rankings and educating. The journalists who make the rankings are not professors, therefore it takes no time away from teaching -- or vice versa.

The ranking are quantitative processes which evaluate salary, seniority and other outcomes. If Surrey did very well on those metrics then it would be in the rankings.

Let's concretely take the case of your friend who works for Barclays. Most MBAs would be hired at the Associate level by Barclays Capital, on a salary of at least $85,000. Was your friend hired into that role? How many Surrey MBAs are in similar roles?

The top 100 schools graduate almost all of their graduates onto roles of at least that level of seniority. That just will not be the case at Surrey -- if it was, they would be in a ranking.

Dear Duncan, You are right my friend is getting much lesser than 85k and his position is also very junior and back office i.e. document controller. Further as i dont have any first hand experience of surrey mba, the views expressed by me in my earlier posting were not infact mine but what i heard from my friend and i posted the same with good intention.
