Brum MBAs lead.

Birmingham Business School at the University of Birmingham is the leading provider of MBA programmes.

It has snatched the UK top spot in the Economist Intelligence Unit's ranking of the world's 100 best full-time MBA programmes.

It places Birmingham ahead of other university business schools including Aston, Warwick, LBS and Oxford.

The ranking is based on 21,000 students' ratings of their MBA delivering the elements they consider essential, including opening new career opportunities; furthering career prospects; personal development and educational experience; increase in salary and the potential to network.

The MBA market is booming in Europe with more than 700 programmes currently on offer. Birmingham Business School has climbed six places from last year to rank as the number one provider in the UK, while its global rating has risen 13 places to number 25.

Warwick came fourth in the UK and 30th overall while Aston was tenth and 44th respectively.

Prof Jonathan Michie, director of Birmingham Business School, said: 'We are delighted with our number one position.'

The overall ranking was dominated by US schools.
