Surrey has swooped straight into the top ten in the Guardian’s new category ranking the best Accounting & Finance degrees in the UK and our programmes in the field of Business, Management and Marketing have jumped an impressive 15 places to number 15, cementing Surrey Business School’s place among the top business schools in the UK.

The Guardian league table reflects the high levels of student satisfaction at Surrey and is underpinned by investment in a number of high-profile new additions to our staff.

Professor David Goss, Head of Surrey Business School, commented: “It’s great to see our commitment to providing our students with the best business education possible paying off. We aim to improve the experience every year which is why, for 2015, we have introduced Business Management pathways and the innovative MBus qualification, allowing students to tailor their degree to match their specialist career aspirations or continue to a Masters qualification.

"We believe our programmes combine the best in intellectual rigour and practical business applications, reflected in our growing list of professional accreditations and industry collaborators. We are also pioneering new and exciting directions in business education with our unique BSc in Sustainable Enterprise Management – expanding the understanding of what it means to do business and preparing a new generation of managers and entrepreneurs for the challenges of the twenty-first century’s globalised digital economy.”

The School’s success reflects that of the University as a whole, with Surrey rising to sixth in the Guardian’s overall University rankings.
