What are the Best Business Schools?

Top Business Schools in the UK 2013/14

The QS Global 200 Business Schools Report is split in regions, allowing us to see which schools in each geography are considered to be the strongest by actively hiring MBA employers – the responses of which form the basis of the report.

Tellingly, of the 60 European schools which are included in the list, 19 are based in the UK. This will be no surprise to those acquainted with the history of business education. The country was one of the first places outside of North America (see the top 10 schools in the US), to really take to the MBA, with London Business School and Manchester Business School entering the market in the 60s.

Since then, the market has grown considerably as the MBA became more and more entrenched in international hiring policies, with the many of the UK’s prestigious public sector research universities boasting equally strong sister institutions of business education.

Thus the country boasts considerable pedigree in the realm of business education, and attracts huge numbers of students from around the world to study in its prestigious schools.

But of these, which do employers think are the top business schools in the UK?

College and has now turned it into a business, brick and mortar has been featured in major magazines etc. It's a body care line.
If you can start while in school, I'd say that's the best. Pick something that you can sell to students, friends, family or over the internet. It can be a product or a service, but make sure that you stick with it even if it doesn't seem to pay off. Figure out what you like and what you are good at, what works with your personality so you can do it for the long haul.
also, there are things that people don't think about like public services, speaking at jr
