Bradford MBA graduates command third highest salary increases in UK

30 January 2012

Bradford University School of Management has retained its position as one of the world’s top 100 elite MBA business schools and number one in Yorkshire in the latest FT rankings out today (Monday 30 January 2012).

It is also ranked third in the UK for achieving the highest MBA salary increases and tenth in the world for value for money of its programme against the quality of its teaching. Three years after graduation, Bradford MBA students are paid 110% more – the only two other business schools in the UK with higher salary increases were London Business School (134%) and Manchester (116%).

Karsten Naylor graduated from the full time MBA at Bradford University School of Management in December 2008 and is now Head of Quality Assurance at The Original Factory Shop. He said: “Despite finishing my MBA at an extremely difficult time in the jobs market, I have managed to significantly boost my career and earnings already and hope to continue reaping the rewards throughout my career. The MBA experience gave me a better all round understanding of business that allowed me to move from manager to director level in quality assurance using my understanding of areas like finance and intellectual property. I’m still an actively involved member of the School’s international alumni network and I would recommend the Bradford MBA to ambitious middle managers.”

Terry Carroll, Bradford University School of Management alumnus, former Treasurer of Halifax and CEO of National & Provincial, gave a guest lecture on the credit crisis at the School last week. He said: “When I came to Bradford from the south of England in the late 1960s, I had no idea what to expect. I fell in love with the School of Management, the city and Yorkshire and have stayed ever since. My career (as a CEO, FD, manager and consultant) has spanned major UK institutions here in the region. Doing my business degree at Bradford was the cleverest thing I ever did and I am proud that my former school is still at the top of its class in the region and internationally.”
