The survey ranks the University 5th for business studies, ahead of Manchester (24th), Warwick (37th) and Southampton (85th). This ranking relates to undergraduate students’ (mostly final year) overall satisfaction with the quality of their course.
Kent Business School rose more than 20 places in rank compared to 2014 across all three subject areas of accounting, business studies and management studies. Areas that improved significantly are “teaching” and “assessment and feedback”.
The results of this year’s survey were highly anticipated, as UK students graduating in 2015 are the first cohort to have paid the £9,000 annual fees. Kent Business School has shown the quality of its programmes by improving on 2014 performance, moving from 93% to 94% for overall satisfaction.
The number of students participating in the survey at Kent Business School also increased to 77%, above the sector level response of 71%.
With more students rating us more highly than in previous years, KBS is on an upwards trajectory in terms of growth and performance.
