AMBA-ACCREDITED

Royal Holloway School of Management


Age: 21

History: Part of Royal Holloway, University of London, which was founded in 1886. The school was founded in 1990, gained management school status in 1993 and AMBA accreditation in 2005.

Address: Close to Heathrow and 19 miles from central London, at Royal Holloway's beautiful 120-acre parkland campus in Egham, Surrey.

Ambience: Recently upgraded buildings stand close to Thomas Holloway's Founder's Building, the design of which was based on a French chateau.

Vital statistics: The school has expanded rapidly, and now has more than 1,000 undergraduate and 590 postgraduate students. It has eight Masters programmes and a doctoral programme, and the MBA International Management is taught both full-time and by distance learning. The school also offers a wide array of Masters and MSc courses.

Added value: All graduates are awarded University of London degrees. AMBA accredits the MBA and MSc International Management, while Business Information Systems and Sustainability and Management are ESRC accredited.

Easy to get into? The undergraduate management degree requires 340 UCAS points (AAB) this year. The ratio of applications to available places is 5:1 for undergraduates, 6:1 for Postgrads and 12:1 for the MBA. The latter also requires three years' work experience and a good first degree.

Gurus: Professors include Brendan McSweeney, management; Chris Smith and Ed Clark, organisation studies; Chris Hackley and Pauline MacLaren, marketing; Jos Gamble, international business; Christopher Napier, accounting.

International connections: Heathrow is on your doorstep, and the school's teaching and research faculty hail from all over the world. Many of the programmes have a strong international focus, and around 53 per cent of students at the School come from overseas.

Student profile: The female to male ratio is 49:51 for the postgraduate programmes and 52:48 on undergraduate. The average age on the MBA is 29.

Costs: The MBA International Management is £16,250 for EU, UK and overseas participants.

Who's the boss? Professor Chris Smith, an expert in comparative management.
