RHUL's School of Management is in the top 20 for UK business schools, ranked 5th (out of 15) in London, and for regional universities we are second after Oxford University for university business and management departments in the South East of England.
The School of Management has seen excellent improvement on its RAE return from the exercise in 2001. The research profile is on a 5-point scale: 4* world ranking; 3* internationally excellent; 2* internationally recognised; 1* nationally recognised; 0 unclassified. The School research profile was:
School of Management RAE 2008
| 4* ||3* ||2* ||1* ||0* |
| 15% || 40% || 40% || 5% || 0% |
This means that 95% of the research is international; 55% in the top 2 categories.
According to the THES
the School of Management has a weighted Grade Point Average of 2.65 which places the School joint 19th (out of 90) in the Business and Management UOA, above the national profile of 2.55. The School is in the upper quartile of all business and management submissions.
In 2001 the RAE applied a single grade, and the School obtained 4, along with 20 other departments also ranked 4. With a GPA ranking, we can now see how the 4-ranked departments performed in 2008. Twelve of the Business and Management U that scored 4 in the 2001 RAE that have a lower GPA in 2008 than the Royal Holloway School of Management, and only 5 Business and Management departments that scored 4 in the 2001 RAE that have a higher 2008 GPA this time round. Moreover 2 departments that scored 5 in the 2001 RAE now have a lower 2008 GPA than the Royal Holloway School of Management. On this basis, the School of Management is on a strong upward trajectory.
