Pathways to Success: Strategic groups of UK business schools

Chartered ABS_Pathways To Success_2017

Pathways to Success provides analysis of the variety of structures, strategies and business models adopted by UK business schools.

The survey data, alongside public data, provides evidence of successful differentiation in the context of an increasingly competitive environment. The analysis reveals a set of distinctive groups of business schools based on how they are positioned, structured and strategically focused, and how they perform in teaching and research.

This project was designed to help Deans and Heads of Schools to develop their strategic ambitions from their own unique starting points. The findings provide a set of relative indicators using data such as school finances, staff-student ratios, REF performances, the NSS, governance structures, resourcing levels, and campus locations.
