Our reputation

Loughborough is a research intensive University, with the School of Business and Economics being ranked 13th overall in terms of research power, with 75% of its research deemed 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

We rank consistently highly for teaching and student experience too; The Guardian League Tables 2017 and The Complete University Guide 2017 ranked Loughborough University 4th and 7th in the UK respectively, and The Complete University Guide 2017 recently ranked us 1st for Librarianship and Information Management, 7th for Business Studies and 5th for Accounting and Finance. Loughborough is also the only university to have been voted England’s ‘Best Student Experience’ by the Times Higher Education student poll six years running.

The University is well-known for having strong links with industry. The School’s corporate clients include Rolls-Royce and Ferrari, and professional placement opportunities for students are with top companies such as Microsoft, GSK and Toyota.
