Brunel among top 10 universities for producing business leaders


The university has been named among the best in the UK for creating CEOs and filling top management positions.

The list, put together by salary benchmarking site Emolument, analysed 26,000 graduates from across the country to give an indication of which institutions are most successful in helping them rise to the top in their chosen career.

Brunel University London came in 10th, producing 2.2 per cent of senior management professionals in the UK, according to the data.

The report suggests that graduates from Brunel are likely to have the entrepreneurial spirit to launch their own businesses or join budding start-ups, climbing through the ranks and reaching positions of power more quickly than if they had joined a larger company.

Other universities to feature in the top 10 include the London Business School, Cambridge, Strathclyde and Sheffield.
