Jon SibsonAn enthusiastic thumbs-up from students has been given to the Business School at the University of Greenwich, according to a major new national subject league table.

Marketing at Greenwich has been rated top in the country for student satisfaction in the Complete University Guide. Economics has been rated as joint top in the country, also for student satisfaction, alongside the University of Surrey.

The guide gives Marketing a score for student satisfaction of 4.4 out of a maximum of 5.0, the highest score across all universities in the country in this category. Economics scored 4.5 out of 5.0.

The scores measure students’ views of the teaching quality at their university and are based on the National Student Survey, which asks final-year undergraduates to rate the standard of their higher education in a number of important areas.

Jon Sibson, Pro Vice-Chancellor for the university’s Faculty of Business, says: "We are really pleased and proud to have been rated top in the country for student satisfaction in Economics and Marketing. This rating comes from the people in the best position to judge – our students.”

The Complete University Guide has been publishing league tables online since 2007, and is compiled by a team of national higher education experts. It uses national data to rank universities in nine areas including student satisfaction, research standards, student entry grades, staff-to-student ratios and graduate job prospects.

In the most recent Sunday Times University Guide league table, Greenwich also topped the national rankings for teaching excellence in Economics, as well as in Law.
