You may have heard of Cranfield University before, but if you haven’t, here’s a run-down. With its main campus half an hour outside Milton Keynes, Cranfield is one of the UK’s leading postgraduate universities.
Because it’s exclusively postgraduate, it doesn’t feature in the usual educational rankings – but the Cranfield School of Management is rated consistently highly in the Financial Times, Bloomberg, the Economist, and Poets and Quants league tables. You can find out more about that here.
