Graduate outcomes and rankings

As a recent graduate, we may contact you from time to time to ask you to take part in various surveys.

Graduate outcomes

Graduate Outcomes collects information on student activity after completing any higher education qualification in the UK, it is a snapshot taken approximately 12 - 15 months after leaving your course.

By taking part, you can impact the reputation of your programme and increase the value of your University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) degree. Find out more.


As an AACSB-accredited business school, ULMS takes part in a number of surveys each year by organisations such as The Financial Times.

The results of these surveys are used to rank business schools both internationally and nationally. As a graduate of a top-ranked School, your degree will be recognised as one of the best in the world.

By taking part in these surveys, you can help ensure the future success of our programmes and allow us to attract the best and brightest students, researchers and corporate partners, and secure our place amongst the top business schools worldwide.

Each ranking requires the assistance of a particular cohort to fill in a very short survey about their experiences. Cohorts include:

  • Financial Times rankings survey graduates (campus MBA, campus MSc Finance, campus MSc Management and online MBA) from three years prior to the year of the survey
  • Sports Business rankings survey graduates (Football Industries MBA and MSc Sports Business & Management) from three years prior to the year of the survey
  • The School also conducts a careers survey for the most recent graduating class of each ranked programme using 12Twenty.

Without the assistance of our alumni, we will not be eligible to take part in the process, so please do help us by making sure your details are up-to-date and fill in the surveys when you see them.
