The School is a faculty of the University of Leeds, one of the leading higher education institutions in the UK, ranked in the Top 100 universities in the world (QS rankings 2014) and a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive UK universities. Leeds University Business School is proud to be a top ten research-intensive institution, recognised by the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 which placed Leeds among an elite group of UK universities. The Business School ranked highly on the volume and impact of our research, alongside the quality of our academic environment. The School was placed in the top ten for "research power" measuring volume and quality.
