After beating out tough competition from ESSEC Business School and The International University of Monaco, the QS Return on Investment Report has rated Kingston Business School number one in the world for MBA graduate start-ups.

The report looked at business schools in over 30 countries, and analysed the proportion of students that go on to create their own companies. Carried out by business intelligence agency Quacquarelli Symonds, the report found that 33% of Kingston's MBA graduates go on to set up their own businesses.

Professor Ron Tuninga, Dean of Kingston Business School, has said of the win: "Entrepreneurship is in our DNA. We aim to instil an entrepreneurial mind-set in all students from when they come in the door as first year undergraduates right up to the day they achieve their degrees and diplomas." He then went on to say, "In the current climate it is imperative that our students realise they don't have to limit themselves to be job-seekers and that with some innovation, they can be their own job creators."
