Ground breaking PhD research on middle-ranked business school student attractiveness

Top, rather than middle-ranking, business schools tend to be the focus of academic research. However, a seminal study by Rudaina Mahmoud (Brunel PhD marketing scholar) revealed the attractiveness dimensions valued by international postgraduate students within a prominent middle-ranking metropolitan, business school. Key factors valued by the students included not only a business school’s research profile and teaching, but also the country/city and physical campus.
