Business School Rankings Alumni Survey Information 2018


Thank you for distributing the Survey on behalf of Times Higher Education.
We appreciate some business schools do not have permission from all their alumni to share contact details allowing THE to distribute the survey fully. Having discussed with our auditors THE has decided to allow business schools to distribute the survey to their alumni directly. Business schools will be required to provide written confirmation of distribution to all alumni who have consented to be contacted by the business school. THE reserves the right to audit any business school distributing the survey and business schools are required to keep a record of all contact with alumni in relation to the survey.

At the bottom of the page you will find the required confirmation form, and a downloadable copy of these instructions for your use.
