Webster Graduate School

The Webster Graduate School runs an American MBA program in London offered since 1986 [http://www.webster.ac.uk/courses/why_study_at_webster.aspx] . It is currently based in Regent's College campus in Regent's Park. As well as full-time and part-time MBA courses, the school offers a taught Masters portfolio inc. Marketing, Finance, International Relations, HR, Management & Leadership.

The Regent's College campus was built in 1913 and opened that year by Queen Mary. The campus was part of Bedford College, the University of London until 1985. Bedford College merged with Royal Holloway and vacated the premises. Regent's College and their associated parties; including Webster, are not and have never been afilliated with the University of London.

Admissions

Under 100 students are enrolled at any one time with the greatest proportion (usually 40) enrolled in the MBA program.

Academic Prestige

In its student guidelines, the school advises a B- grade or better. Failing to reach this standard will result in the student being dismissed. [http://www.webster.ac.uk/pdf/studentguide/WGSStudentHandbookJuly2006.pdf]

Students of the MA International Relations automatically receive membership of the Royal Instititute for International Affairs, Chatham House. This is an entitlement to Webster students, although undergraduate and graduate students of all universities in London are eligible for membership of Chatham House and will pay the under 35 Membership Fee.
