UK has been the home of education for quite a long period of time with it abundance of notable noble prize winners, and also for being the pioneer in initiating the industrial revolution.
The contributions have been in the field of science: however, in the contemporary context, international students prefer business related programs. 27% of international students were seeking a degree related to business in 2020, to be precise 126,955 students.
In this short article, we will be discussing some of the best business schools to study in the UK, where comparisons will be drawn in terms of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) ranking, UK rankings, tuition fees and the cost of living.
University of Law Business School

London Business School
The London Business School is ranked amongst some of the best for MSc, MBA and EMBA programs. Although being quite young in the list (established in 1964), it is ranked 5th in QS Global EMBA Rankings in 2020.
LSE – London School of Economics and Political Science

However, such quality comes at some price with international students paying above £19,000 per year. The cost of living of London does not help here, either.
