Cardiff Met was also recently ranked as the top University in the UK for four years running for the quality of its international student experience by the International Student Barometer (ISB). The MBA is delivered by the Cardiff School of Management, one of Cardiff Met’s five academic schools and with approximately 1000 students, the course is one of the largest in Europe. It is an internationally recognized and respected qualification attracting students from the public and private sectors in the UK and Overseas. Cardiff Metropolitan University roots date back to the mid-1800s, a history of which is very proud. It all started off in 1865 when the School of Art opened in the Old Free Library Building, St.Mary’s Street, Cardiff. In 1990 the institute changed its name to Cardiff Institute of Higher Education and in 1996 the Institute became a college of the University of Wales and its name was changed to the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC).By 2004 UWIC’s status within the University of Wales was raised from University College to Constituent Institution, the highest level of membership. In 2011 UWIC adopted the new name Cardiff Metropolitan University, signaling nationally and internationally our departure from the University of Wales. Having a name which features the city more prominently will significantly help maintain the profile of Cardiff as a Capital City of Learning. At Cardiff Metropolitan University there is a continuous effort to maintain and raise the standards for all who study here. In 2007, under the former name, UWIC became the first UK University to be awarded the Government’s Charter Mark for Excellence for the fifth time.
