The 2010 Management Today Awards have been published and Ultra Electronics has again performed strongly, being ranked number two in the most admired company in the aerospace and defence category.

  • Value as long-term investment
  • Quality of management

Now in its 18th year, the MT’s ‘Britain’s Most Admired Companies’ awards offer a unique insight into the real factors behind corporate reputation. Winners are identified by peer review; Britain’s top companies and their bosses are asked to assess their rivals, a revealing exercise that really gets to the heart of what makes businesses succeed. Britain’s Most Admired Companies awards celebrate that vital ingredient – what it takes to be admired by your closest rivals.

Britain’s Most Admired Companies is a survey created and conducted by Professor Mike Brown of Birmingham City Business School. The results are officially and exclusively published by Management Today, with this year’s ranking appearing in the December 2010 issue of MT.
