Our academics are thought leaders, thanks to their research and real-world practitioner experience. This translates into an inspirational learning experience for the next generation of business leaders and game-changing organisations.

For over 50 years, we have been helping individuals and organisations learn and succeed by transforming knowledge into action. We are proud to embed responsible management thinking into every part of our teaching and research, which in turn influences inspiring business leaders and clients to make a real impact on their organisations.

We are entrepreneurial by nature, as part of one of Europe’s largest academic centres for applied research. A hothouse of business activity, our world-class faculty and doctoral researchers work alongside cutting-edge industry leaders, via our vibrant networks of enthusiastic alumni, research collaborations and clubs.

Our research is recognised as ‘world-leading’ by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). They particularly rate our engagement with industry and commerce and our research income, which is recognised, and funded, by organisations across the world.

Our academics regularly lend their voices as commentators on the global news agenda, reinforcing their expertise on matters affecting business and society.
