The Business School has a clear mission, focus and vision for the future, including global rankings amongst all other business schools. The following information briefly explains these.


We will conduct research of a high international standard that impacts theory and practice; deliver a high quality international learning experience at Postgraduate, Undergraduate, and Executive levels; and create an active forum that unites academics and practitioners in debate and knowledge exchange. To do so, we will focus on helping organisations to address the challenges they face, supporting this objective by researching and teaching across a full-range of business disciplines, dedicated research centres, and cross-cutting themes.


We aim to be one of the top 10% of UK business schools and in the top 50 globally, with a reputation for research and teaching that produces new knowledge and competent socially responsible graduates that help organisations address the cross-cutting challenges they face.
