Partnership lies at the heart of the School. We work collaboratively with students, academic peers, alumni and, of course, the business community.
For many business partners, we offer unrivalled opportunities to recruit talented students and find innovative business solutions, perhaps through projects or executive education programmes. Yet more businesses and organisations work with the School to nurture ideas, debate and research that will shape and inform the world of tomorrow.
Collaboration is a key to many of our degree programmes too. We regularly work with like-minded business schools and academic institutions from around the world, creating programmes that both respond to and anticipate business need.
The University of Edinburgh's unique collaboration with the industry is a very worthy winner, particularly given the importance to Scotland’s continuing competitiveness as a financial centre of ensuring that financial services companies have access to the very best skilled practitioners.Amanda Harvie, former Chief Executive of Scottish Financial Enterprise
Similarly, our research is often undertaken in partnership with academic experts, businesses, organisations and government bodies, both here in the UK and internationally. We harness the collective expertise and experience of those within the School and beyond, the benefits of which will also be felt far beyond the lecture theatre, the meeting room or the debating chamber.
