The University of Edinburgh Business School enjoys a long tradition of teaching and research, opening the doors to our first cohort of students in October 1919. The School offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and executive education programmes in business and management and provides a platform for research, discussion, and debate on a wide range of business issues.

From campaigning for gender equality in the workplace to pioneering internet privacy, our students have gone onto shape business and culture around the world for over a century. Business School students have been writing the future since 1919, we're asking current students what's next? What can be achieved over the next 100 years?
