Ensuring the quality of our teaching and research is an important consideration both for the Business School and the University of Edinburgh as a whole.

The School complies with the quality guidelines of the broader University, and publishes extensive guidance for staff on our intranet about how to ensure quality. On this page we have included information of general interest and we have also included links to other resources related to quality assurance and enhancement and student support.
