Why study with us?
The programme is taught within the School of Business and Management. We are a relatively new School, rapidly building a strong reputation for our distinctive approach, in particular our focus on the inter-disciplinary nature of business and management. For example, our undergraduate degree programme stimulates debate around the philosophical and sociological issues associated with management, locating it within a practical and problem-solving framework. This encourages the development of genuinely original thinking in our graduates.
The School entered the Government's Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) for the first time in 2008 with outstanding success, ranking joint 25th out of 90 Business Schools. This result is the highest ever recorded for a first-time entry.
