[[Excellence in teaching]]
We have been running business courses for 40 years, so we have the experience to ensure you get the most out of your time at Brighton.
Relationships between tutors and students are professional and supportive. Class sizes are small enough for there to be a personal and friendly atmosphere where staff know students by name and can support their progress.
Studying at postgraduate level involves a number of new challenges, the most obvious being the independent nature of the course and the increased expectations in terms of being critical and being original. To support you with the transition to postgraduate level study you will be allocated a supervisor who is an expert in research who has been appointed to guide and support you through the process of writing your dissertation.
[[Tutors with practical experience]]
Most of our lecturers have experience of working in business and many continue to work as consultants with leading businesses and organisations. This enables them to provide business insights based on practical experience. Companies that our tutors have worked for include 3M, American Express, Bank of America, Exxon-Mobil, Fujitsu, Home Office, ICI, Jaguar, JP Morgan Chase, Kraft, MOD, NHS, Price Waterhouse, Royal Bank of Canada and TNS Market Research.
There is always something interesting happening in Brighton. Situated on the south coast of England, the city is bright, upbeat and unconventional. It is no wonder that many Brighton graduates choose to stay here.
