The School of Business and Management was established in 2002 with a staff of five, and has quickly made a name for itself as a cutting-edge research department. The School now employs more than 30 academic staff, and expects to grow more in the near future. Situated between the two financial centres of the City of London and Canary Wharf, the School is in a prime position for students who aspire to a career in business management.
All of our programmes focus on developing your ability to make relevant critical analyses and evaluations. Within the School, this is achieved through the investigation of modern business issues and management techniques. Our major research focuses include Equality and Diversity, and Globalisation. The School contributes to many joint programmes, covering the essentials of business and management across a wide variety of disciplines.
We encourage applications from graduates from diverse fields, who seek to gain business management knowledge. Graduates with first and higher degree qualifications in Business Management have excellent job prospects in industry, finance and commerce as well as in the public sector and charities. We have excellent links with the corporate world, which we use both as a source of advice and as an occasional special input into our teaching.
