A Global Approach to Business: We are the country's first Business School, established in 1902. Internationalism was vitally important to us from the start, with students from countries such as Peru, Russia, India, Japan and Poland choosing to study here from the very beginning. We still believe that the global nature of business makes it essential that our students and academics understand business from different international perspectives.
Our Mission is to make an exceptional impact on business and society globally through leadership in research and teaching. We employ over 130 lecturing and research staff – many internationally recognised authorities.
Our Advisory Board is chaired by Lord Digby Jones of Birmingham. Its purpose is to advise on our strategic objectives and their attainment, and seek to enhance the Business School's links with the corporate world.
