Guided by our progressive public value strategy and principles, we are committed to delivering economic and social improvement through interdisciplinary teaching and research that tackles the grand challenges facing the world today.
As a global community of staff and students, representing multiple countries and nationalities, we offer a vibrant and collegiate environment. This enables and supports the delivery of transformative thinking and impactful research. Currently ranked sixth for research quality (out of 101 UK business schools), 86% of our output is classed as world-leading, while our research environment came joint first. We are also consistent, as one of only two business schools in the UK to rank in the top 10 in each government research exercise since 1992.
