Northumbria University Business School
Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK.
Having recently been awarded Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB international) double accreditation in business and accounting, we are part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools worldwide. The School is also accredited by EPAS for 18 undergraduate programmes – more than any business school in the UK.
Our size, infrastructure and resources enable us to offer an unprecedented range of research-informed programmes which are designed to deliver the relevant, cutting edge skills that are essential for the business leaders of today and to prepare tomorrow’s leaders for a successful future. We offer programmes at every level of business education – undergraduate, postgraduate, post experience and doctoral. We are also at the forefront of technology-enhanced learning to improve the student experience.
As a professional and international School, Newcastle Business School develops individuals to achieve leadership, management and career potential through research-rich, business relevant and academic excellent education. Programmes are developed and delivered by research-engaged academics and highly experienced business practitioners.
Employability of our students is very important to us, as demonstrated by our rank of eleventh out of 103 for graduate level employability in The Times University Guide 2013. This is also enhanced through a strong focus on experiential learning and clinic-based education where students develop relationships with real businesses and gain direct experience in problem solving. We continue to develop this approach through pioneering programmes such as our Entrepreneurial Business Management Degree, where students run their own enterprises. Additionally, our Student Engagement Centre helps and actively encourages students to take up work placement, overseas study and volunteering opportunities.
Newcastle Business School engages actively with the local community and makes a meaningful contribution to the regional economy. Through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships we provide academic and professional expertise to help organisations improve profitability and efficiency. Our Corporate Executive Development Centre also works with more than 700 business leaders and managers offering learning experiences that enable significant and sustainable change.
