Oxford Brookes University LogoOxford Brookes University Business School

Oxford Brookes Business School is a place of inspiration and transformation. Our students embark on a supported journey of learning and self-development to become highly effective practitioners and responsible leaders operating in global markets.

They achieve this because they can gain extensive experience working with companies such as Intel, BMW, Four Seasons and Aldi. Our leading researchers work regularly with our students to ensure that, as well as being practice-based, their education and development is research informed.

They enjoy a campus environment focused on sustainability and collegiality in one of the world’s most renowned cities of learning. The Business School continues to support and reports on its commitment to the tenets which underpin the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).

This is a Business School with a focus on personal growth and career fulfilment. Our graduates make a difference in the world and, as Dean, it is a privilege to play a part in their journey.
