We make a difference

Many staff actually work in their areas of expertise and bring modern practices into the School. Ensuring you are always at the forefront of current thought, debates and beliefs within business. Pioneers in preparing students to tackle tough business challenges, we believe in making a difference, and we put our principles into practice. For example, a 54-hour hackathon event called ‘Sync the City’ in 2014 challenged Norwich’s elite entrepreneurs to fit months of ideas, energy and innovation into just three days.  The winners were ‘Team Ever Care’, a group of tech specialists, business professionals and students spearheaded by a Norwich Business School student, Emma Pierce.
