We have forged strong relationships with many global businesses such as KPMG and Accenture. These all-important links enable us to provide real boardroom expertise and practical business projects. You will have the opportunity to work on intensive consultancy projects – with companies such as Santander, Vodafone and Tata Consulting.
Our diverse and international student community, means you can benefit from our global perspective from the outset. You’ll also grow through exploring key issues of leadership, effective communication, change management and cross-cultural awareness. This might involve working with Chinese SMEs to address the problems and opportunities of their burgeoning economy or helping Sri Lankan textile manufacturers introduce sustainable processes.
We are proud to hold triple accreditation, from AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), AMBA (Association of MBAs) and EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System).
