Making business better – together

Engaging with business and developing partnerships is at the heart of the vision of Surrey Business School. Using a hands-on approach, we reach out and collaborate with different industries to create new and innovative ways of improving business practice, with pioneering research with real-world application.

As well as working closely with a broad spectrum of businesses, agencies, government bodies and charities, the School also has a number of more formal partnerships with organisations. Our partners benefit from knowledge exchange, support for their strategic aims, and access to world-class research and excellent graduates.

We hosted our inaugural ‘Partners Evening’ last month, with a diverse range of businesses and a number of SBS alumni. They discussed many of the key issues in the current business environment and how becoming an SBS partner business provides competitive advantage.

Future partners’ events will consider how businesses benefit from being involved in teaching and learning and how to access SBS research. If you or your company would like to attend future partnership events or find out more, please contact Adrian Shanks at
