We are proud to be ranked 8th in the UK for business and economics and 61st in the world in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021

How you'll learn

Your teaching will be delivered through a combination of:

  • Group work (e.g. discussion groups)
  • Lectures
  • Online learning
  • Seminars
  • Tutorials.

Outside of these, you’ll be expected to carry out independent study, including coursework, essays, and reading.

We’ve also introduced hybrid learning, a mix of online and face-to-face sessions, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The lecturers offered a great balance of personal industry experience and academic theory that showcased how the theory can be put into practice, or how to learn from mistakes! The course and our programme director were incredibly engaging and there were often events outside of class that meant meeting and networking with industry professionals, who are experiencing what we studied, and work the way I hope to after the programme.”
