University of Bradford School of Management

The University of Bradford School of Management has played a central role in providing world-class research and highly-ranked innovative business and management education since 1963.

Now one of an elite group of less than 1% of the world’s business schools with the “Triple Crown” of accreditations, we are an outward-looking, relevant, modern, student oriented business school where academics, practitioners and researchers work together to develop and deliver our core mission of Making Knowledge Work.


We seek to achieve our mission through a focus on three key aspects:

  • Internationally: by providing a truly international experience for our Global Campus of students and staff
  • Responsibly: through our focus on informing responsible, ethical and sustainable management for future generations
  • Innovatively: by providing students with a stimulating experience and the ability to innovate and engage in enterprise

Our Programmes

The School offers a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes delivered both in Bradford and at partner institutions across the world. We have approximately 1,000 undergraduate students, 500 postgraduate and 100 doctoral students studying with us in Bradford at any one time, and a further 4,000 studying Bradford degrees at our partner Institutions in France, Spain, Poland, Philippines, Singapore, India, Oman and Dubai.

International Perspective

Our students and staff are truly international. More than a third of our academic staff are from outside Britain or have non-UK qualifications. In addition, over 70 nations are represented among the students at our Bradford campus.

Our international faculty and students bring diverse perspectives on current business and management issues and help to create a stimulating atmosphere for teaching, learning and research.

International exchange is encouraged, both of Bradford students choosing to study abroad and students from partner institutions taking a semester in Bradford. We have a wide range of partners with over 24 institutions across the world for such exchanges.
