Kent Business School
Kent Business School
Kent Business School (KBS) is a leading Business School, ranked in the top 30 in the UK and
is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AASCB) which
places KBS within the top institutions globally for business degrees, with only 5% of the world’s
Business Schools attaining this accreditation.
Engaging teaching, world-class research, professional partnerships and an international
community create an exciting atmosphere in which to learn, where innovation is encouraged
and challenges welcomed. We are a research-intensive business school that produces
rigorous and relevant knowledge which informs and impacts on the practice of management.
Acting as an intellectual hub, we aim to develop innovative and sustainable approaches to
management that address organisational and societal challenges. We are committed to
developing employable, ethical and responsible graduates as well as managers and leaders
who will make a difference. The appointment of new and highly motivated staff has
transformed the research culture within the School, attracting interest nationally and
KBS is the largest school within the University and the Faculty of Social Sciences. The School
has 2388 students and 137 staff. We offer a strong and growing portfolio of undergraduate,
postgraduate taught and research programmes on our two campuses in Canterbury and
Medway. The School also delivers part of its MBA programme in Brussels and Paris.
We are investing in our programmes, staff, and facilities. In Canterbury, KBS moved into their
new home ‘Sibson’ in early 2017. The state-of-the-art building with new teaching and learning
rooms and modern social and breakout areas, encapsulate KBS academic values and identity.
In Medway, KBS re-located to the Historic Dockyard, occupying the ‘Sail and Colour Loft’.
Here, modern learning facilities feature within an iconic historic building forming inspiring
learning spaces. Further expansion of these facilities is due to be completed in 2019 providing
further space for both students and staff
