Staffordshire Business School

The Business School has over 40 academics and operates a number of partnerships across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The School offers awards from Foundation year HNC to PhD and DBA and is constantly expanding its range to make sure it stays at the cutting edge of curriculum development. 

Our courses include Business Management, Finance and Accounting, Human Resource Management, Tourism and Events, and from Sept 2018 eSports .

The Business School at Staffordshire University has received the Small Business Charter award in recognition of its work in supporting small businesses, start-ups and their local economy.

Research informs our teaching and is delivered with a wide range of national and international partners. The School has a long record of accomplishment in securing EU funding for both research and teaching. It also takes part in the ERASMUS scheme to facilitate this work.

Our main areas of research are within the following broad areas: leadership and change; innovation, entrepreneurship, competitiveness and SME development; corporate governance and corporate social responsibility (CSR); the digital economy. At any one time we have circa 25 PhD and DBA students many of whom are based abroad.

In the 2014 REF exercise, 45% of the research was ranked as 3 and 4*.

Digital skills are very important as there is a university wide strategy to be a Connected University and digital is at the heart of this strategy. The Business School makes extensive use of social media for teaching, research, engaging with students and the broader community. The twitter account for the School (@BusinessStaffs) has recently won the Edurank Best Twitter performance for Business Schools across the world for the second year running.

The Dean of the School is June Dennis and the rest of the management team are Prof Vish Maheshwari, Prof Jess Power, Prof Jon Fairburn and Rachel Gowers.

To keep up with all the teaching, research, partnership and public engagement that we do have a look at our media channels below.
