THE BEST OF AACSB ACCREDITED UNIVERSITIES 2015
Newcastle Business School at Northumbria University
Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK. Based in the North-East of England, Newcastle Business School is in an elite group of the top 1% of business schools worldwide, following a double accreditation in Business and Accounting from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This rare double also means Newcastle Business School is the only business school in Europe to have achieved this accolade. It is also just one of 10 institutions outside of the USA to do so. In addition to AACSB, 18 of the School’s undergraduate programmes are accredited by EPAS – more than any business school in the UK.
The Business School’s iconic £70 million campus in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne offers an outstanding learning experience for students, from all over the world. Our size, infrastructure and resources enable us to offer an unprecedented range of research-informed programmes which are designed to deliver the relevant, cutting edge skills that are essential for the business leaders of today and to prepare tomorrow's leaders for a successful future. We offer programmes at every level of business education - undergraduate, postgraduate, post experience and doctoral.
As a professional and international School, Newcastle Business School develops individuals to achieve leadership, management and career potential through research-rich, business relevant and academic excellent education. Programmes are developed and delivered by research-engaged academics and highly experienced business practitioners.
Newcastle Business School also benefits from being part of Northumbria University, one of the largest universities in the UK and with a growing international reputation for research-informed teaching, a strong business focus and academic excellence. Northumbria has been recognised by Times Higher Education as one of the leading universities for the provision of business and management education.
Success has continued this year with the School becoming the first university business school in the North East of England to be awarded The Small Business Charter in recognition of its active participation in supporting start-ups, students and small businesses. The Small Business Charter aims to bring business schools, businesses and entrepreneurs together to ensure small businesses are supported to drive local economic growth. University business schools holding Small Business Charter awards have already directly helped over 8,000 small businesses – providing a range of support including on-site incubators with dedicated space for students and small businesses to start- up and grow.
Central to Newcastle Business School’s approach is its focus on experiential learning – learning by doing – to enhance employability and career prospects for its students. Through its Entrepreneurial Business Management (EBM) course, for example, it has helped pioneer new ways of practice-based learning and engaging with real customers and clients.
Also linked to employability is a commitment to offering each and every student an opportunity to either take a one year work placement in industry, study overseas or take part in extra-curricular activities like volunteering. There is clear and mounting evidence that as well as enhancing the student learning experience, this also promotes greater employability chances in an increasingly international jobs’ market. For placements, the Student Engagement Centre can help secure positions of responsibility with competitive salaries – and it is always happy to help. Overseas study opportunities are also growing all the time with partner institutions across the world.
Finally, it is worth noting that Newcastle Business School is part of Northumbria’s Business and Law Faculty and therefore works closely with Northumbria Law School. At the end of 2013 Northumbria was awarded the highly prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for the outstanding community work of its Student Law Office. Under supervision, the year 4 students provide free legal services for the community and have secured more than £1 million on behalf of their clients since 2008. It seems success and having the opportunity to make a real difference while learning runs deep at Newcastle.
