Research Excellence Framework 2014
In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF), 84% of our research was assessed as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent'. 41% of our submissions met the 4* standard (the highest possible).
According to the Times Higher Education's REF rankings, we placed 8th in the UK for business and management studies.
We are accredited by EQUIS, the European Foundation for Management Development's quality inspectorate.
EQUIS is the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration.
We've received an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. The Athena SWAN Charter recognises the work of a university department to address and improve gender equality.
The Principles of Responsible Management Education initiative recognise us for our commitment to sustainability.
Our teaching and research promote sustainability in many ways, including specialised units across courses.
