Surrey Business School is a hub of world-class research and dynamic industry-led learning. But it’s our people who make us.
Our academics are extremely passionate about their subject, and it shows in all their achievements. In 2018 alone, they won a research grant to investigate the effects of promotions on employees; presented at the first ever Hubris Forum in Seoul, South Korea; were interviewed by The Economist Intelligence Unit; announced a new Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP); worked with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award charity to deliver impact leadership training; and won an outstanding doctoral research award. Alongside all this excellence, our academics dedicate themselves to supporting both undergraduate and postgraduate studies throughout their studies, research and extracurricular activities.
We always encourage our students to be enterprising and innovative – key skills for the world of business. Our Student Enterprise programme gives our students experience running their own business and helps them develop essential skills for their future careers.
Our undergraduate students also benefit from our close links with national and international businesses of all sizes and across all sectors through our renowned Professional Training placement programme. Such as Daniel Littman who completed his placement at Hilton Hotels, Emily Jeffreys who did hers at Electronic Arts, or Gareth Wardhaugh who worked at IBM.
At Surrey Business School we are dedicated to improving business practice through research. Our aim is to transform lives, organisations, and society on a global scale. We are home to three renowned research centres that are transforming the world of business, including the Centre of Digital Economy (CoDE) and the Centre for Management Learning.
