We have an enviable reputation in the teaching of business programmes where our mission is to develop responsible business leaders.

We are a forward-thinking business school committed to providing a distinctive and relevant education for our undergraduate and postgraduate business students.

In the independently administered National Student Survey we rank consistently highly for overall satisfaction. We believe this reflects the care and support we offer students and the vibrancy of our programmes.

Courses are led by a diverse and inspired team of educators and researchers whose international experience, different backgrounds and rich research skills make for a thorough and rewarding student experience.

Studying business at Winchester encourages positive and critical attitudes towards change and enterprise, reflecting the dynamism of the business environment. Our undergraduate and postgraduate business courses are an excellent preparation for starting and developing a career in business and management in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. They also allow the enhancement of lifelong learning skills and personal development enabling you to contribute to the organisation where you work and to society at large.

Many of our degrees have a period of employment built into the structure of the programme and this is regarded as an integral part of your learning. It’s an opportunity for you to apply your knowledge and skills in an industrial setting while experiencing the atmosphere and pace of the work place. This will ultimately help you to develop confidence and define your future career goals.

The University of Winchester Business School is a full member of the Association of Business Schools and is one of only 30 Business Schools in the world to be Champions for the United Nations initiative: The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), which includes over 300 business schools worldwide. The PRME is inspired by internationally accepted values that seek to establish a process of continuous improvement among institutions of management education in order to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century. The UN initiative fits well alongside the mission and values of the University.

We have an excellent track record of education, employability and enrichment in partnership with the business community. Find out more about our collaborative partnerships.
