University of Warwick
Why choose Warwick Business School?
Warwick Business School has an excellent global reputation as a leader in business research and teaching. We were the first UK business school to gain the key accreditations from EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. Full re-accreditation in 2005, maintains our membership of a small and elite group of international business schools with this triple accolade.
One of only three business schools to gain the highest 5* rating for excellence in international research, we achieved this with the highest number of faculty submitted for assessment by a UK business school. 165 teaching and research faculty members provide both broad and in-depth subject coverage. As well as covering the full range of business subjects, we have 16 specialist research centres working with industry and the public sector. WBS is research-led and this focus allows us to feed the latest findings of world-leading academics directly into our teaching. Our strong links with industry ensure that our research and teaching are practically relevant.
Global business requires international research and knowledge transfer. Over one third of our faculty come from outside the UK or have worked abroad. Half of our 4,500 student population are citizens of over 100 different countries. This diversity presents a valuable opportunity for you to work with an international mix of students, sharing experiences and learning about different nationalities and cultures.
Our teaching also has a strong international focus - we research, consult, and train with international blue chip companies, providing global elements in course content and real life business case studies.

"Before I arrived at WBS, I expected there to be some sort of online system to integrate aspects of my degree together, but in no way did I expect the kind of extremely professional, practical, and comprehensive system that my.wbs provides. I've been very impressed with it from day one; it really reflects what students and faculty want and need and has contributed significantly to my degree."
