About Brighton Business School

At Brighton we cultivate entrepreneurial thinkers. Based on the beautiful British coast, within one hour of London and 30 minutes from London Gatwick International Airport, we are a professional business school offering internationally recognised undergraduate, postgraduate and executive courses across a wide range of business subjects.

Through our strong relationships with professional bodies and organisations from across the world we deliver career-focused courses that allow students the opportunity to practically apply their knowledge.

We are also proud to be one of the UK’s top five universities for the impact of our research into business and management (REF, 2014), influencing policy and making a difference to society.

I was inspired by an intellectual and international environment. The course helped students to succeed in teamwork and develop further our skills and knowledge. Achieving the Masters degree from the University of Brighton was crucial for me to get hired for a competitive future leadership programme at an
international Dutch corporation.

The course increased my knowledge of how public services are managed. My learning was not limited to the classroom. I also learned from the course experiences, visiting companies and talking to practicing managers. The tutor-led study visits to companies were particularly useful experiences.
