York Business School in London

As an innovative Business School in the heart of London, we work closely with the business communities we serve in the private, public and third sectors; locally, nationally and increasingly on an international basis. Our business engagement strategy is designed to provide events, learning interventions and consultancy, knowledge transfer and applied research within and for your organisation that is predicated on transformational management and leadership development for challenging times.

Our new campus is a home for business learning that will take you to the very heart of current business thinking; a place that will introduce you to the latest developments in business innovation, development and growth.


York St John University’s London campus is located in Glasshouse Yard, just 100 metres from Barbican tube station.

The city-centre location has excellent transport links to the underground, over ground and London bus routes.

Our striking three-story campus building is just off Aldersgate Street and moments away from the bars and restaurants of Clerkenwell Road.

Home to the brutalist architecture of the Barbican Centre, the historic heart of Barbican is a hub for inspirational urban pioneers and contemporary culture.

Whether you’re joining tourists at the nearby Museum of London or catching up over coffee in the bars of Shoreditch, you’ll never be bored in Barbican.
