Leeds University Business School


Recommended Posts

We are a leading, full-service business school, regularly world ranked by the Financial Times and The Economist, and one of a small number of schools worldwide to be triple-accredited by AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS. We deliver undergraduate, masters, MBA, Ph.D., executive education, and online study to over 3000 students from around 100 countries. According to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) and one of a small, elite group, we are a top ten business and management research institution to appear in the top ten across multiple categories of research.
The School is a faculty of the University of Leeds, one of the leading higher education institutions in the UK, ranked in the top 100 universities globally (QS rankings 2019) and a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive UK universities. Our Mission is to globally make an extraordinary impact on business and society through leadership in research and teaching.
To produce and disseminate the research of world-class quality, within the School and through international partnerships, which increases knowledge, skills, understanding, and impact. To enable individuals to develop their academic potential, employability, global and cultural insight, and ethical awareness to enhance their potential to benefit business and society. The Business School shares the University of Leeds' values of professionalism, inclusiveness, integrity, and community.
Our values of professionalism, inclusiveness, integrity, community, and academic excellence are at the heart of everything we do. We understand that what we do can impact the broader community, which is why we take our social, economic, and environmental responsibilities seriously. We strive to ensure that everyone within the University is treated fairly, with dignity and respect that the opportunities we provide are open to all and that the University provides a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment.
As an international research-led University, Leeds strives to go beyond our legal duties to create a positive environment for our diverse community of staff and students. The University works hard to promote gender equality and support the career development of talented women working in the traditionally male-dominated fields of science, engineering, and technology. The University renewed its Athena SWAN Bronze award in October 2016. Leeds is committed to recruiting the brightest and best students, regardless of background. Our Reach for Excellence and Access to Leeds (A2L) programs are critical parts of our Access Agreement and Education Engagement Strategy. We have also developed an access strategy to recognize the needs of potential mature students.
We are proud to be a Fairtrade university and have been since 2005. Along with Leeds University Union, we sell fairtrade foods in all shops and food outlets on campus, and we are passionate about raising awareness of Fairtrade. The Fairtrade label guarantees a better deal for disadvantaged producers in the developing world. The University of Leeds carries out research using animals to improve the health and welfare of human beings and animals, to provide a better understanding of the animals themselves, and for educational purposes. It uses animals only when there are no alternatives, and is firmly committed to the replacement, reduction, and refinement of the use of animals in research (the 'three Rs'). Our modern slavery statement informs our students, staff, suppliers, stakeholders, and the public about the steps that we have taken. It will take to mitigate any risk of modern slavery, human trafficking, forced and bonded labor, and labor rights violations within our organization and supply chains.
