Kent Business School


Recommended Posts

Kent Business School is a leading business school, ranked in the top 20 in the UK. Engaging teaching, world-class research, professional partnerships, and an international community create an exciting atmosphere in which to learn, where innovation is encouraged and challenges welcomed.

We aspire to be a center of internationally excellent and world-leading research and a place of transformational learning. We are a research-led school that puts its students first, engages with the professions, and plays a proactive role in the region. We envisage KBS as an international school that attracts global talent and develops partnerships with leading international business schools.

We want to grow in size and caliber by extending our reach and by adding stakeholder value. Our strengths, which set us apart from competitors, are in employability and student experience. We also have the potential to offer a unique experience capitalizing on our location at the heart of Europe, linking up the UK's economic heartland and the world's financial hub to Europe's political and cultural centers.

We are a research-intensive business school that produces rigorous and relevant knowledge that informs and impacts management's practice. Acting as an intellectual hub, we aim to develop innovative and sustainable approaches to management that address organizational and societal challenges. We are committed to developing employable, ethical, and responsible graduates and managers and leaders who will make a difference.

You learn from teachers who are experts in their field, many of whom draw on their own practical experience in their teaching. Most are active researchers and enjoy sharing their knowledge and discoveries with you. Our teaching methods are varied. You take part in workshops, individual and team presentations, and use case studies to apply the theory to actual companies. Alongside your academic study, you can see if you have what it takes to start your own business at ASPIRE or take part in Pitch it! – a chance to work as part of a team to solve a business challenge.

Kent Business School has an international reputation for the quality of its research. Our research addresses many of the main challenges facing the global business community. We work with leading companies and institutions, including Parker Steel, Priority Freight, Port of Dover, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). Our staff frequently publish in leading international journals and write text-books used by undergraduate and postgraduate students.

We are proud of our graduates' success, and to ensure this continues, we offer targeted support to our students. We have an experienced employability team that has developed a program of seminars on employability, workshops, and opportunities to meet with employers and gain work experience.

We can help you develop your great idea into a real business proposition and advise you on setting up your own business. We also run Dragon's Den-style events to give you the experience of pitching your ideas in a realistic environment. Our links with business locally, nationally, and internationally provide an excellent year in industry opportunities. We also hold events within the School where you can meet potential employers. Whatever your aspirations, our dedicated team of specialist staff is here to offer you support and advice on career options and ways to improve your employability.

A kitemark of our global distinction and rigorous academic teaching is reflected in our accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and our membership of the Chartered Association of Business Schools, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AASCB), the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).
