The University of Leicester School of Management is increasingly recognised as one of the top management schools in the United Kingdom, with an excellent international reputation for the development and teaching of highly stimulating business administration and management courses that are highly relevant to your career needs. It certainly boasts all the credentials you might expect from a recent recipient of The Times Higher University of the Year Award.
Founded in 1989, the School of Management has grown to become one of the largest providers of distance learning management courses in the UK, alongside offering a large portfolio of on-campus programmes both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. We are a member of the Association of Business Schools (ABS) and our MBA is AMBA accredited.
The School of Management is a vibrant department consisting of a community of scholars with an international reputation. The enthusiasm you will find in lecture theatres and seminar rooms comes from our commitment to our subject and our attempts to develop and energise it.
Known for the ‘Leicester Model’ of management studies, the school takes an multi-disciplinary approach to the study of management and organisations, drawing from across the social sciences and until most mainstream western business schools, the concern is as much with challenging the status quo rather than perpetuating it. Our goal is to equip you with a range of theories, techniques and concepts. However, whereas most business schools stop there, we go further : we guide you as you unpick these concepts, challenge them and question their relevance to contemporary society for we believe that management is too important not to debate.
