Our mission and vision

Research-led. Student-focused.


Our mission is to pursue research at the highest international level creating impactful outputs so as to guarantee the excellence of our programmes and our engagement with students, partners, clients and stakeholders.


Our vision for the period 2010-2015 is to grow in a sustainable way and continue to be a leading global business school as measured by:

  • the quality of our intellectual contributions, programmes, partnerships and knowledge exchange
  • the global reputation of our staff, students and alumni
  • our national and international standings and rankings

We will combine excellence in teaching with skills development that will enable our graduates to flourish in their chosen careers. We will achieve our vision through growth in student numbers at the Lancaster campus and at our overseas partner institutions. We will continue to develop our e-learning strategy so as to extend our market reach and to support our students at home and overseas.
