Brighton Business School is part of the University of Brighton. We teach, research and consult on accounting, economics, finance, business, human resources, management, marketing and law.
We offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, including MBAs, part-time courses for professionals, and tailor-made programmes for commercial organisations.
Giving students real-world business experience
At Brighton Business School we work closely with local, national and international businesses both to develop our courses, and to provide our students with work placements to improve their employability.
Our teaching approach is vocationally orientated: we cover the theory in depth and then apply it to real-world issues through case studies and employer-based projects.

- Association of Chartered Certified Accountants
- Chartered Institute of Management Accountants
- Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development
- Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply
- Chartered Management Institute
- Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales

As well as a number of research groups, we host two important research centres: the Centre for Research in Innovation Management (CENTRIM) and the Centre for Research on Management and Employment (CROME), both focused on conducting and applying their research findings in collaboration with industry.
Working with business and industry
As a business school we are dedicated to supporting business development and to collaborating with businesses in innovative ways.
As well as undertaking contract research and providing bespoke corporate training, we also facilitate and support a number of business network in the region. This interaction creates opportunities for our students to gain relevant experience while they study, allows us to apply our research practically, and ensures that our courses are always up-to-date with the realities of modern-day business.
