The Business School

It has taken just over a decade to establish the University of Exeter Business School as one of the UK’s leading centres of business education and research. We have achieved this by striving to be the best we can be, bringing together inspirational and internationally-respected business teachers from around the world in an environment that combines historical and intellectual heritage with modern facilities.

The University of Exeter has been teaching business-related undergraduate degree programmes since 1955 and masters programmes since 1973 so we have a long track record in providing business education.

In September 2013 we were delighted to be awarded EQUIS accreditation, the world’s leading business school accreditation, for the first time – placing us in the top 1% of business schools globally. We intend to seek further accreditations, at both school and individual programme levels, to ensure that our programmes continue to be relevant to the needs of the business world and enhance student employability.
