Queen Margaret University launches Business School

Posted: 5th June 2018

Queen Margaret University has launched a Business School which will put a particular focus on the need for ethical, social and ecological responsibility.

It will build on the University’s expanding portfolio of postgraduate and undergraduate programmes in business, accounting and finance, as well as marketing, events, hospitality and tourism management, and executive education. It is a member of the Chartered Association of Business Schools.  

Professor Monika Foster, head of the Business School, said: “In launching Queen Margaret Business School, we are building on our strengths and our heritage as well as celebrating what we already do well which is research and business study programmes underpinned by our social justice, ethical and social responsibility ethos. 

“We already punch well above our weight and have some of the leading researchers in the field, recognised nationally and internationally.

“We are very collegial and achieve great results in student satisfaction, student attainment, innovation in our programmes, and graduate employability. We will use the higher profile of being a Business School to reach new markets with our wide range of professional and consultancy services to both the public and private sectors.”
