Kent Business School

Kent Business School was established in 1989, building on two decades of postgraduate management education and research at the University. Our MBA programme was established in 1991 and, in September 1992, we moved to new, purpose-built premises. In 1995 the University's programmes and staff in Accounting & Finance and in Industrial Relations & Human Resource Management were transferred to the School, followed in 1997 by programmes and staff in Management Science. The School has 1676 students on two campuses, 293 postgraduates (including 56 research students) and 1383 undergraduates, distributed across all our programmes.

A strategic decision to invest in it has seen the Business School grow in size and calibre since 2003. The appointment of new and highly motivated staff has transformed the research culture within the School, attracting interest nationally and internationally. Through the dedication and commitment of all our staff, we are steadily building on the successes of our foundational years to create a forward-looking Business School with global reach, creating stimulating research and learning environments.

The 2008 RAE results demonstrate the School's research excellence. Kent Business School moved up from 52nd place in 2001 to 21st place, as more than half of the School's research activity (55%) was classified as 'world leading/international excellent research' (3* and 4*). Overall, the Business School ranks 29th, positioning the School in the top third of the 90 UK Business and Management Schools included in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
