This is an enviable opportunity to shape and nurture the future of research at a business school with a history of fresh thinking - and ambitious plans for growth.

The centre of new ideas, the foundation of excellence

Westminster Business School is one of the largest University business schools in the UK, with a turnover exceeding £45 million and more than 350 full-time and visiting staff. We’re renowned for the strength of our professional practice focus, which is built on impressive corporate connections, the success of our executive education portfolio, the impact of our research and the number of professional accreditations we hold.
