Edinburgh Napier Business School

The Business School at Edinburgh Napier University is expanding.

Due to recent positive developments within the school, we are now recruiting across a range of subject areas.

Currently one of the largest business schools in Scotland, our facilities include 200 and 400-seat lecture theatres, language and multimedia labs.

In the National Student Survey 2022, The Business School scored 84% for overall satisfaction, and #7 University in the UK for Tourism, Transport, Travel and Heritage Studies in The Times & Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023.

Under the leadership of Professor Christine Cross, we equip students for every aspect of business, with career-focused courses covering subjects including accounting, financial services, law, management, marketing, languages, tourism, hospitality and festival and event management.

Our ethos is empowerment, enterprise and employability for all, and a ‘focus on practice’ is at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on having academic staff who bring their extensive knowledge of research and knowledge exchange as well as hands-on sector experience to the classroom.

Our close connections with industry are further strengthened through our established links with professional bodies including the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA).

We are committed to internationalisation and deliver degrees with TNE partners in China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Over the course of the past 25 years, we have developed our international presence and activities to the point where more than 3,500 students now study on our programmes overseas. We are also currently working towards AACSB accreditation.

The Business School is based at our Craiglockhart campus, home to the iconic Lindsay Stewart lecture theatre, known fondly as ‘The Egg’, beautifully merging the old with the new and sitting comfortably alongside the original building with Wester Craiglockhart Hill as a backdrop. The campus also houses ENU’s Bright Red Triangle business incubator and Bright Red Ventures consultancy.

Why Edinburgh Napier University?

We are the Top Scottish Modern University for Research Power & Impact and currently #1 university for Student Satisfaction in Edinburgh for the third consecutive year according to the National Student Survey 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Our phenomenal results from the Research Excellence Framework (REF) (2021) are testament to our growing strength and capability as a research institution. These results, alongside our consistently positive National Student Survey results and sustained high levels of graduate employability, demonstrate the increasing impact of Edinburgh Napier's collective work, quality and commitment.

According to the REF 2021, Edinburgh Napier University is the top ranking Scottish modern university for both research power and research impact. 68% of our research was assessed as either “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”, up 15% since 2014. Additionally, the University’s research power metric rocketed from 250 to 718.

How do these results help us make a difference?

The University’s improved research power rating will now see our research funding increase as we take significant strides to grow our reputation as a research-focused institution as well as a teaching one. We are confident that we are well on our way to establishing ourselves as one of the UK’s world-leading universities in research.
