Quick info

Overall, a really positive university experience! I'd happily recommend Edinburgh to anyone, and reckon it ticks the boxes on a whole range of criteria for prospective students - city life, accommodation, variety of courses, societies and lots more.

The triple-accredited University of Edinburgh Business School has a long and established tradition of research excellence, opening the doors to our first cohort of students in October 1919.

We’re committed to developing tomorrow’s business leaders, like any Business School. But what really drives us is helping you play to your strengths, add to them, and develop strong relationships that will open up the world to you. These relationships are built amongst your peer group, who will come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and professions and who will provide the beginnings of your international network. In Edinburgh you’ll experience this global melting pot in a compact, friendly, safe city known for its striking architecture, intellectual legacy and festival culture.

The world of business never stands still, so it’s important we as business educators keep pace with the developing agenda to deliver the skills our students need to stand apart, and create the leaders needed to address emerging challenges.

We work closely with professional bodies including the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) institute to ensure our human resource management and finance programmes provide graduates with the accredited qualifications they need to secure professional roles. The School is also tripled accredited (AMBA, AACSB, and EQUIS) thereby giving you reassurance of quality.
