The award that Bristol Business School has been shortlisted for is the Business school of the year in the 2017 Times Higher Education category, which is an exceptional way of closing the year, according to the executive dean, Donna Whitehead while receiving the great news.

According to Donna, the nomination for this desired award comes at a perfect time , just when the high-tech building they invested in has become a reality.

The building is a representation of the method we use while teaching business education which puts a lot of emphasis on practice-based learning which is also supported by the way we get along with the many business partners in the area.

The business school has moved away from the old methods of structural learning areas and has put more effort in having active learning that is technologically advanced making it possible for the students to have more co-creation as well as problem solving as a students’ initiative.

The submission of the award looked at how the business school performed in the 2015/16 academic year, where the performance was good in the sections of enterprise and practice based learning involving business and research that had an impact.

The ratings of student satisfaction are great, based on the scores of the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS) with BA Business and Human Resource Management getting 100{4fdb5acd4891bace33ada2338e55dfcfb4968d3d0c3ddd4319d06b6e16894e20} while BA in Economics got a 98{4fdb5acd4891bace33ada2338e55dfcfb4968d3d0c3ddd4319d06b6e16894e20} score. Similarly, businesses in the area rate the institute in high scores.

Donna said that they have incorporated the latest methods of learning which include BA (Hons) Team Entrepreneurship, where a score of 98{4fdb5acd4891bace33ada2338e55dfcfb4968d3d0c3ddd4319d06b6e16894e20} of the NSS was recorded.

95{4fdb5acd4891bace33ada2338e55dfcfb4968d3d0c3ddd4319d06b6e16894e20} of the students from the institute are absorbed in the job market with 75{4fdb5acd4891bace33ada2338e55dfcfb4968d3d0c3ddd4319d06b6e16894e20} in managerial positions and pursuing further studies just a few months after they graduate.

All our courses include enterprise so that all our student s leave the institute with resilience, agility and ability to adjust well in the ever evolving working environment. We recommend to our students that they participate in internships during the summer which come with financial support as well as business mentorship programs.

Bristol Business school has partnered with Santander where students can take part in a Dragon’s Den competition where they stand a chance of winning up to £5,000.

A network of about 40 business leaders from various industry sectors come together in a Business Fellows programme where they work closely together to give guidance and mentorship to our students, guided by our academic structure.

Twice a year, there is a prominent Bristol Distinguished Address Series that takes place in the city whereby the entrepreneurs give opening lectures which are very insightful to thousands of employers as well as students.

In April 2016, EPAS endorsed our BA (Hons) International Business. Such an endorsement is held in high regards as an international accreditation system which is only given to the best business courses in the world.

A total of £1,121,0000 was raised through business and management research in 2015/16 which was more than all University Alliance Business Schools as well as a good number of Russell Group Business Schools.

According to Prof. Steve West, the president and Vice-chancellor at UWE Bristol, the Business School of the Year awards should rightfully go to the Bristol Business School.

He also appreciated the entire staff team throughout the institute for the dedication and commitment which made the school be recognized in such high ranking awards.

The award event will take place in London, The Grosvenor House Hotel , Park Lane on Thursday, 30th November.
