Who We Are


CED - who we are

Our experience is uniquely honed from our position in the heart of Birmingham, the second largest and the most diverse city in the UK.

By engaging with us for the development of your executives, you benefit from  this experience of empowering individuals with the knowledge and confidence to continuously make a positive impact for themselves, their organisation, their industry - not just for today, but for a long time into the future.

Major benefits of working with us

We bring you not only the broad portfolio of tried and tested business school tools but also:

Aston Business School’s 60 year track record of successfully devising and delivering executive development programmes.

Our peer-tested fresh insight springing from what the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) judged to be‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ research.

Our standing as one of the top 1% of business schools in the world, and one of a very few to have triple accreditation from EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB.   

Because we recognise that you are a post-experience and often a post-MBA market, we create customised accredited and non-accredited programmes for your executives, packaging existing and new management knowledge to address your organisation’s specific business needs.
