Our staff have established a reputation for developing innovative teaching methods, pioneering the use of gamification and creating games and simulations to make our students’ learning experience more rewarding. As well as extensive industry experience, some of our staff are responsible for writing the key textbooks used in their field.


Our students experience real-life business activities through initiatives such as module partnerships, delivering our in-house business and law clinics, working with charities such as The Prince’s Trust and engaging with organisations of all shapes and sizes – from start-up micro businesses to multinationals.


Our postgraduate students benefit from a professional development programme known as The Aston Global Advantage. This focuses thinking and actions on more elusive social and personal aspects of business, offering opportunities to work or study abroad.
