Student Experience

 

Learning

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.

Practicing

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.

Developing

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

Thriving

Employed Aston Business and Management graduates earn £11,000 (39%) more than the UK average five years after graduating (Longitudinal Education Outcomes, 2020).

Leading

We’ve made the top 100 in the world for Business and Management studies in the QS World University Rankings 2020. 
We’re part of an elite group of global business schools who hold the gold standard of ‘triple-crown’ accreditation from AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), AMBA (Association of MBAs) and EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System).
100% of our business research achieved the highest rankings of 3* or 4* and was judged to have delivered ‘outstanding’ or ‘very considerable’ external impact in the latest Research Excellence Framework.

Living

We are the UK's second-largest city and located in the middle of the country, offering excellent travel links to Europe and great flight connections to the rest of the world.  There are many interesting places within easy access, with London an hour and a half away by train and Stratford-Upon-Avon – home of Shakespeare – as well as Warwick Castle both less than an hour away.
