Transform the way we do business

Through the four key international accrediting bodies - AACSB, EQUIS, UNWTO and PRME - the Business School continues to strive and transform the way we do business by identifying four areas of commitment: entrepreneurship and innovation; ethics, responsibility and sustainability; engagement; and impact.

Entrepreneurship and innovation

The Business School is a place where students are encouraged and inspired to pursue an entrepreneurial journey. Numerous experts in the field and a vast ecosystem of resources support the unique needs of innovators, both inside and outside the classroom.
