The School of Business and Law’s aim is to make a real difference to people, practice and society.
Our mission is to advance and support responsible enterprise for a fairer society through education, research, collaboration and thought-leadership. We promote inclusivity, social justice and employability, and prepare learners by engaging with industry.
The School of Business and Law is based on our Moulsecoomb campus in the buzzing city of Brighton, on the south-east coast of England. We’re just one hour away from the UK’s capital – London, and just 30 minutes by train from London Gatwick International Airport.
