Celebrating 25 years of excellence

This academic year Nottingham University Business School celebrate its 25 year anniversary. We will be marking this milestone throughout the year with a series of events and reflections – not only on the past 25 years, but what our future challenges might look like. 

In 1998, the University of Nottingham’s School of Management and Finance was renamed Nottingham University Business School and moved to Jubilee Campus (UK) the following year.

Since then we have expanded to include our schools in Malaysia (2000) and Ningbo, China (2005).

Our community comprises over 400 dedicated staff supporting more than 7,000 students representing 115 nationalities and boast a thriving alumni community of nearly 30,000 as of 2023.

Nottingham University Business School is among an elite group of business schools worldwide to have achieved ‘triple crown’ accreditation – AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS - a testament to our commitment to excellence.

Celebrating global entrepreneurship

Global Entrepreneurship Week, from 13 to 19 November 2023, was the perfect platform to showcase the diverse achievements of our entrepreneurial community. The week serves as a prime opportunity to not only celebrate inventive minds but also to shine the spotlight on the innovators who have shaped our journey over the past 25 years.
