Sustainable business

Nottingham University Business School has a long history of teaching and research leadership in responsible business and sustainable finance.

The School is committed to educating future business leaders to develop ethical, inclusive and sustainable perspectives on business practices and growth. We bring a distinctive global awareness and perspective to issues of social responsibility and sustainability.

Through our teaching you will gain an understanding of all aspects of sustainable and responsible business practices. You will have opportunities to explore these in local national and global contexts and develop the skills to work towards a more sustainable future in business and society.  

It is our privilege to support our students, their organisations and their communities to seek better, more sustainable ways of working now and into the future.
