Nottingham Business School

Nottingham Business School is responsible for delivering Business and Management educational services within Nottingham Trent University. Our national and international networks, coupled with our high academic standards, ensure that in choosing us as a place to study, you are benefitting from the knowledge, experience and resources of many leaders in the field of business, industry and research.

Nottingham Business School (NBS) is proud to have achieved EQUIS accreditation – an international benchmark of excellence for business schools. Fewer than 1% of business schools worldwide have both EQUIS and AACSB accreditation, confirming the rigorous and innovative standards of our teaching and research, and the balance we consistently strike between academic quality and professional relevance. Reflecting our commitment to a professionally focused, hands-on business education – individually tailored to the needs, interests and ambitions of our students – these accreditations consolidate NBS' reputation for excellence, both at home and abroad.
