Queen Margaret Business School

A member of the Chartered Association of Business Schools, our approach to teaching and research in business related subjects is distinctive in three ways

(1) Our focus on providing the optimum balance of theoretical and practical approaches, with strong industry links.

(2) Our emphasis on the need for ethical, social and ecological responsibility in business.

(3) Our entrepreneurial focus. Our students benefit from the University’s Business Innovation Zone (which hosts start-ups) and on-campus Business Gateway, and many go on to create their own businesses. Our Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR) can also support staff, students and recent graduates to develop their innovative thinking, creative skills and entrepreneurial ideas through webinars and one-to-one support sessions. More information on EiR workshops

We offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate business and management education programmes in business, accounting and finance, marketing, events, gastronomy, and hospitality and tourism management. Our offering includes online courses, options to study single modules, and a new Graduate Apprenticeship route.

We foster a global mindset in our students and staff, promoting international projects and exchanges and delivering our courses at centres across the world.
