Welcome to the Roehampton Business School

On behalf of my colleagues at Roehampton Business School, I would like to welcome you to your new academic home at Roehampton. Our aim is to help you to develop into the sort of person that you aspire to be.

You'll be taught by a friendly, passionate, committed and qualified team of academics who have professional and academic expertise. All of your programmes are accredited by UK Chartered Professional Bodies – the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) or the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) – adding to the credibility of your course and your learning. You will be taught by colleagues who produce world class research, ensuring that you are familiar with the very latest developments in the field of business, accounting, human resource management and marketing.

We are particularly focused on developing your business readiness – your potential to make an immediate impact in, and long-term difference to, the organisation that you choose to work with when you graduate. We do this by helping you develop the knowledge and skills that will help you thrive in business. Work with us so that you are fully prepared for a challenging and rewarding career in business management.

All of our programmes are focussed on developing your business readiness. You will develop relevant knowledge and skills, and the ability to think critically, innovate and act responsibly. You will have opportunities to meet successful business leaders and entrepreneurs, including members of our Business School Advisory Board, and have the opportunity to gain relevant work experience through a one-year placement. You also have the opportunity to study abroad.

We offer many opportunities for you to get involved with the Business School and the University through academic events and student-led societies. I urge you to become a member of the University of Roehampton Business Society, which is run by students for students. Use them to develop personally and professionally. Aim high, and make the most of the activities and career opportunities you have available to you at Roehampton.

I wish you every success, and look forward to meeting you during Welcome Week.

Professor Sunitha Narendran
Head of Roehampton Business School
