About

History

Portsmouth Business School was founded in 1985 and integrated as a faculty within the University of Portsmouth in 1994. We are a multi-cultural community of students and professional staff who foster a shared responsibility for the achievement of personal, academic and career success.

Education

Over 5,000 students (of whom a quarter study at postgraduate level), including 1,400 international students from over 100 countries, supported by 250 staff. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses across accounting, business, economics, finance, human resource management, law, marketing, leadership and other specialist management subject areas.

Research

2015 proved to be another highly successful year for Portsmouth Business School (PBS). The undoubted highlight was in September when we welcomed over 800 colleagues from over 40 countries to the Annual British Academy of Management (BAM) Conference – the largest BAM Conference ever! Building on this success we are now busy planning to host the 58th Conference of the Operational Research Society in September 2016, and the following year the Association of Law Teachers 52nd Conference will visit us (April 2017).
