About

Education

You learn from teachers who are experts in their field, many of whom draw on their own practical experience in their teaching. Most are active researchers and enjoy sharing their knowledge and discoveries with you. Our teaching methods are varied; you take part in workshops, individual and team presentations, and use case studies to apply the theory to actual companies.

Research

Kent Business School has an international reputation for the quality of its research. Our research addresses many of the main challenges facing the global business community, and we work with leading companies and institutions including Parker Steel, Priority Freight, Port of Dover, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL).

Our staff publish frequently in leading international journals and write text-books used by undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Career

We are proud of the success of our graduates and to ensure this continues we offer targeted support to our students.

We have an experienced employability team who have developed a programme of seminars on employability, workshops and opportunities to meet with employers and gain work experience.

We can help you develop your great idea into a real business proposition and advise you on setting up your own business. We also run Dragon’s Den-style events to give you experience of pitching your ideas in a realistic environment.
