AMBA closely monitor the quality of programmes, and recently validated our whole Masters provision. In 2014 we were accredited for another five years!

Accommodation and your Guarantee

SMB is central to the Llanbadarn Centre, approximately 15 minutes’ walk from your accommodation. There is also a regular bus service and plenty of parking.

Staff are drawn from academia and the private sector to give students a cutting edge view of business theory and practice.

Learning Resources

With electronic access to all the learning resources you’ll ever need, over 1400 networked PCs, and a wireless internet connection in every room, you’ll never struggle to find the information you want when you are trying to complete an assignment. If you like turning the pages of real books you’re in luck too. Less than five minutes away from the Centre is the National Library for Wales, a copyright library that holds an edition of every book or periodical published in the United Kingdom (6 million +). Five minutes in the other direction is the Hugh Owen Library where all the University’s books and journals are held. The classes are held in the newly refurbished rooms which have state of the art teaching facilities. £4.5 million has been spent renovating the teaching facilities in the past year, creating world class learning facilities. Master’s students also have a resource room, with computers specifically for their needs. The renovations cater specifically for post-graduate study needs!

As well as achieving your degree, for the best start in the business world you need to have the most up-to-date skills and techniques. Our teaching covers the fundamentals of management and business, with an emphasis on applied knowledge supported, where relevant, by accreditation from professional bodies.
