Newcastle Business School -- Who We Are
Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Newcastle Business School is one of the largest Schools within Northumbria University. Our roots go back over 50 years, and we adopted our current name in 1989. Since then, as one of the longest established UK business schools, we have been inspiring excellence in organisations and individuals across the globe.
With a student population of 3,800 and a further 2,200 students studying at our partner institutions overseas, we are a truly international business school. This wide-ranging international presence opens up exciting career opportunities for our students, as our graduates emerge as business-ready and highly employable, wherever in the world, they wish to live and work.
Our undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes are delivered by highly qualified and experienced academic staff who are actively engaged in research, consultancy and development activities with leading organisations. Newcastle Business School is run by a team of dedicated staff including teaching staff, administrators and researchers plus part-time and adjunct lecturers.
Newcastle Business School delivers first-class teaching in a world class environment, as 2007 saw the opening of our brand new £70 million iconic state-of-the-art development in the heart of Newcastle City Centre. Known as 'City Campus East', this futuristic development comprises 24,000 square metres of purpose designed academic accommodation at the cutting edge of design and technology.
The new world-class centre for learning will further develop the reputation and quality of our programmes and services and offer students, staff and businesses alike the chance to access state-of-the-art facilities.
Labelled as, "one of the most exciting new estate developments in the sector" by the Times Higher Education Supplement, the stunning new City Campus East has received high acclaim, having been named as the North East Landmark of The Year 2007. The awards highlight regional building excellence and reward developments that highlight the best in concept design and construction.
As well as the innovative interior, the exterior of the buildings also plays a major part in the new landmark status as they are illuminated each night, providing a stunning addition to the city's skyline.
Professor Paul Croney is the current Dean of Newcastle Business School, a position he was appointed to in 2003. He is responsible for the leadership and general management of a £21 million business school with 200 staff and 6000 students.
