Newcastle Business School at Northumbria

The 2018 UFHRD conference will be hosted by Newcastle Business School, a School of the Faculty of Business and Law of the University of Northumbria. The University of Northumbria is a large metropolitan university comprising 35,000 students across four Faculties.  

Newcastle Business School comprises a community of over 7,500 campus-based students and 200 academic staff of which 52 staff lie within the OHRM subject group.

Newcastle Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) for both business and accounting. The School is also accredited by EPAS for 18 undergraduate programmes – more than any business school in the UK. We are proud to have been awarded the prestigious Times Higher Education ‘Business School of the Year’ in 2015.

Newcastle Business School offers programmes at every level of business education: undergraduate, postgraduate, post experience and doctoral. We are also at the forefront of technology-enhanced and research-rich learning to improve the student experience. Professional business associations or institutions accredit a number of our programmes. This includes the CIPD’s accreditation of both our postgraduate and our undergraduate HRM programme.

The employability of our graduates is demonstrated by our position in the top decile for graduate level employability in The Times University Guide.  This ranking is supported through a strong focus on experiential learning and clinic-based education where students develop relationships with real businesses and gain direct experience in problem solving. Additionally, our Student Engagement Centre helps and actively encourages students to take up work placement, overseas study and volunteering opportunities.

Newcastle Business School engages actively with the local community and makes a meaningful contribution to the regional economy. Through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships we provide academic and professional expertise to help organisations improve profitability and efficiency. Our Corporate Executive Development Centre also works with more than 700 business leaders and managers offering learning experiences that enable significant and sustainable change.

The Business School’s forms as part of the University’s ‘£70 million iconic state-of-the-art City Campus East’ campus, which is situated only a 5 minutes walk from the main campus precinct and close to Manors Metro station.
