Why choose the University of Gloucestershire?
At the University of Gloucestershire Business School we are driven by one primary goal: we want our graduates to be career-ready. That means graduating with academic excellence and substantial real-world experience. It’s an important combination. It means you’ll be well-rounded, business-minded and able to attract the attention of potential employers more quickly.
Forging strong links with professional bodies and the business community, courses run by our Business School are designed to give you the skills you need for the working world. For over 30 years we have established an innovative portfolio of Accounting, Business, and Marketing programmes.
95% of our graduates are in jobs or further study within six months of graduating due to the business partnerships our students build while they are here.
We will support you to take advantage of every opportunity while you are here at university, including work placements, internships and volunteering. You will develop specialist and real-world business skills ready for your career.
“You get to feel what it’s like in a career as well as a university. To actually have real experience makes the learning so much more valuable.” - Abi Newson, Business School graduate, now doing a HR Leadership Development Programme with IBM where she did her work placement.
From 2018, the University of Gloucestershire Business School will move to a brand-new, state-of-the-art home at our Oxtalls campus in Gloucester.
