Sheffield Business School (SBS) is a large modern business school with over 6000 students, defined by an ethos of practice-based educational excellence and research combining academic rigour with practical application. We have a diverse portfolio of programmes across thirteen subject groups in three departments; (i) Finance, Accounting and Business Systems, (ii) Management and (iii) Service Sector Management. Our mission reflects our core purpose as a Business School of the real world, committed to making a positive difference in business and society and focused on offering practical solutions to real business needs. Engagement with employers is integral to the curriculum. Every undergraduate programme includes consultancy or real-world projects, and work experience to develop work-based skills and commercial awareness runs through each level.
With more than 80 nationalities represented in our Sheffield campus there is a rich mix of cultures, languages and business perspectives that build global awareness, transnational perspectives and broadened ambitions. The embedding of PRME (Principles of Responsible Management Education) across SBS programmes and the development of research in the field of ethics, responsibility and sustainability demonstrate our aspiration to be increasingly recognised internationally for responsibility, sustainability and ethics in business and management education. Our research and intellectual contributions regularly address ethics and sustainability issues to the extent that we have recognised a Signature Research Area on the theme of Social Enterprise, Cooperative and Voluntary Action that brings together a significant number of academic colleagues with an interest in ethical business practice.
