Aston Business School is committed to creating and transferring knowledge that enables, innovates and inspires. The School is a welcoming community, focused on the core learning needs of our students, our alumni, businesses, organisations and their leaders.
ABS' successes are reflected in its current 5 RAE (research excellence) rating and its teaching excellence. The School has accreditations for its courses from all the leading professional bodies and Aston is among just 1% of business schools worldwide with triple accreditation from AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS. It is rated in the UK National Student Survey in the top 10 institutions teaching business for overall satisfaction with the quality of courses.
Located in the heart of Birmingham, England's second city, ABS attracts leading faculty from around the world (36% of its 100 academics are from a non UK background). As a consequence of the School's rapid financial growth (200% in nine years), Aston University has recently invested in a £22m extension to the Business School, which includes an outstanding residential (160 bedroom) conference centre.
The School offers an inspirational and life changing experience for its 3000 students, whether at undergraduate, postgraduate or doctoral level. It also offers transformational executive education programmes for leaders and businesses in excellent new facilities.
All of the School's activities are underpinned by rigorous and relevant research, over 98% of which is rated as internationally recognised or internationally excellent. Aston Business School is committed to lead and enable transformation through teaching and research; to support and influence organisations and their leaders; and to contribute positively and substantially to society - regionally, nationally and internationally.
School of Engineering and Applied Science
Welcome to the School of Engineering and Applied Science Professor Ashok Kochhar, Head of School
Engineering and the application of science has always been one of Aston University's major strengths. With a tradition of quality education stretching back for over a century, the University is respected by students, employers and professional institutions alike for its academic excellence in both teaching and research. The School was awarded a coveted 5 for Research
in the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2001, and there is a good and long established reputation for cutting edge research within the School involving real problem solving whilst advancing scientific knowledge. The academic staff undertaking this research teach on programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, so new ideas and theories are always being developed within the curriculum.
We are continually developing new undergraduate
and postgraduate programmes
to meet the current and future needs of employers. Within the field of Engineering and Applied Science postgraduate skills and a qualification enhance careers, especially when they have a practical application and relevance to the needs of industry. The University's graduate employment record is outstanding as each programme is carefully designed with industry in mind.
