Accredited by EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA, it has the ‘Triple Crown’ so is in the leading one per cent of business and management schools worldwide.

The School has a clear and distinct mission to understand and enact socially responsible and sustainable work practices throughout the world.

Students at Sheffield University Management School benefit from excellent teaching and support in a renowned research environment. Eighty-one per cent of research conducted by their academic staff is considered world leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014) – this research informs the School’s programmes so students are taught cutting-edge knowledge from global experts and influencers.

Sheffield University Management School graduates are confident and have developed work-ready knowledge, skills and attributes, including critical thinking, leadership and team working. Throughout their studies they benefit from specialised skills sessions at the Employability Hub – an integrated facility exclusive to management students. A dedicated careers team is on hand to provide information and support on career planning, help with CVs, applications and interviews, skills events, job search, placements and internships, summer schools, and professional memberships. From the outset, undergraduates start their employability journey with a three-week intensive ‘Futures First’ event – this initiative is the first thing they encounter at the Management School.

The Sheffield University Management School experience combines exceptional facilities with rigorous, research-focused learning. Its mission and vision commit to making a difference to the world and are centred around sustainability and socially-responsible work practices. Students benefit from the School’s work in these areas at every stage of their learning, through modules and events to relevant guest speakers from industry and work experience opportunities. The University of Sheffield also offers an outstanding student experience – voted by students as the best in the Russell Group and top three in the UK overall. The Students’ Union has been number one for nine consecutive years (Times Higher Student Experience Survey 2017).

The University’s reputation extends to employers and organisations all over the world. Research with corporate giants such as Siemens and Rolls-Royce is conducted across many academic departments, including Sheffield University Management School whose relationship with Rolls-Royce includes an interactive sponsored module on its BA (Hons) Business Management. The Management School also ensures that students have access to different types of organisation, from local SMEs to NGOs and MNCs. An advisory board, made up of high-profile industry professionals from companies such as Santander, O2 and Tata Steel, guides the School from an external perspective and regularly contribute to taught programmes, ensuring that students get an up-to-date, real-world experience when studying at Sheffield.

Sheffield is a unique city, with the University at its heart. Although Sheffield University Management School has international reach through its research, teaching and partnerships, it also plays an important role in the local community.

It’s one of the greenest cities in Europe and counts the glorious Peak District National Park as part of its geography – all this nature envelops a vibrant, creative and prosperous city centre where you’ll find many of the University of Sheffield’s unrivalled library facilities such as The Diamond and the Information Commons.
