The University of Portsmouth is a dynamic and ambitious institution with a track record of success. One of only four universities in the south east of  England to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework and ranked in the top 150 in the Times Higher Young University World Rankings.

The University of Portsmouth achieved the highest ‘Gold’ rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) the UK government’s first assessment of teaching excellence in higher education. Portsmouth Business School has a track record of sustained excellence in teaching and research as evidenced by the consistently very high student satisfaction scores in the National Student Survey, the excellent employability record of our graduates, and the results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) submission. The breadth and depth of our research was viewed by the REF2014 panel as having an outstanding and very significant impact in economic, social and policy-making terms, placing us in the top 10% for impact; 87.5% of our research environment was rated as internationally excellent; and 62% of our research as world-leading or internationally excellent. 

We offer a full range of degree programmes across business, management, accounting, finance and economics, including PhD and the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programme. We combine excellence in research and scholarship with considerable business and consultancy experience, and provide leadership in the development and dissemination of sustainable business and management practice.
