Southampton Business School

Inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs and leaders in accounting  

Southampton Business School (SBS) is placed at the centre of the University of Southampton, a top 100 University in the world and a founder member of the UK Russell Group University. SBS hosts a vibrant and diverse community of scholars and students. It has grown substantially in breadth and size in the recent years, covering all core business and management disciplines via six Departments: Accounting, Banking and Finance, Decision Analytics and Risk, Digital and Data-Driven Marketing, Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour, and Strategy Innovation and Entrepreneurship. SBS academics conduct cutting edge research and publish consistently in world-class journals. Research activity within SBS is coordinated through ten multidisciplinary research centres. The longest established research centre is the Centre for Operational Research, Management Sciences and Information Systems (CORMSIS), which ranks top 50 (QS) in the world. Building on its continued success, SBS is now ranked in the top quartile of the research-intensive business schools in the UK, with a strong research environment which is ranked 12th (REF2021) in the UK. The School has an ambitious growth plan, which includes investments in people and facilities. The school has recently relocated to a state of art business building. 

Building on this success, in July 2022, the School secured AMBA 5-year re-accreditation of the MBA programme which is ranked 13th in the UK (QS data) and its AACSB accreditation was recently re-extended for another full period of 5 years. A member of the UNPRM, our commitment to the SDGs was also recognised through the GRI accreditation. The school holds the CABS Small Business Charter award in recognition of the SBS’ world-class support to students and local businesses, including the development of student entrepreneurial skills and the support and development of wider economic and social opportunities for business. Our placement team has been recognised as one of the best in the UK, demonstrating our commitment to the student experience. In 2022 our accounting & finance students were recognised as the global winner in the global Bloomberg challenge demonstrating our commitment to excellence. In 2024, the subject of Accounting & Finance enters the top 100 group in the global QS ranking.  We value our relationship with our global network of alumni, who are successful leaders, entrepreneurs and members of our engaged community of academics, students, business leaders and entrepreneurs. SBS hosts a vibrant Leaders and Entrepreneurs in Residence Network. 

Our research underpins our enterprise and educational activities. With an extensive programme portfolio accredited by 14 professional bodies we aim to develop future leaders who want to make a tangible impact on business and society. At the heart of the execution of our activities is our triple helix model whereby our research, education and enterprise activities are intertwined. Particularly, our integrated enterprise strategy enables us to reinforce our connections with the wider university, and communities we serve. These connections enable us to further deliver impactful research and improve the student learning experience.
