Dean, School of Business
London South Bank University, Dean, School of Business
London South Bank University (LSBU) has recently won the Times Higher Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year Award, has also been named the University of the Year for Graduate Employment by the Times/Sunday Times, and has been awarded a TEF Silver rating.
Under the leadership of Professor David Phoenix, LSBU is now one of London’s leading modern universities. With a new creative and entrepreneurial approach to teaching and learning, and a renewed commitment to research that has real-world impact across the disciplines, LSBU is an organisation that is fast becoming a university of choice for the new generation of students.
The School of Business provides student-focused teaching and research across a range of disciplines – from Business Enterprise, Economics and Accounting to Marketing, Human Resources, and Management. It has three divisions: Accounting & Finance, Business & Enterprise, and Management, Marketing & People, each of which provides a dedicated hub for innovation. Improving NSS scores, newly accredited courses, and good facilities are all testament to the quality of the provision within the School, for which a range of new initiatives give an indication of the opportunities for the new Dean.
The new Dean will provide academic and operational leadership to the School of Business. With a strong personal record of accomplishment, and credibility in a relevant area of academic endeavour, the ideal candidate will have the managerial and strategic ability to develop the School in the challenging HE sector. Being passionate about the student experience and furthering applied research, as well as demonstrating an aptitude for leading across a diverse range of business subjects, will be critical, as will enthusiasm for making a significant contribution to LSBU’s Senior Management Group more broadly.
