Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), a business school established in 1964, forms one of the four faculties at Lancaster University, whose campus is south of the city of Lancaster.
The business school is one of only a few in the world to hold quadruple accreditation, with the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Small Business Charter in the UK, the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) in Europe, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in America
It offers study at all levels, bachelor degrees, MBAs, PhDs, and executive education for those already with experience.
LUMS has worked in partnerships with many companies, such as AstraZeneca, British Airways, and BAE systems, as well as public sector organisations such as the NHS and the UK Cabinet Office.
Several postgraduate programmes include modules designed and delivered by employers, including Deloitte, IBM, Accenture and Cisco. The school’s undergraduate degrees are partnered with Ernst & Young, allowing students to do two periods of paid work experience with the company.
Research centres at LUMS include the Centre for Consumption Insights, the Centre for Productivity and Efficiency, and the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare.
Many LUMS students participate in Lancaster University’s international exchange programme, doing Study Abroad programmes with partner universities in countries including the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Malaysia, Holland, Spain, France and Germany.
Notable alumni of the business school include a CEO of Crossrail Rob Holden, BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Richard Allinson, and Unilever chairman Antony Burgmans.
