The University of Edinburgh Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) and the Association of MBAs (AMBA). This triple accreditation highlights the quality of teaching and excellence of research at the School.

The Business School has approximately 100 academic staff who cover the full spectrum of business and management disciplines, organised into six subject groups, each managed by a Head of Group: Accounting and Finance; Entrepreneurship and Innovation; Management Science and Business Economics; Marketing; Organisation Studies; and Strategy. Detailed information can be found at the School website at www.business-school.ed.ac.uk

Our aim is to be respected by academics for the outstanding quality of our scholarship and listened to by practitioners for the relevance of our expertise. A commitment to excellence in research lies at the heart of all we do, and academic staff are expected to be full and active members of the School’s research community. Research is, in turn, supported by a generous sabbatical system and as far as possible, teaching activities are organised to protect the time that staff have available for research. The School is actively differentiating itself with recruitment of faculty and major new investment in four new crosscutting interdisciplinary research and engagement ‘platforms’.

The outcome of the UK’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 confirmed the excellence of our research. Our GPA of 3.04 ranked us 21st out of 101 UK Business Schools participating in the assessment exercise (up from 35th in RAE 2008). Research Fortnight’s measure of research power (which takes into account both the quality and the breadth of the research) placed us in 16th position in the UK, 2nd in Scotland. 71.1% of our research outputs were rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
