Establishing its first presence in London within The Shard, Warwick Business School opened its doors in September 2014 on Level 17. It has become one of the world’s leading business schools with its executive MBA course ranked in the world's top 20, and top in the UK for stand-alone Executive MBAs.

Warwick Business School strives for excellence in research and can genuinely claim to be home to some of the world’s best researchers, employing a panel of part-time Distinguished Research Environment Professors whose appointments are shared with leading overseas universities. These people concentrate on mentoring and promoting research of international significance and on deepening international research ties with partner institutions.

“THE SHARD IS A BEACON WITHIN LONDON. IT’S AN IMAGE OF VIBRANCY, OF DYNAMISM, OF DARING AND, IN SOME SENSE, OF ENTERPRISE – AND I THINK THERE CANNOT BE A MORE ATTRACTIVE OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR STUDENTS AND OUR STAKEHOLDERS TO LEARN WITH US THAN WITHIN A BUILDING SUCH AS THE SHARD.”
Mark Taylor
Dean, Warwick Business School

The School's world-class researchers are also superb teachers, skilled at using a variety of teaching methods to engage and instruct. They also employ Professors of Practice, people who combine academic expertise with substantial business experience to aid the practical learning in the classroom. The lure of working with top-class scholars and real world expertsmeans the School always attracts the very best candidates and the company is always stimulating.

Warwick Business School's vision is straightforward. What underlies everything is academic excellence and the impact it has on society. The School’s mission is to produce and disseminate world-class, cutting edge research that shapes the way organisations operate and businesses are led and managed. Warwick Business School also aims to produce world-class, socially responsible, creative leaders and managers who think on a global scale, regardless of the size of their organisation.

As constant innovators, new partnerships with organisations like the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Design Council are bringing fresh perspectives to their work.

Warwick Business School is a vibrant, cosmopolitan community of academics, students and alumni, who are changing the world of business.
