We are a non-departmentalised school within QMUL’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), with its traditional strengths as a site of critical thinking in the humanities, law, history, geography and politics.

The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have around 75 academic and 16 administrative staff, with more appointments in process. We have over 1,000 undergraduate business management students, plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have around 450 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of 50+ doctoral students.
