Portsmouth Business School

About us

Portsmouth Business School was founded in 1985 and integrated as a faculty within the University of Portsmouth in 1994. We are a multi-cultural community of students and professional staff who foster a shared responsibility for the achievement of personal, academic and career success.

Our School is located in the historic waterfront city centre of Portsmouth in the south coast of England. With a rich maritime history, Portsmouth is an attractive, friendly and vibrant city.

We have over 5,000 students (of whom a quarter study at postgraduate level), including 1,400 international students from over 100 countries, supported by 250 staff. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses across accounting, business, economics, finance, human resource management, law, marketing, leadership and other specialist management subject areas.

Our students benefit from our investments in the student experience, which include facilities such as a Business Simulation Suite, access to a Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) room, a Bloomberg Suite and a Mock Court room, which is located in Portsmouth Law School.

Our research strategy aims to nurture a coherent cross-disciplinary research community, embed our research within the teaching curriculum and build stronger links with potential partners in both the private and public sectors.

Portsmouth Business School has strong links with the real world of business. Our academics comprise leading researchers in their field and practitioners who have come into education after a career within industry. They are actively engaged in consultancy assignments and relevant projects, and work with senior executives from business start-ups and the public sector to global corporations.
