Kent Business School, also known as KBS, is the business school of the University of Kent. Since opening in 1988, it offers undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD degree programmes, as well as non-degree 'part-time' executive education for individuals and companies. KBS is consistently ranked among the top 20 business schools in the United Kingdom.

KBS is sited in two locations, at The University of Kent main campus in Canterbury and at the Medway campus.

In March, Kent Business School at the Canterbury Campus moved into its new home, The Sibson Building. Named after the University of Kent's third Vice-Chancellor, Professor Robin Sibson, the state-of-the-art building with new teaching and learning spaces and modern social and breakout areas will encapsulate KBS academic values and identity.
