In Nov 2015 Newcastle Business School won the "Business School of the Year award" at the highly prestigious THE Awards. ( This is an outstanding achievement and one that all in the business school, students and academics alike, can be immensely proud of. The judges reflected that it was also the result of a strategic review which has seen the Business School establish research-rich and industry-relevant course content, partnerships with employers to create a strong curriculum focus on ethics and employability, and an emphasis on personal development and reflective professional practice. They went on to recognise that as a result, Newcastle Business School has seen a 41% increase in internship opportunities and now has the largest suite of programmes in the UK accredited by the EPAS scheme, run by international management education body the EFMD. In May 2014 the Business School joined an international elite by becoming one of only 10 global institutions outside the US, and the only one in Europe, to be accredited in both business and accounting by the international Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Times higher education award success was recognition of this and of other exceptional work.
