Aberystwyth University’s School of Management and Business has been shortlisted for the prestigious Business School of the Year Award at the Times Higher Education Awards 2014.

For 10 years, the Times Higher Education Awards have provided a sparkling backdrop for UK universities and colleges to celebrate the best teams and individuals in higher education, and the most successful institutions. The awards recognise exceptional talent, dedication and innovation across the board, from research to widening participation, teaching to entrepreneurship.

Speaking of the shortlisting, Professor Steven McGuire, Director of the School of Business and Management said: “I am truly delighted that the efforts of colleagues and students within the School of Business and Management have been recognised in this way.  We are very proud of how the School has developed since its establishment, and particularly since the School has become part of the Institute of Management, Law and Information Science at the Llanbadarn Centre. 

“The School attracts students and staff from across the globe, and our research portfolio continues to grow - providing both students and staff with an excellent learning and teaching environment, as well as fantastic research opportunities here at Aberystwyth.”

Professor Andrew Henley, Director of the Institute of Management, Law and Information Science, said: “I congratulate colleagues in the School of Management and Business on gaining the shortlisting, which demonstrates our commitment as a Institute and University to our Business School.

"We are looking forward in the hope of good news when the final results of the Awards are announced in November.”

Also shortlisted in the Business School of the Year category are the Henley, Northampton, Open University, Salford and Sheffield Business Schools.

In 2013, Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences won the Outstanding Contribution to Innovation and Technology at the Times Higher Education Awards.  Earlier this year, the University’s Planning Department was shortlisted for the Outstanding Strategic Planning Team at the Times Higher Education’s Leadership and Management Awards.

The winners of Business School of the Year will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony on Thursday 27 November at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
