Business School


We are a triple accredited business school: the first business school in Scotland to hold this accolade, and one of only 74 in the world (2016), to be triple accredited, holding accreditation from the international bodies, AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS.

Our departments and programmes also hold internationally recognised industry accreditations:
– Department of Human Resource Management is a CIPD approved centre
– Department of Accounting and Finance accredited by CIMA and ICAS
– Department of Marketing is accredited by Institute of Export, Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Market Research Society
– Our Hospitality & Tourism degrees are accredited by the Institute of Hospitality

More recently, we were awarded the Small Business Charter Gold Award – joining an elite group of institutions at the forefront of entrepreneurship in the UK. SBS is now one of only five universities in the UK to have the Gold Award, recognizing its world-leading support for scaling Scottish firms through innovation, internationalisation and leadership.
