Leeds University Business School
Leeds University Business School is one of the leading business schools in the United Kingdom.

LUBS offers a wide range of Masters degrees. The School is rated 'excellent' for learning and teaching, their MA/MSc programmes maintain their reputation for quality and for combining high academic standards with practical application to today's rapidly changing business environment.

It was awarded the highest research rating of 5 in the last Research Assessment Exercise (2001), equal to the ratings of Oxford, Cambridge and Manchester Business Schools. That research feeds directly into their taught Masters programmes.

Since its successful period of growth in the 1990s LUBS is now internationally recognised as one of the UK's leading business schools, with more than 1,500 undergraduate and 500 postgraduate students from over 50 countries studying for a diverse and flexible range of degree programmes.

Over 100 academic staff, including 26 professors, bring a rigorous but practical approach to learning and teaching in the School through carefully planned programmes which benefit from their experience in both the academic and business worlds. Most are pre-eminent in their field and have a significant number of books and publications to their name.

The career and personal development element of the programme takes as a starting point that career preferences, skill levels and preparedness for new roles and jobs evolve all the time. This means that a concern with career development is as important for a student committed long term to their present employer, as it is to those wishing to either change employer or career path. The MSc Business Management programme provides an opportunity to systematically reflect upon preferences, skills and career choices. Assistance face to face, and online, will provide students with the chance to review their career preferences and choices and to take steps to plan for the future, and acquire the skills and attributes necessary for personal development.
