About Business MPhil at Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) rated 85% of Westminster Business School (WBS) research to be of an internationally recognised (2*) standard, or higher, placing us among the top post-1992 university business schools in the UK.

In addition, 40% of our output and impact is rated at 3* or 4* indicating internationally excellent and world leading research quality. A total of 23 staff members were submitted across various disciplines and we are proud of the significant impact that our research has on the academic community and on our society.

We have a strengthening research culture in WBS with wide-ranging interests in several specialist areas within the general field of business and management. We currently have three Research Centres and two research groups that are developing portfolios of research recognised to be internationally excellent and, in some cases, world leading. Our research attracts funding from leading grant awarding bodies such as the ESRC, the Leverhulme Trust and the Nuffield Foundation. We have also developed strong links to various government departments including HM Revenue and Customs, HM Treasury, the Ministry of Defence, the department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Cabinet Office.

Our research seminars draw both external and internal speakers and our research students also benefit from the annual doctoral colloquium where they present their work and receive feedback from senior researchers. We have currently have over 50 doctoral students who have access to their own doctoral facilities in a separate part of the business school. In addition, our doctoral students benefit from extensive doctoral training that is offered at both University and college level. Our doctoral researchers are directly taught by our research Professors who provide key insights at critical stages of the doctoral lifecycle.

WBS is a Centre of Excellence for the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, our MBA is accredited by The Association of MBAs (AMBA), and we have strong links with the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Government Economics Service.

What students think about Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

    Vanessa De Silva, Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda

    Testimonial from Vanessa De Silva, Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda, student at Westminster Business School, London
    As an international student I was looking for a Master's program that would offer me an experience and education that I could utilise worldwide. The University of Westminster was a simple choice for me knowing the superior level of education, top quality professors and fabulous location offered. The culturally diverse group of classmates held various levels of professional experience which enriched my learning as we continued to develop and challenge each other.

    Having completed the MA Human Resource Management specialising in Employee Relations I have acquired an education which lead me to a fulfilling career rather than a short-term job. As a Management Consultant in an Employment Services firm I work with local and international clients and have continued to develop my practical experience in employee relations, policy development, recruitment and performance management.

    Andrew Behles, Trainee Chartered Accountant, Nexia Smith & Williamson

    Testimonial from Andrew Behles, Trainee Chartered Accountant, Nexia Smith & Williamson, student at Westminster Business School, London
    As a US national with relatively little experience in international accounting standards and practices prior to beginning the course, the WBS Msc in Finance and Accounting provided me with a useful blend of accounting theory and practice that has well equipped me for securing a job in international audit in the UK upon graduation. And with up to six exemptions from ACCA exams, its easy to see a quick and tangible return on investment.

    Owen Coughlan, RBS Global Banking & Markets

    Testimonial from Owen Coughlan, RBS Global Banking & Markets, student at Westminster Business School, London
    A Distinction in my Masters at the University of Westminster gave me the knowledge and confidence to gain a coveted job in an investment bank. Having a solid grounding in theory combined with practice in my Westminster Business School degree enabled me to take on the added responsibilities I needed to advance my career.
