School of Business and Economics launched

Loughborough University has officially launched the School of Business and Economics, in a move that will help to strengthen its position as an international leader in research and teaching across management, business and economics.

The new School brings together the portfolio of activity previously managed by the Business School, the Department of Economics, and the Professional and Management Development Centre,

The School is led by Professor Angus Laing, Dean of Business and Economics. 

He said:“Loughborough is operating at the cutting edge of academic research in key areas such as Microeconomics, Human Resource Management and Marketing, but our work is also intimately connected to the world of practice, having a direct impact on business and industry managers, policy makers and global organisations.

“This formation of the new School will help us to consolidate our position as one of the leading institutions across these areas.”
