Business not as usual

The natural choice for students and organisations who want to align their success with the needs of communities and the planet.

The world is facing some monumental challenges. At Loughborough Business School, we believe that business schools can play a key part in driving change – not only to meet organisational goals, but to help tackle big societal issues and make the world a better place.

It's this philosophy that has kept us at the forefront of business learning. Loughborough is one of the most highly awarded higher education institutions in the UK and regularly features in world rankings, too.

Join us to shape a fairer, more sustainable future, while supercharging your career and the performance of purposeful organisations.

Leading the way for over 30 years

We’ve been engaging with organisations and economies since we first began. We’ve had a compulsory placement for over 30 years, ensuring students engage with industry and put what they are learning into practice.

Our vision now is to be the first-choice business school for purpose-led people and organisations, nurturing students and helping them find fundamentally different ways to do business.

Why Loughborough Business School?

First-choice business school for purpose-led people and organisations

If you want to raise the game of purpose-led business while developing your career, Loughborough Business School is the ideal choice. We’ll help you nurture your purpose and practice, by opening your eyes to new business models and innovative ideas, and supporting you to build your career in resilient, sustainable organisations.

Teaching with purpose

We offer more than just a course. Our programmes are designed to meet the needs of industry – influenced by our experience with hundreds of global corporate partners and the ground-breaking research of our internationally renowned academics. You’ll be working with partners and researchers who are out there making a difference – and can help you do the same.


We’re consistently ranked as a top 10 university in national league tables. We also hold triple-accreditation from AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. (It’s a triple-stamp of approval, which means you’ll be getting the highest quality of education, from teaching and research to student support and facilities).

Turning theory into practice

We were one of the first business schools to embed a year-long paid placement for all our business undergraduates (and for any economics students who want to do one). You’ll have the chance to get hands-on experience in a relevant organisation, giving you an extra heads-up in the jobs market. And the chance to test out your skills.

Support to help you be your best

Coming to university can feel like a lot, but we’ll make sure you have access to all the support you need. As well as the Programme Director for your course, your Personal Tutor will be there to advise you on your academic progress, provide pastoral support, and help you get maximum benefit from all the opportunities at Loughborough.

Opening up a world of possibilities

Whatever you choose to study with us, you’ll gain a fantastic grounding in the fundamentals of your subject while also learning about new, more purpose-driven ways of working that will open up a world of possibilities for your career. You’ll develop sought-after skills and confidence you can take with you, whether you go on to make your mark in an organisation, or choose to set up your own.

Are you ready to join us, and progress with purpose?
