Warwick Business School (WBS) is a world-class business school at the heart of a world-class University, challenging assumptions and championing business as a force for good. From the pioneering research we undertake, to the students we help to shape, we are for the Change Makers who will impact the world for the better.

We were the first UK business school to be triple accredited by the major bodies (EQUIS, AMBA, AACSB) and our courses consistently rank highly (our Distance Learning MBA is first in the world, our Executive MBA is ranked first in the UK and sixth in the world, and our MSc Management is ranked first in the UK and ninth in the world). However, we're more than our rankings and we're proud to be different. We're down to earth and approachable, and we want WBS to feel like home to our students, our staff and our alumni community. We look to provide a stimulating and fulfilling work environment for all. One where you will feel supported and encouraged to grow professionally; developing your knowledge, skills, confidence and career.

Our vision

Our vision is to be Europe's leading University-based business school, developing transformational ideas and people that shape how we do business. This vision is supported by our three-fold mission:

1. To develop cutting-edge research that leads debate and deepens our understanding of the practice of business and management 2. To provide a transformational learning experience, enabling our stakeholders to realise their full potential 3. To work in partnership with policy and practice, both in terms of our research and teaching activities, to catalyse the impact of our work.

Everything we do is underpinned by our CORE values and driven by a commitment to a Change Maker mindset. We look for this shared commitment across our staff and student community.

• Change Makers see the bigger picture. Thinking beyond themselves and their environment, they're open to other viewpoints and consider the ripple effect of what they do on a personal, social, and commercial level. They're driven by having the biggest positive impact and a focus on the greater good. • Change Makers challenge the norm. Challenging the status quo and not just accepting things at face value is when real impact and change can be delivered. • Change Makers have the drive as well as the vision. It's one thing having a vision but having the drive and work ethic to realise a vision is another matter. Change Makers relentlessly pursue every possible solution in order to achieve their goals.

Our CORE values

• Curiosity. We challenge, we embrace different perspectives, and we think creatively to build our future. • Openness. We're open to different perspectives, talking to stakeholders, listening to feedback, embracing change and pushing forward for the better. • Restlessness. We're not satisfied with standing still, and never stop looking for ways to improve. Constantly evaluating, we don't stop when we've achieved one thing; we use all of our initiative, drive and resourcefulness to achieve more. • Excellence At a world class university and a globally recognised business school, excellence is a given. There are no half measures at WBS.

We offer a broad range of undergraduate, graduate and executive courses. We recruit the brightest students, offer exceptional learning experiences, have a positive impact on society, produce impactful research that is published in premier journals, and employ outstanding faculty who are global experts in their fields. We are a global school with a cosmopolitan outlook.

We believe in the power of an entrepreneurial mind-set to change the world for the better, and that business schools should have a significant role in fuelling that change. So we welcome the problem solvers, value creators and change makers who share our intellectual curiosity. As one of Europe's leading global business schools we set out to lead the debate through our transformative research, and to develop inquisitive minds that will make a positive impact in an ever-changing world.

Our vision is: to be Europe's leading University-based Business School, developing transformational ideas and people that shape how we do business. Our vision is supported by our three-fold mission: • To develop cutting-edge research that leads debate and deepens our understanding of the practice of business and management. • To provide a transformational learning experience, enabling our stakeholders to realise their full potential. • To work in partnership with policy and practice, both in terms of our research and teaching activities, to catalyse the impact of our work.
