Praise for personalised education as Nottingham Business School receives reaccreditation for global excellence

Nottingham Business School (NBS) has been praised for its best practice in personalised learning as part of a reaccreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

NBS was first accredited by AACSB in 2016 and has now been reaccredited for the maximum of five years. AACSB is the most recognised form of specialised accreditation that an institution and its business programmes can earn.

NBS is also accredited by EQUIS and the Small Business Charter, as well as by EFMD for its International Business courses. NBS is also an exemplar of sustainable and responsible business and management education and has held a UN PRME Champion role for more than four years.

Particular areas of excellence highlighted by the review team include the impact that NBS’ commitment to personalised learning has on the student experience and outcomes; the School’s connectedness to business and the opportunities this brings for experiential learning and employment opportunities for its students; and its culture of continuous improvement and a supportive and caring environment for students and staff.

The passion of all NBS stakeholders for research impact and sustainability was also noted, along with the impact that its research has on society – such as its work on measuring the impact of COVID-19 on the voluntary sector and involvement in a European project to minimise waste using Big Data and Internet of Things sensors.

Executive Dean of NBS, Professor Baback Yazdani, said: “I am very proud of all colleagues, students and stakeholders who have helped to achieve this reaccreditation. NBS is a truly unique business school with a philosophy of experiential learning, personalisation of our entire student experience, connected to the world of business in everything we do and of course with a very strong research and education in responsible and sustainable business.

“These pervade every area of NBS, and not only do we personalise education to the learner’s individual needs and ambitions, but our international partnerships and connectivity to the world of business mean we can offer them a range of valuable and inspiring placements, internships, industry projects at a great scale.

“I am especially pleased that the panel noted our commitment to continuous improvement. Our mission is to provide education and research that combines excellence with a positive impact on business and society, and we are always striving to introduce new innovations to achieve this.”
