Sustainability at Nottingham Business School

At Nottingham Business School we cultivate our students to become globally responsible leaders. So we lead the way by following a sustainable and ethical path across all our endeavours - environmentally, socially, financially and economically. And in all our courses, we encourage our students to think deeply about global sustainability challenges and embed the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in our programmes so that they can make a lasting and positive impact on the world.

We stretch our minds across every continent, connecting and collaborating with outstanding institutions and businesses who, like us, want to inspire positive change. By forging these deep global synergies, we propel economic, environmental and social development further than we could ever do alone.
