What makes us different?
Simply, it’s the way we think about business. It’s the way we explore and embed it, as we develop brave, innovative, well-connected graduates. Because for us, business isn’t just something to be taught — it’s something to be lived.
We’ve built our School, curriculum and culture around the same principles we cover in our courses. That means a focus on sustainability, a commitment to personalisation and choice, and plenty of hands-on, collaborative business opportunities. Study with us, and you’ll be immersed in the practice of business — not just its theory.
Exceptional facilities. Experiential learning. Multiple accreditations, a thriving entrepreneurial community, prestigious guest speakers, and a teaching staff drawn from business leaders around the world. This is the confident, contemporary approach to degree-level business education: this is the NBS Experience.

We bring business off the page and into the real world. Our courses are built around a comprehensive learning cycle of cutting-edge theory, practice, applied experience, observation and reflection. It makes for an insightful, exciting, and rigorous learning experience.

“I chose NBS because of the variety of options to navigate my studies. Particularly, the opportunity to run an enterprise project, and to have a year in industry at a company. The academic aspect of the course has really grounded me in knowing how to use economic theories in real life situations.”
