South Wales Business School prides itself as being at the vanguard of innovative change within Wales, and beyond, by applying knowledge and research to the real-life problems facing people, businesses and communities.

It has aspirations of being unrivalled for professional and vocationally focused-education, and research-informed innovation and engagement.

We actively support the mission of the University to foster the prosperity and well-being of the communities that we live among and serve.

We have developed longstanding connections with the industries in which our research is grounded, and which spans a variety of public, private and cultural fields.

The Business School has strengthened its research footprint in terms of both output and impact since REF2014 by investing in, and developing, its teaching and research focused academic staff.
