Business School welcomes new staff following launch of degree programmes

The University of Aberdeen Business School has welcomed a new intake of academic staff following the launch of several new degree programmes.

The eight new staff will teach and undertake research across a variety of disciplines, including accountancy, finance and management studies.

Their arrival is another milestone in a successful year for the Business School whose student population rose by 46% between 2016 and 2017 and has now launched ten new undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

New programmes include the flagship undergraduate MA/MBus International Business, which gives students the opportunity to study abroad while learning a new language, while a new Executive MBA aims to attract students who wish to enhance their career prospects through part-time study.

In addition to the growth in the student and staff population, last year also saw the opening of the University’s first overseas campus in Qatar, where 130 students - many of them women - have enrolled to study business degrees.

Meanwhile, the 2017 National Student Survey saw the Finance, Economics and Management Studies programmes score well above the sector average for student satisfaction, while the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide ranked the University as being in the top 15 for Economics and Accountancy and Finance.

Professor Bryan MacGregor, Executive Dean of the Business School, said: “The success that we have experienced over the last year is testament to the hard work and commitment of all of the staff here at the Business School, for which I am hugely grateful.

“The arrival of our eight new academic staff is indicative of our ambitions following the launch of several new degree programmes, and I am confident that we will continue to enhance our reputation for world-class teaching and research in the year ahead.”
