The School of Business, Management and Economics (BMEc) at the University of Sussex has been created to engage with the new challenges facing business and economics in the second decade of the 21st century. Forming the foundation of our values is an emphasis on innovation, sustainability, responsible business and the fight against inequality.
In addition to the broad range of expertise our faculty offers, we have particular strengths in development economics, international finance, entrepreneurship and innovation as well as the core business areas such as corporate finance and banking, marketing, international business and operations management. The location of SPRU - Science and Technology Policy Research within the School brings high-level links with government and key policy makers around the world, as well as 40 years of excellence in the study of innovation across a wide range of sectors such as medicine and computer software.
The courses offered by the School combine rigour and breadth: the possibility of taking some electives outside the core disciplines (for example in psychology) is a traditional strength of programmes at Sussex, allowing individuals to take on different intellectual challenges and to broaden their educational experience.
In addition to a broad range of full-time and part-time undergraduate programmes, the School of Business, Management and Economics runs a number of distinguished postgraduate degrees including an MBA and Masters degrees covering topics such as business, economics, and technology policy. The School also offers an international summer school.
