Welcome to the University of Sussex Business School. We have many academic and Professional Services staff dedicated to helping you make the most of your time and studies here at the Business School.

With the help of the whole team of academic and Professional Services staff in the Business School, the key people responsible for making sure you are supported throughout your time here, and that your teaching and learning experience is the best that it can be, are your Dean, Associate Dean for Education and Students, and Director of Student Experience. Click on their photos to find out more about them:

Hi, I'm Steve McGuire and I'm the Dean of the University of Sussex Business School.

As a student here, I hope that you will enjoy your time with us and be able to participate fully in the Business School community.

My aim as Dean is for you to be given every opportunity to achieve your potential and enjoy success in your degree and life beyond Sussex.

Your voice as a student is an important and influential one - and hearing your views on the things we're doing well, as well as the things we could do better, is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

Feel free to stop me in the Business School, say hello, and let me know what you think about how we're doing!

My name is Susan Smith and I'm the Associate Dean for Education and Students at the University of Sussex Business School.

In my role, I am responsible for making sure that your learning and the teaching you receive within the Business School is the best that it can be.

I oversee the management of the curriculum - the way that your courses and modules are taught and assessed - to ensure that your learning goals are met.

My work involves meeting and talking with students, individually and as a group, and I look forward to seeing you all in and around the Business School this year!

I'm Frank Brouwer and I'm the Director of Student Experience (DoSE) at the University of Sussex Business School.

In my role as DoSE, I work with the Student Experience team, student representatives and student mentors to make sure you get the support you need as students here.

Areas of student support we can help with include:

  • exceptional circumstances (when there are health or other good reasons affecting your performance or completion of assessments)

  • reasonable adjustments (if you have a disability, specific learning difficulty or particular health issue and need support arrangements to be put in place)

  • attendance monitoring and learning agreements.

It's important to us that your time here is enjoyable so we also arrange events throughout the year to add to what you learn in the classroom, including our welcome evening, field trips, employability events, and my personal highlight of the year: the annual Business School awards ceremony!
