About us

New ExtensionWe are here to help you realise your ambitions and develop your potential as a manager and leader of the future

Growing from strength to strength we now have circa 94 academic and 25 administrative staff covering the main areas of management, and circa 1,200 undergraduates and 400 postgraduates across our suite of Masters courses.  In addition we have 85 PhD students. 

Our Roots: Royal Holloway College was opened by HM Queen Victoria in 1886.  In 1900 both Royal Holloway and Bedford Colleges were admitted as Schools of the University of London.  The year 1985 sees the merger of Bedford and Royal Holloway Colleges. In 1990 the Centre for Management was created under the Faculty of Social Studies.  Thanks to our founding members, historians Charles Harvey and Bob Fitzerald, 1990 saw the Centre gain School status.

Single honours were offered from 1994, and by 2000 several masters programmes had been developed.  By 2005 our MBA programme was accredited by AMBA.  In 2010-11 the School moved under the umbrella of the new Faculty of Management, Economics and Law, alongside two other faculties: the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Science with each managed by a Dean.
