Our vision, mission and values

RHUL campus 


To be recognised internationally as a centre of excellence for inspiring and empowering our students and staff to realise their full potential for the benefit of society.


  • Provide an excellent management education that equips our international student body with the skills and knowledge required to thrive in a rapidly-changing world; an education that is interdisciplinary in nature and encourages critical thinking.
  • Support and deliver internationally excellent and world-leading research that also informs our teaching.
  • Make a positive difference to management policy and practice through our research and teaching.


Intellectual curiosity

We value the continual pursuit of new and innovative knowledge. We seek to inspire and enable our students and staff to enjoy an inquisitive and critical approach to scholarship. We are committed to building relationships which further inform and stimulate our intellectual curiosity and constructive criticality.  We also value and encourage intellectual curiosity and critical thinking in our students, and seek to design our curricula and teaching and learning activities to foster this intellectual curiosity and criticality.

We recognize that time and space are both required to identify and explore new fields of study, and that opportunities for interdisciplinary discussion and engagement have a vital role to play in this process.

Collegiality and mutual respect

At the heart of our culture at the School of Management is our collective sense of responsibility and care for each other within the College and through our relationships with our stakeholders. Amongst members of academic faculty, teachers and professional support staff collegiality means a committed concern for each other and our collective endeavour.  We have the utmost appreciation of our past, present and future students and other stakeholders alike and seek to share our knowledge and goals with them in building mutual respect.


We understand integrity as consistency in character, operating in terms of our ethics and values. Integrity points to the moral character of the members of our School, which we seek to communicate through our actions, research and teaching.

Diversity and inclusivity

We celebrate our diversity, seeking to uphold the dignity of every member of our multicultural School, and to integrate and embrace our full range of capabilities.

The School is committed to providing a positive, inclusive environment in which individuals and diverse groups with multiple identities and individual differences are recognized and valued equally.   All who engage with the School, whether staff, students, applicants or visitors are treated fairly, with dignity and respect.


We strive to remove conditions that may hinder any staff or student member from
reaching their potential. We want to equip all members of the School with the
knowledge and opportunities to thrive.
