Our vibrant School community provides an excellent management education that equips our international student body with skills and knowledge to thrive in a rapidly-changing world. Our learning approach is interdisciplinary in nature and encourages critical thinking. Royal Holloway’s internationally excellent and world-leading management research informs our teaching. Through the combination of real-world experience, academic and research expertise our students enjoy a range of academically stimulating undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. We enable students to evolve into successful managers and influential leaders with a deep understanding of the workings, challenges and opportunities facing modern organisations operating in an increasingly global and uncertain business environment, where comparative and cross-national cultural and social awareness are critical ingredients to management action and strategy. Additionally our excellent PhD programme prepares students to be the next generation of management scholars. Our goal is to enable students to engage and progress through excellent learning and teaching experiences both in and outside the classroom.
