With many universities, colleges and private institutions offering various business degrees and courses, it can be hard to know where to start searching and what to look for. Studying business is an investment in your future – here are four highly recommended institutions worth considering.

Hult International Business School

Hult International Business School prides itself on not only teaching business courses but giving students the skills and vision they need to see how their qualifications and potential career path fit into the present day global business market. The school harnesses experiential learning, and students grow through reflection on things they have done. Graduates leave with a global network of contacts, potential investors and business venture ideas at their fingertips to give them the best chances of success and learning through opportunity. The school also has a central Zone 1 location, making it easily accessible.

All students are taught additional aspects of business such as respecting and understanding local cultures, how to develop their own critical thinking, and how to harness future technologies to drive business advances (such as cryptocurrency and AI). Most importantly, students learn through experience and practice by working to solve real life problems so that they can develop renowned leadership skills.

Courses offered include undergraduate, graduate, and executive MBA programmes. Hult International Business School is accredited by three of business education’s most prestigious organisations, including The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), EQUIS (The European Quality Improvement System) and Association of MBAs (AMBA). Entrepreneurs also have great opportunity in the Hult Prize – a competition linked to the United Nations in which business candidates solve challenging global issues with workable business solutions. The winning candidates receive funding to implement their vision and bring it to life.

London Business School

London Business School is an ideal choice for an academic approach to business learning. Using evidence-based research and teaching methods, the school encourages its students to think both originally and practically in their studies. The campuses’ central location ensures that a strong network of various cultures and business opportunities surround students, offering them inspiration and a multicultural environment for learning. Students are given a strong sense of community and support during their studies, so they are able to achieve their full potential. All are encouraged to question and challenge, so they can find new ways of thinking and learning whilst developing leadership skills that will carry them forward in their careers.

With 130 faculty staff from over 30 countries, London Business School has a global reach and understanding of business. The London Business School Executive Education programme reaches 8,000 students every year and is accessed globally in 35 countries. The school is the only non-American business institution to have a full-time MBA programme ranked as among the best in the world.

CASS Business School

CASS Business School is a part of the University of London. The institution offers undergraduate, MBA, MSc, PhD and executive programmes with a balance of practical and theoretical exercises. It also boasts strong connections with firms based in the City, as well as other international businesses, with a strong community and an accessible business opportunity network. Ranked highly among the best business schools in the world, CASS blends passion with discipline and the intellectual with the practical. Students are taught in a way that enables them to grow as leaders in a thoughtful and approachable way.

Imperial College Business School

Imperial College Business School was first opened in 2004 by Queen Elizabeth II. It is connected to Imperial College London, which specialises in science and technology. The business school therefore concentrates on these main subject areas in its work, and also encourages an entrepreneurial approach. There are three main departments within the institution – finance, innovation and entrepreneurship, and management (depending on students’ desired specialisms).

Collaborators with the Imperial College Business School include business leaders, governments and policy-makers. Students are encouraged to form innovative business solutions and embrace entrepreneurship to develop business opportunities. Students also have access to a global contacts network to ensure that they have lines of opportunity to develop successful and enduring careers in the world of business.

Imperial College Business School doesn’t offer undergraduate degrees, but students studying at Imperial College London do have the option to study management modules as part of their degree courses. The school offers many postgraduate programmes, including Master’s (MBA) courses, Joint Master’s courses and Doctorates. Courses cover a wide range of topics including investment, risk and analysis, innovation and competition, marketing, organisational behaviour and sustainability.
