Teesside University International Business School

Welcome from the Dean

At Teesside University International Business School we're proud to do things differently.

Warren Harrison, Dean

We believe that entrepreneurship is a powerful driver of economic and social value creation and that it is a skill that can be learnt.

We're a modern, enterprising and dynamic Business School offering a blend of academic excellence, entrepreneurial thinking and real-world orientation.

Through entrepreneurship education, we develop leaders with the skills, knowledge and mind-set to make a real, practical difference to people's lives and the success of businesses and economies.

We develop confident, enterprising and proactive graduates who are:

  • civic in thinking
  • enterprising in attitude
  • collaborative in action
  • global in outlook.

We have a rich and deeply embedded culture of innovation and enterprise where academic theory is explored through real-world examples within a supportive but challenging learning environment.

Enterprise underpins all our programmes, which cover the full range of career development opportunities from higher degree apprenticeships and undergraduate degrees through to postgraduate, doctoral and executive education.

We've built strong links with leading global organisations including the Bank of England, Hyper Island, Kaplan and TEDx. We also work closely with regional partners such as the North East Chamber of Commerce, Darlington Building Society and Middlesbrough FC.

Our courses offer accreditation or exemptions from a range of professional bodies including the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

We recognise and develop the relationship between student learning, research, knowledge transfer and business engagement for the benefit of students, staff, businesses and the social, economic and cultural development of the Tees Valley region and wider world.

Working with key partners, we identify companies with scale-up potential and support them with mentoring, help to access finance and new markets, leadership programmes and skills training designed to help them grow.

Challenge your thinking and secure your future success and impact in the world with Teesside University International Business School.

Principles for Responsible Management Education

Responsibility and sustainability are central to all of our activities, from our teaching and research to our engagement with the wider business community.

We equip current and future leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to transform their organisations and wider society. To help us do this, we're proud to have joined a global network of Business Schools as a signatory of the United Nations' Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative.

These principles underpin our curricula to empower our students to become responsible leaders and to ensure a sustainable future for society.
