Keele University’s Business School is expanded its offering with a host of new courses and a new Director at the helm. 

Dr Scott Bambrick has joined Keele from Manchester Metropolitan University, where he was Head of the Strategy, Enterprise and Sustainability department. 

Dr Bambrick said: “This is a very exciting time for me to be joining Keele Business School, as we look to grow our programmes, increase our student body, and ensure we continue to develop and deliver excellent courses.  

“In being regionally embedded and by working closely with local and national partners and businesses, all our students will be given the opportunity to engage with industry and gain valuable employability experiences. 

“By enhancing our global reach through research, partnerships, student mobility and accreditations, we will focus on the internationalisation of our student experience, helping them better prepare for life after graduation from Keele Business School.” 

Dr Bambrick’s appointment as the Director of Keele Business School coincides with a time of change across the school, with a suite of new courses also on offer. 

In addition to the existing portfolio, KBS now offers single honours courses in Marketing; Accounting; Business Management; Business Management and Economics; Human Resource Management; and Business and Supply Chain Management. 

Students of KBS not only learn from industry experts at the top of their fields, but also benefit from extensive connections with businesses for education, research, and placement opportunities. 

Earlier this year KBS received Small Business Charter accreditation in recognition of its commitment to supporting small businesses and the local economy.
