Essex Business School

Essex Business School in Colchester

Business as usual? Not at Essex.

We're champions of responsible management and sustainable business. We use creativity and innovation to drive organisations forward and make them better places to do business.

We’re an intellectual community of more than 2,000 international researchers, students and entrepreneurs. Together, we’re working to transform society through excellence in business and social science research.

Our undergraduate, postgraduate and executive education courses provide an academically rigorous business education informed by real-world expertise. But we can do more than simply advance your career; we’ll help you harness the power of business to shape a better world.

We offer different courses at our Colchester and Southend Campuses, both just an hour from London.

So, if you're fascinated by human relationships and culture and want to dig deeper, welcome home.
