Business as usual? Not at Essex.

Essex Business School is the largest department at the University of Essex and encompasses five broad subject groups: Accounting, Finance, Management and Marketing, Organisational Studies and Human Resource Management, and Entrepreneurship. Our teaching and research is delivered across two campuses: Colchester and Southend. We aim to teach leadership with integrity. We train our students to think critically about business and encourage them to make a positive impact on society.
