    Essex Business School

At Essex Business School, we champion responsible, ethical and sustainable business. Through our world-class research and teaching, we train our students to think critically about business and encourage them to make a positive impact on society. 

If you're thinking about studying one of our postgraduate courses in business, management, entrepreneurship, accounting, finance or banking then you might wonder what this approach means for you. So join our free course, meet the experts and find out.

This free online course comprises daily sessions, specifically designed to introduce you to some of our sustainable and socially conscious research and teaching.

Each 90-minute session will be delivered by our expert academics, giving you the chance to meet the tutors, ask questions and discover what studying at Essex Business School at postgraduate level is really like.

You can pick and choose which sessions to attend and you will be eligible to receive a certificate of attendance if you attend four or more sessions on request, once the course has completed. 

Together we can use business as a power for good.
