Toni Hilton

Welcome to Brighton Business School

Welcome and thank you for your interest so far.  I’d like to share with you more about us, our strategy and our plans as well as how these professorial appointments will support us in achieving our ambitions.

The Brighton Business School comprises academic expertise in the following disciplines: Business (including Strategy), Management (including Operations and HRM), Law, Accounting, Finance, Economics, Marketing (including Events and Tourism). BBS is a ‘full service’ business school providing undergraduate (level 4-6), postgraduate taught (PGT: level 7) and research degrees (PGR: level 8) along with an integrated foundation year (level 3) and a range of Apprenticeship courses delivered in partnership with practice.

The School seeks to grow and has embarked on an ambitious change agenda.  In achieving this, the School will build on its expertise in practice-led learning that is informed by applied research. Our well-deserved reputation for engagement with practice has led to a research focus around enhancing performance through innovative practice. This is evidenced by the REF 2014 position of 5th in the UK for the impact of Business & Management research . The strategy will continue to support the design, delivery and dissemination of intellectual contributions that enhance practice.

Our mission is to advance, support and shape responsible enterprise through education, research, collaboration and thought leadership. Our vision is to be renowned for making a real difference to people, practice and society.

The School strategy will support the University of Brighton in achieving its Practical Wisdom strategy through our focus on:

  • responsible enterprise (of which social justice is a critical element);
  • practice-led learning that is informed by applied research;
  • inclusive practices that respect diversity;
  • engagement with practice;
  • preparing learners for practice

While strategic decision-making within the school is directly driven by our mission and vision, it is also influenced by our commitment to privilege practice-led learning that is informed by applied research within an environment that supports diversity. Engagement with professional bodies and a broad range of practitioners is a significant feature of our strategy and ensures that our curriculum and assessment of learning provides appropriate knowledge, skills and experiences to prepare learners for practice.

The primary objective for the school is the achievement of AACSB accreditation. The achievement of this ambitious goal will verify that Brighton Business School exhibits the good academic leadership practices and student outcomes associated with world-class Business Schools. The accreditation process is ‘mission-driven’ and provides the opportunity for the school to reach a shared understanding of who we are and what we stand for. It also provides an excellent opportunity for the development of an holistic and cohesive approach to our teaching, research and external engagement activities.

The University of Brighton is undergoing a significant investment in its Moulsecoomb campus and the new £40m academic building, that will house our Business School, will provide a stunning new front door for the campus.  Sustainability is at the heart of the new building which will utilise passive heating and cooling as well as natural ventilation, solar panels and water collectors. 

The current professorial appointments will further embed our commitment to responsible enterprise and social justice as well as building on our expertise in enhancing performance through innovative practice. The post holders will provide collegiate academic leadership in the design, delivery and dissemination of applied research that seeks to enhance practice.
