Beyond Business as Usual

Leicester Castle Business School at De Montfort University (DMU) provides a unique and diverse learning experience to prepare you to meet the challenges of business and society in the 21st century. We go beyond business as usual by encouraging our students to challenge convention and providing you opportunities and tools to think, create and inspire.

Our students achieve great successes, with more than 97% of our undergraduates going on to work or further study after graduation.

You will have outstanding support to define and refine a learning and career pathway that is right for you. We give you opportunities to stretch yourself, to learn, to practice and to prepare for a career in a global and vibrant world of business and public policy.

Beyond business as usual also means critically evaluating the purpose of business in the world today. At Leicester Castle Business School, you will debate the very meaning of good business and managerial practices. We challenge our students to create solutions to complex problems and to find opportunity in the most unusual places.

As one of the larger providers of business and management education in the UK, the school is organised into departments offering undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and research courses and expertise:
