Professor Kevin Kerrigan, Executive Dean for Newcastle Business School said: “Winning such a prestigious award is further evidence of the transformation of Newcastle Business School over recent years. The clear focus on excellence in terms of student experience, graduate employability and partnerships with businesses and professors around the world has built a culture of innovation and success.”
