About the School

Westminster Business School, the University of Westminster, located in the heart of London, is one of the largest centres for business and management education in the UK. The School offers number of specialist business Postgraduate Courses which are accredited or recognised by the relevant professional association.

The School is also engaged in conducting applied research that is relevant to all areas of business, and much of which has gained an international reputation. Finally we have built a reputation for enterprise, knowledge transfer in the London region and work with public and private organisations across the UK. 

We are London's leading professionally focused and research-informed business school.

The School is cosmopolitan, having a diverse student population representing over 100 nationalities, which reflects London's demographic variety and nearly a third of our full-time students come from outside the UK. 

Our staff too are drawn from many countries, and every year we welcome visiting scholars and researchers from all over the world. Although we are a school with a strongly international outlook, we also draw on a long tradition of providing part-time courses for Londoners. For nearly 80 years the School has served the needs of busy professionals and business people living or working in the capital giving our full-time students a unique opportunity to network with active business community.

Our strong links with the London business and government enable us to bring practitioners and headline-makers into the classroom on a regular basis. In turn we help arrange student placements, internships and mentoring which give our students an important hands-on experience and involvement with the world of work.

The School has growing research and consultancy strengths in a range of areas, including employment research, financial services and international finance, leadership, and business strategy. We host conferences; workshops, seminars and other events open to the public, and regard the dissemination of new ideas to the outside world as an important part of our function.

Course Portfolio

We have a wide range of specialised taught and research business Masters Courses created to fit current and developing requirements of the professional business community. These include specialisms in:

Accounting, Finance and Economics

Business and Management

Human Resource Management


Property and Construction

All of our courses are designed to incorporate an international flavour to the subject matter and because of the modular nature of our programmes, options can often be taken from the whole range of the Westminster Business School postgraduate portfolio.


The School is on the University's Marylebone Campus, close to Baker Street tube station and opposite Madame Tussaud's wax museum. We have a building to match our aspirations. A superb modern library, hi-tech lecture halls and teaching spaces, IT computer labs and comfortable study spaces reserved for our postgraduates. All in all, a great place to study.

We are one of only three business schools in the UK with the purpose-built Bloomberg Financial Markets Suite (FMS) exclusively utilising the Bloomberg platform for the purpose of providing a state-of-the-art teaching and research resource. Students, staff and researchers gain firsthand exposure to technology widely adopted in all the leading global investment banks in the major financial centres of the world: the City of London, New York's Wall Street and Tokyo's Citibanks.

Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster Student Reviews

  • Vanessa De Silva

    Management Consultant, Expertise Limited, Bermuda

    As an international student I was looking for a Master's program that would offer me an experience and education that I could utilise worldwide. The University of Westminster was a simple choice for me knowing the superior level of education, top quality professors and fabulous location offered. The culturally diverse group of classmates held various levels of professional experience which enriched my learning as we continued to develop and challenge each other.

    Having completed the MA Human Resource Management specialising in Employee Relations I have acquired an education which lead me to a fulfilling career rather than a short-term job. As a Management Consultant in an Employment Services firm I work with local and international clients and have continued to develop my practical experience in employee relations, policy development, recruitment and performance management.

  • Andrew Behles

    Trainee Chartered Accountant, Nexia Smith & Williamson

    As a US national with relatively little experience in international accounting standards and practices prior to beginning the course, the WBS MSc in Finance and Accounting provided me with a useful blend of accounting theory and practice that has well equipped me for securing a job in international audit in the UK upon graduation. And with up to six exemptions from ACCA exams, its easy to see a quick and tangible return on investment.
