At the best business schools, you'll be taught by staff widely recognised as leaders in their field of expertise: they win prestigious awards, publish extensively and hold positions of influence, such as editorial board members on major journals. They are actively involved in teaching, research and consultancy, with outputs incorporated into teaching to ensure MBA learning is cutting-edge.
National Teaching Fellowship
Organised and run by AdvanceHE (formerly known as the Higher Education Academy), the National Teaching Fellowship (NTF) is a UK award scheme which celebrates individuals who have made an outstanding impact on student outcomes and the teaching profession in higher education. The award, launched in 2000, recognises achievements which are inspiring and contribute significantly to the sector's efforts to continuously improve learning and teaching for the benefit of students and society. Many of these NTFs can be found teaching within the best business schools. They're often inspiring in other ways too: like Strathclyde Business School's Nigel Lockett who blogs as The Dyslexic Professor or Warwick Business School's Gabriella Cacciotti named as one of 30 management gurus in the world to watch by Thinkers50 as part of its Radar Class of 2019.
Teachers from industry & leaders in their field
The best business schools recognise the importance of faculty having professional and industrial experience, knowledge of which they can pass on to students. Many of their faculty come from and maintain their links with industry. Warwick Business School's Professors of Practice are all senior, very successful business and industry practitioners, who contribute to teaching and research. The impact, influence and reach of faculty extends across the globe, demonstrated well at the University of Exeter Business School. Here, the current list of prestigious academic fellowships and committee positions held by staff include fellowships of the Royal Society of Arts, International Academy of Tourism, Econometric Society, Centre for Economic Policy Research and Institute for Fiscal Studies, as well as membership of the Economic Science Association's Executive Committee, the Royal Economic Society’s Council and CIMA Research Board. Members of faculty are also Editorial Board members on major journals like Leadership Quarterly, Organization Studies and the Academy of Management Learning and Education.
