The Bangor Business School (BBS) is a component of Bangor University, which is located approximately 90 minutes away from Manchester. The school encompasses a wide array of business sectors, with Finance and Banking two specific areas that account for a major part of the curriculum. In addition, the subject of Financial Economics and the concept of Econometrics join the above subjects in key areas of research.
Students that are either at the undergraduate or postgraduate level at BBS learn from instructors that have conducted research projects. This information is offered during the course of class lectures, with some of the instructors also using the research to produce copy for textbooks and articles in financial journals.
BBS Faculty has also served as consultants with key entities like the Treasury of the United Kingdom and the World Bank. To supplement the research and work, those instructors will often bring in guest speakers for learning seminars.
Part of Bangor University’s College of Business, Law, Education and Social Sciences, BBS helps provide Executive Education instruction to aid current professionals in advancing within their chosen field.
