The Faculty of Business and Law delivers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, including Accounting, Law, Politics, Marketing and Business Studies, designed with employability in mind. Based in the Hugh Aston Building, the faculty offers excellent teaching, research and strong links with industry.

The Business School

The Business School’s five departments offer undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and research courses and expertise in:

Our multinational student body makes the school a vibrant workplace. We don’t expect students to simply study business; many are already running their own companies before they graduate. The Business School helps support the entrepreneurs of the future by providing original ways to develop business skills.

The staff within the Business School are representative of our diverse student body. We have a diverse and progressive leadership team who strongly advocate the need to ensure the Faculty enables talent to flourish. DMU Freedom underpins the university’s belief that everyone should have the freedom to be, the freedom to inspire and the freedom to succeed. The Faculty works hard to ensure all our staff and students are afforded the respect, inspiration, space and support to reach their full potential.

The Fox’s Lair

The Fox’s Lair, inspired by television’s Dragons’ Den, sharpens the business skills of our first years. Student entrepreneurs come up with ideas, research them fully and pitch to real-life business talents from a range of industries. 

The Innovation Centre

We support our students and graduates at The Innovation Centre by providing a professional and creative environment where they can explore business ideas. Academics and research staff also use the centre, and hold informal meetings with partners and collaborators.

The Law School

The Law School prides itself on offering teaching quality across a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and professional legal courses. Our commitment to outstanding student experience and innovative research has been supported by continued investment in staff, resources and infrastructure. 

We believe we offer excellent physical resources, some with real distinctiveness – for example, a 19th-century assize court housed in the 12th-century Great Hall of Leicester Castle.

Our international outlook means staff and students can take part in overseas engagement and travel. We want all our academics to share their expertise, and spirit of scholarship and enquiry, with their students, and also nationally and internationally. They are supported in this by our focus on balanced teaching loads, clearly defined research days and research flexibility.

Law, as both a social reality and professional vocation, informs our work thanks to our legal practice specialisation.

Your development

Your career journey with us begins with a comprehensive induction programme. You’ll have a friendly introduction to your team, and a face-to-face Corporate Induction event, where you can meet and put questions to the vice-chancellor.

Your probationary period is an opportunity to exchange regular feedback, so you know how you are progressing and get the support you need to succeed. You’ll also take part in the annual Achievement and Development Review, identifying your development needs and objectives beyond the probationary period.
