The Business School for the Creative Industries

approach to Business

We believe that society needs pioneering and rounded global business players to thrive - so we’ve ripped up the rule book on traditional business teaching.

Our Business School for the Creative Industries is the first of its kind in the UK. Building on UCA's long tradition of putting creativity and innovation at the heart of business, we are equipping students with the skills, industry experience, and entrepreneurial mindset they need to influence genuine change.

Based at our Epsom campus - only a short distance from central London - our business students turn their ideas into reality, collaborating with students from across our creative disciplines.

Our grads and researchers are not only bringing business approaches to the creative industries, they are introducing creative approaches to businesses not traditionally seen as creative, from tech firms to NGOs.
