Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University is one of few business schools worldwide that have double AACSB accreditation for both Business and Accounting. We have an outstanding reputation in the delivery of business relevant programmes that are underpinned by research. Northumbria's improvement in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework for research power was reported as being the biggest in the country, and within our Business and Management submission over 60% of our Impact was assessed as either world leading or internationally excellent. Many of our business programmes have EPAS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development and/or enjoy professional accreditation from a range of highly regarded professional bodies. In 2015, Newcastle Business School won the prestigious Times Higher Education “Business School of the Year” award.

With excellent interpersonal skills, you must be able to demonstrate expert knowledge in the field and be able to teach effectively on a range of academic and professional programmes using a variety of approaches to student learning.
