How Kingston Business School works with professional bodies

Kingston Business School works closely with the business world's principal professional bodies to ensure the education we provide meets the needs of today's practitioners. Our qualifications demonstrate that students can put theory into practice, and so hold real value for leaders in industry and society.

Kingston Business School is a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Approved Centre.

We enjoy recognition or accreditation from:

  • Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development;
  • Association of MBAs;
  • Chartered Institute of Marketing;
  • Market Research Society;
  • Institute of Direct Marketing;
  • The Law Society; and
  • various accounting professional bodies (partial).

We also offer courses in partnership with both private and public sector specialists such as the Institute of Internal Communication and the National School of Government.

Linking the MBA with the workplace

The MBA project

The MBA project bridges the gap between business theory and business practice: you will undertake a major piece of research that has important managerial implications that you can apply in your workplace straight away.

Networking opportunities

Many of our postgraduate students have significant experience in the workplace and are combining study with their career. This means you can benefit from the networking opportunities provided by meeting other students with managerial positions in organisations in London and beyond, such as Heinz, HSBC, BT, PricewaterhouseCoopers and British Airways. Find out more in the Networking section.

Alumni network

Kingston's Alumni Association grants free lifelong membership to all graduates. You will have the chance to meet regularly to continue your professional development or simply to network and socialise.
