Regent's Business School London

 

Age: 14

History: In 1908 UCL’s Ladies College was able to take a Crown lease on South Villa in the Inner Circle of Regent’s Park. In 1984 the lease was taken by Rockford College, Illinois, which founded Regent's College primarily to provide a study abroad programme, and provide courses with a clear British focus. Gradually, other institutions began to take up residence on the campus. Regent's Business School London was established in 1997.

Address All classes are based at the single campus at Inner Circle, Regent's Park, London.

Ambience: The tranquil surroundings provide a haven from the fast pace of London life. The single campus in Regent's Park, one of the most popular Royal Parks in London, is surrounded by classical style terraces and beautiful rose gardens. The Park spans over 410 acres and includes a lake, canal and a number of villas. Regent's Park is home to the London Zoo, the Royal Botanic Society and a number of other organisations and institutions. It is also the largest outdoor sports area in London.

Vital statistics: Approximately 4,000 students on campus each year from over 130 different countries; including 3,000 undergraduate and 1,000 postgraduate.

Added value: The College’s practically focused courses develop students’ skills and employability in and outside of the classroom. Many courses place a strong emphasis on experiential learning. All courses help students to develop their teamwork and leadership skills, as well as improving research, negotiating and presentation skills. Completing your MA degree at RBS London not only gives you access to the American Webster University MBA programme, but also gives you exemption from 7 of the 12 modules required for the MBA award. This means that you could complete both the UK MA and American MBA in 18 months.

Easy to get into: Applicants should possess an undergraduate bachelors degree in any discipline at 2:ii (Lower second class degree) or above, or international equivalent.

Gurus: Eric Chan is the programme director and principal lecturer for Regent’s Business School MA Global Management Programme. He oversees the RBSL experiential learning courses in outbound leadership and team development. His own teaching and training areas include Human Communications, Leadership, Teams Development, Global Business Strategy Simulations, Human Communications, Brand You, Organisational Effectiveness, Business and Life Essential Skills (BLESS).

Cost: BA (Hons) tuition fees are £13,050 per year, MA degrees are £13,850.

Who's the boss? Professor Aldwyn Cooper joined Regent’s College as principal and chief executive in December 2006. Aldwyn Cooper is a cognitive psychologist by background. Since his time in the US as a Harkness Fellow at Stanford and Berkeley in the mid seventies he has worked with universities in the development of a wide range of distance and technology enhanced teaching, training and learning projects for the public and private sector.
