Management School Triple Crown accreditation

The University of Liverpool Management School holds accreditation from AACSBAMBA and EQUIS. This makes it one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to hold the gold standard 'triple-crown' accreditation.

Regarded as one of the most rigorous assessments, many top global recruiters will only consider candidates from AACSB-Accredited schools – a clear signal that our programmes respond to the needs of business and meet specific standards of excellence.

AMBA accreditation denotes the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education. MBA students and graduates, Business Schools, and employers all recognise it as a gold standard.

The School is also accredited by EQUIS. Institutions that are accredited by EQUIS must demonstrate not only high general quality in all dimensions of their activities, but also a high degree of internationalisation and corporate connections.

We strive to enhance the employability of our students and inspire future leaders to become socially responsible global citizens by providing careers education, including skill development activities and guest speaker sessions, and opportunities to work and Study Abroad.

BSc Economics

Why did you choose to study at the University of Liverpool Management School?
I chose to study Economics at Liverpool as, unlike other Universities, the Economics course here has a Finance pathway. This allows you to not only study theoretical economic modules but also financial modules with real life applications. The Management School also has a really good reputation and great links with employers.

Why did you choose your course?
I studied Economics at A-Level and found it really interesting. I chose to study BSc Economics both because I knew I had a genuine interest in it but also as I knew it would be an attractive degree for potential employers in finance.

What do you feel has been the most rewarding element of your course?
I was fortunate enough to win Student of the Year for the highest grade on my programme in first year. It is really nice to be recognised for all the hard work I had put in. It’s also great to have gained a much more in-depth understanding of a subject I enjoy.

What are your future career goals?
During my first year, I interned at Deutsche Bank in Asset Management. This was something I really enjoyed and where I see myself working in the future. I am also interested in trading in FX markets or working with Alternative Investments in Hedge Funds. The Management School has a trading floor which is a really good new facility allowing access to the Bloomberg platform, which is used in all major investment banks.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of studying at the Management School?
The Management School has a wide variety of services on offer to students: from ULMS Extra events to the Bloomberg Market Concepts sessions. They also have really good socials! My main advice would be to take every opportunity here because they all add to your CV and really help your employability.

What have you enjoyed most about your student experience?
I've enjoyed the feeling of independence and being able to manage my own workload, which are skills I'll be able to take with me when I begin my career. The social side of student life is also great!

What do you get up to when you're not studying?
I don’t think it’s any secret that Liverpool is renowned for its nightlife. There are so many great restaurants at the Albert Dock, which are lovely to go to when friends come to visit. I also regularly go to the University gym which is a great way to get a break from studying.
