Kingston Business School’s MBA, DBA and MSc in International Business Management courses have once again achieved accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA). Following its AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and EPAS accreditation, the Business School is now one of only a handful of institutions to be accredited by all three major international validation bodies confirming its status amongst the top business school educators in the world.

The globally recognised MBA programme has now been AMBA–accredited for 33 continuous years since 1984, with the latest re-accreditation set to run until 2023.

Kingston University's annual Bright Ideas competition last week saw enterprising students pitch their innovative business ideas to panels of expert judges - which included a number of entrepreneurial alumni.

The competition, hosted each year by the University's Enterprise Education department sees contestants present their idea for a product, service, app or social enterprise before answering questions, with winners for each category receiving £1,000 towards developing a business model and further mentoring.

In 2016, Kingston University helped no fewer than 289 entrepreneurial graduates get their companies off the ground, and has been named as one of the top two universities in the country for the number of graduates starting up their own business for eight consecutive years.

The new building has been designed to enhance the teaching experience for students and encourage Kingston residents to make use of the facilities, helping to build stronger ties with the town and bring the public into the University.

Established in May 2016, the Integrity Research Group at Kingston University Law School aims to identify activity that will make a concrete impact on the policies surrounding corruption.

The group’s membership brings together experts and academics from around the globe and staff and students from a broad range of subject specialisms across Kingston University.

The Integrity Research Group was officially launched at its inaugural symposium in September, and the event was attended by renowned experts in journalism, sociology, law, legal philosophy and economics.

The Integrity Research Group is now launching its inaugural research seminar series. These seminars will provide a platform for existing and new group members who are interested in making a difference to legislation and policies surrounding corruption and anti-corruption.

Have you heard the story of the first #ArcticConvoy? It was a top-secret mission that shipped supplies to Russia in the Second World War.

The story remained untold for many years and it was only in 2013 that all those involved in the Arctic Convoys were finally recognised and awarded the Arctic Star medal by the British Government.

This year, a prize-winning documentary by MA filmaking lecturer Roy Perkins has been included in the official UK tribute for the 75th anniversary commemoration of the first Arctic Convoy.
