Many teaching staff in MPD are active researchers and this too informs the techniques used to deliver programmes in this progressive department. The aim of our research programmes is to share with students some practical ‘real world’ experiences and this is achieved through a blend of lecturing that delivers the results of academic research and industrial examples.

North Campus based at Stapleton House in Islington’s industrious Holloway Road, attracts full and part-time postgraduate students and also offers a number of undergraduate programmes in management, HR management Entrepreneurship and business psychology.
