Our Mission & Vision

Our core mission is to enable and empower managers to deliver sustainable growth across their organisations. We deliver our mission by combining our extensive academic expertise with leading industry experts. The future for university-industry-society collaborations is exciting. The future for co-creating new sustainable business models is equally fascinating. The new 5G world is set to transform our ways of creating new value, for the benefit of all stakeholders. At Brunel University London, and at Brunel Business School, we embrace these new challenges and opportunities. We are pro-active in our partnerships with industry and society. Our new initiatives for 2020 and the years ahead include several opportunities to co-create new ventures and also help businesses to scaleup. 

Engage With Us 

“As we embark on a new decade, we are gearing up to move forward at great pace. We have expanded our team and network, putting in the foundations to widen our impact. 2021 will see a significant scale-up in our ability to help local businesses grow. With the launch of our Brunel Hive Consulting Group, we will significantly build our capacity to support both local and international businesses. We are making a direct impact with executive education, delivered through our innovative ‘Go for Growth’ programme. 2021 will also see us widening our scope and vision, with a strong focus on working with local business, to reposition them in the international marketplace. Our international focus is accompanied by a renewed commitment to spreading the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management, and a fairer, more sustainable and inclusive society for everyone. We are gearing up to tackle our most pressing business challenges and social problems, and to provide mentorship to the next generation of business leaders. I invite you to engage with Brunel Hive across our nine business support offerings. In a fast-changing world, our objective remains clear: focus on enabling the growth of your business, by working closely with you to explore new markets, technologies and opportunities globally.
