At the University of Salford (UoS) our vision is by pioneering exceptional industry partnerships, we lead the way in real world experiences, preparing students for life. Recognising that sustainability is just good business, the Salford Business School has supported BEST to empower and inspire our next generation business leaders to make lasting environmental, social and economic benefit.

The Business Ethics & Sustainability module team together with the University’s Sustainability Team (BEST) at UoS have worked together to create a world-class teaching and learning experience in line with the UoS ambitious Industry Collaboration Zone (ICZ) programme to unite colleagues, students, industry and communities through shared knowledge, learning and innovation. This embodies the ICZ ready curriculum based on collaboration, co-production and co-creation. The BE&S module within the Salford Business School (SBS) is a super module for level 6, and reaches around 350 students every academic year, our future business leaders.
