Our School of Business Sciences seeks to educate and foster a global community whose core values facilitate not only outstanding performance in business but also in ethical business practices. Thus our objective is to improve the economic and living conditions of diverse populations around the world by steering business and public policy leaders toward identifying and implementing innovative ideas for creating broad-based prosperity.
S.T.E.M. skills and knowledge are of course valuable in many types of non STEM businesses – marketing, modelling, product development, finance, insurance, communications etc. but in the S.T.E.M. related business to business environments (e.g. pharmaceuticals marketing and IT services) a high level of technical and specialist knowledge is essential. Business Scientists must have sufficient scientific and technical knowledge to be credible with colleagues and competitors and over time they will have opportunities to progress through the company to higher levels at which their scientific knowledge is valuable but their management and business skills are essential. At senior management board or executive board level, they may be in a minority of those with science knowledge and will have to cover discussions and decision-making on new products, competition, health and safety etc.
