Academic Staff


USB’s core faculty and other local
and international academics

The key role of USB’s core faculty is to facilitate student learning and research,
and to undertake research themselves in order to add to the collective
intellectual capital created at the school. Research helps to ensure the
relevance of USB’s programmes and to position USB as a leading school
in the international business school arena.
