fund For Excellence Supporting intellectual excellence and innovation in Business and Economics
Loughborough is a leading player across business, management, finance and economics Business education in Loughborough began in 1971. Since then the School has established a reputation for high-quality teaching, world-leading research and a strong emphasis on real-life applications. Our graduates consistently rank their experience amongst the best nationally and our courses regularly feature in the top ten of most university league tables. Our strong links with industry give our students a distinctive experience, and are able to apply their learning to real-world situations. Many of our professors and lecturers are internationally renowned. As well as contributing to our comprehensive and highly regarded research programmes, they have been awarded top ten rankings for teaching quality. Thus our students also benefit from working with academics who are not only leaders in their field, but are also first-class educators. Our globally oriented teaching and research allow us to:

Loughborough University Development Trust Over the last 10 years, Loughborough University Development Trust has received almost £2 million in philanthropic donations to support funds like the Fund for Excellence. In turn, many thousands of students have benefitted, and the University has been able to provide a world-class education and experience – as evidenced by Loughborough topping the Times Higher Education’s (THE) Best Student Experience poll five years running. In part, this has been made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends of the University. Some have supported the Trust from its earliest days and week by week the number of supporters is growing.
