Leicester Castle Business School has been created by De Montfort University (DMU) to meet the needs of 21st century business. We do this by going beyond business as usual, offering a unique learning environment where students are encouraged to challenge convention and given the opportunities and tools to think, create and inspire.

We believe that developing personal and professional skills and helping you achieve success are as important as the subjects you study. As part of your course at Leicester Castle Business School, we place a strong focus on learning, enhancing and practising these skills.

During your studies you will focus on developing personal, interpersonal, cognitive and technical skills. Underpinning these personal and professional skills are five important core values; leadership, creativity, community, integrity and global-mindedness. We will encourage and support you to think about these values, what they mean to you and how you interpret and incorporate them in to your professional life.
