Queen’s Management School is one of the top business schools in the UK and Ireland and prides itself on offering a world-class range of postgraduate degree programmes in Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing.


Among the best in the world, Accounting and Finance is ranked 9th in the UK (Times and Sunday Times Good University UK Guide, 2019) and is joint 1st in the UK for career prospects (Guardian University Guide 2019).

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), we are ranked joint 8th in the UK for Research Intensity, with 70% of our research deemed to be world leading or internationally excellent.


Queen’s Management School is located at Riddel Hall, situated within the Stranmillis Conservation Area adjacent to the main University campus. The site now encompasses a new, purpose-built Management School and Postgraduate and Executive Education Centre with conference facilities.

Riddel Hall provides the School with academic and support offices; postgraduate research rooms for students and research fellows; a range of fully equipped teaching facilities with varying capacities from small syndicate rooms to a 120-seat tiered lecture theatre; two computer suites; the Trading Room; the Placement Office; resource accommodation; flexible space for large group teaching and conference use; and communal support facilities including catering accommodation to encourage social and intellectual interaction. 



 Students have access to Bloomberg software, a market leader in financial news, data and analytics, which is used by many financial institutions. The Trading Room allows for an interactive and exciting learning environment which brings textbook theory to life. Students will use and have access to software such as Stata, Excel, Matlab, and databases such as Thomson One Banker, DataStream and Bloomberg.

 Students are invited to join the Student Managed Fund where they will have a unique opportunity to manage a real money investment portfolio of £30,000. Queen’s Management School is one of only a handful of universities in the UK and Ireland to offer this experience which is a game changer when it comes to graduate employability. 

Students are invited to many joint events with the Leadership Institute with prestigious speakers including Sam Woods, Director of Financial Stability at the Bank of England, Denis O’Brien, the leading Irish Telecoms Entrepreneur, Manus Cranny, European Markets Editor and News Anchor for Bloomberg TV, and former South African President FW de Klerk.
