Beacon Business School

Welcome from the Dean

As the Inaugural Dean of the School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Beacon Business School of the New Beacon Group (NBG). The Beacon Business School is our first academic School to be established at our beautiful 50 acre campus in Stafford, Staffordshire. Our mission is to develop a Business School that is globally connected, locally and nationally focussed. We actively embrace entrepreneurial and innovative approaches in teaching and learning and we strive to give every student a unique Beacon experience. Research in the School is closely aligned to our Institutional aims of generating scholarship and research aligned to best practices in global management and is uniquely focused on East versus West perspectives in management theories, and practice. We believe that this is a differentiator in a crowded Business School landscape.


Thank you for visiting our web pages. I look forward to meeting and/or hearing from you.


Kind regards




Professor James F. O’Kane
