About Us


Queen's University Management School (QUMS) has been in existence for over forty years, and was one of the first schools in the United Kingdom to offer undergraduate management education and an MBA degree. The School currently covers undergraduate as well as postgraduate programmes in accounting, economics, finance and management.

With over seventy academic staff and twenty-three support staff, Queen’s University Management School has benefited from targeted investment from the University in a series of new academic appointments and the result is a vibrant mix of high quality young and established researchers and lecturers. The School is now housed in the new Riddel Hall facilities, which has been completed in 2011.

The School is one of the largest in Queen’s University Belfast and has over 1,300 undergraduate students and continues to grow its postgraduate student numbers to 300 including a strong research-based PhD programme. Furthermore, the School offers a long-standing Executive MBA programme.

New State of the Art Facilities

The School has recently relocated to Riddel Hall, a B1 listed building, designed by W H Lynn in 1913.

The facility, set in 11 acres of beautiful parkland, is situated within the Stranmillis Conservation Area adjacent to the main University campus. The site comprises a new purpose-built Management School and Postgraduate and Executive Education Centre with conference facilities.
