Home to the award-winning Chester Business School, our multi-million-pound corporate hub is the perfect place to begin your exciting business career.

Nestled alongside the banks of the River Dee, and only a stone’s throw away from Chester’s lively city centre, is Queen’s Park, home to the Faculty of Business and Management. Over £4 million has been invested here, and on-site learning facilities include modern computer suites and a dedicated business library with group study spaces and learning pods for quiet study, a 200-seat lecture theatre, mixed teaching rooms equipped with the latest AV equipment and high-quality computer suites.

Our industry-specific training, placements, interactive sessions and one-to-one tutorials are designed to help you enhance your employability. The prestigious corporate environment at Queen’s Park can open the door to a number of networking opportunities with our many business partners, and provides a great place to socialise.

The campus also has fantastic catering, including a cafeteria with a Starbucks ‘grab-and-go’ counter and bring your own food area, as well as a top-floor brasserie with panoramic views of Chester. There are plenty of areas for students to relax and socialise outside too; with easy access to riverside walks and The Meadows.
