About the forum

At Regent's University London, we believe in the importance of business insights at faculty level as much as at student level, and the Regent’s Business Forum (RBF) offers an opportunity for this kind of knowledge transfer through lecture sessions at various intervals throughout the academic year.

The main aims of the Regent's Business Forum (RBF) are to build bridges between business professionals and Regent’s academic staff and students, and, to link industry practice with academic knowledge.

We value the involvement of our members to attend our guest lectures, to network with fellow members, our academic staff, and our students. We also welcome presentations from RBF members on topics from their particular industry, or to advise and support our students on their projects, or to observe student's presentations, thus enhancing the learning experience of our students. We also welcome any opportunities for student placements in any of our RBF members companies.

The RBF has strong links with other departments in Regent’s University which includes, our Careers & Business Relations department, which is responsible for providing a comprehensive service to all Regent's  students and alumni. It is responsible for centrally handling all career service and employability functions for the University. This department supports our RBF members by securing appropriate Regent’s graduates for any employment opportunities they may have.

To support our members we have developed a research site entitled Regent’s Business Forum Paper Series – ‘Thought Leadership’. The aim of which is to lead the conversation among, business executives, other thought leaders, and Regent’s academics, to improve the practice of management and its impact in a changing global world.

The RBF serves as learning and teaching point, for all that attend and we look forward to meeting you at the next event.

Please contact Kaye Foskett if you wish to have any additional information about the RBF.
