Public value teaching

Public value teaching at Cardiff Business School seeks to impart to students a moral sentiment and sympathetic imagination towards the social and economic challenges of our time.

We do this through an innovative, interdisciplinary and challenge-led curriculum.

"Cardiff Business School has a public value policy that sees us students taught to create not only economic value, but social value as well. It’s what makes the School so extraordinary."

Erin Mina Barber, MBA student
