City, University of London’s Business School renamed as Bayes Business School
NEW DELHI, Sep 14
The Business School of City, University of London has been renamed as Bayes Business School ahead of the 2021/22 academic year.
The decision to select Bayes as the new name followed a comprehensive and transparent consultation process, which was carried out with staff, students, alumni and partners.
Thomas Bayes was a theologian and mathematician who is best known for Bayes’ Theorem, which suggests that we get closer to the truth by constantly updating our beliefs in proportion to the weight of new evidence. It is this idea that is the motivation behind adopting this name, said a press release issued by the School.
Alongside the new name, Bayes Business School is addressing inequality and participation more widely. For example, over two thousand new students will undertake inclusive teamworking workshops as part of their induction.
A complete curriculum review is underway to embed ethical and socially responsible values throughout, to ensure that Bayes educates professionals and business leaders who work towards building an equitable and sustainable future.
Bayes has also instituted a HYPERLINK “https://www.bayes.city.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/application-and-funding/scholarships/undergraduate-scholarships-for-black-british-students”scholarship programme for Black UK-domiciled undergraduate students to widen participation. This will cover all tuition fees along with an annual stipend for ten students from the start of the 2022/23 academic year.
