"The decisions that are made every day in companies and governments all over the world owe their provenance to Adam Smith. What I hope is to bring the world to the home of Adam Smith. To debate the best ideas, and the things that are going to change our world in the future." - Professor Heather McGregor, Executive Dean, Edinburgh Business School

Edinburgh Business School is the graduate school of business at Heriot-Watt University. We have 10,600 active students and more than 21,500 alumni. Students can choose to study at home, here in Edinburgh or with one of our many partner institutions across the globe.

Common belief

Our belief in the power of the individual and in the shared nature of learning echoes Smith’s own thinking and provides us with the inspiration to drive the Panumre House project. We aim to bring the world’s brightest minds to Panmure House, to make this building once more a hub of radical thought and dynamic, inter-disciplinary study.
