Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) - TIE'17 is being physically hosted by The Business School at Canterbury Christ Church University who are a welcoming community of staff and students working together to provide high quality education, research, and business engagement. The University's original campus was built upon land that formed the outer precincts of St Augustine’s Abbey (founded in about 602AD), within clear view of Canterbury’s majestic and world-renowned cathedral, Canterbury Christ Church University was literally grounded in the church. Today our connection to the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion is as important to our identity as ever. It underpins the welcome we offer to all, regardless of faith or belief. The ethic of service to the public good, which coloured our small beginnings as a teacher training college, continues to inform the diverse syllabus that characterises our contemporary life. It has also determined the shape of our geographical footprint as we have sought to enhance accessibility to Higher Education for some of Kent’s most disadvantaged communities. We strive for excellence and innovation in everything we do. From the qualifications we offer, through to our research, knowledge exchange and business consultancy work, we aim to produce outstanding results that not only meet, but exceed expectations.
