History
In 1901, industrialist Alfred Bolton acquired a 2-acre (8,100 m2) site on what is now College Road and in 1906 mining classes began there. In 1907, pottery classes followed, being transferred from Tunstall into temporary buildings, and in 1914 the building now known as the Cadman Building was officially opened as the Central School of Science and Technology by J. A. Pease, President of the Board of Education. A frieze over the entrance depicts potters and miners. In 2013, the Library Conference room in the Cadman building was renamed the Alfred Bolton room.

In 1915, a department was established for the commercial production of Seger cones used to measure and control the temperatures of ceramic furnaces, based upon research completed by the principal, Joseph Mellor. Grants from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust in 1924 were used to develop the ceramics library and in 1926 the name of the institution was changed to North Staffordshire Technical College. By 1931 extensions to the Cadman Building ran along Station Road and housed the Mining Department. A grant was awarded from the Miners’ Welfare Fund to fund the building work. The new extension also housed the library, which by now had 35,000 volumes. By 1934 the college consisted of four departments: Engineering (nearly 800 students), Pottery (just over 600 students), Mining (just under 500 students), and Chemistry (under 300 students).

In 1939, new engineering workshops were occupied for the first time and the land opposite the Cadman Building was purchased. By 1950 Victoria Road changed its name to College Road and the site now extended over 12 acres (49,000 m2). The Mellor Building and Experimental Production Block (now Dwight Building) were constructed for the North Staffordshire College of Technology by 1960.

Various faculty movements and further building work resulted in North Staffordshire Polytechnic being formed in 1970 with the merger of Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, North Staffordshire College of Technology (both based in Stoke-on-Trent), and Staffordshire College of Technology in Stafford. In 1977, the polytechnic absorbed a teacher training facility in Madeley, Staffordshire.

The polytechnic developed traditional strengths of the component institutions, e.g. ceramics (Stoke-on-Trent), computing (Stafford) and sports education (Madeley). The mining department closed as result of the decline of coal mining in the 1980s. New subjects were developed. North Staffordshire Polytechnic was amongst only a handful of third-level institutions in the UK to offer International Relations as a dedicated degree. The 1992 UK government Research Assessment Exercise placed the International Relations Department as the highest-rated in the institution.

In 1988, the institution changed its name to Staffordshire Polytechnic. In 1992, it became Staffordshire University, one of the new universities.

Student Testimonials

From APU's MBA program, I learned about Japanese culture and how business is conducted in Japan. I am now a consultant to Japanese companies conducting business in Africa, and I also work closely with the Embassy of Japan as Secretary-General of the Zimbabwe-Japan Alumni Association. The African continent is growing rapidly, and thanks to the skills I acquired at APU, I am one of the active members of this new development.

I am extremely proud to be part of the Bandai Namco Group today. It has always been one of my dreams to work at this company. To help me achieve this dream, I chose to get my MBA at APU, as the program mainly focuses on the study of Japanese corporations and business companies. The unique international aspect of APU also greatly helped me, as I developed multicultural communication skills. These skills are put to use in my daily work as I am required to conduct negotiations successfully and lead problem-solving initiatives. The MBA program not only helped me gain confidence, but gave me the ability to develop the necessary business skills for our dynamic global society.

The MBA program teaching style is interactive with weekly discussions, presentations, and reports. Also, the optional Japanese language classes helped me adapt to a new environment. Overall, this knowledge helped me to quickly transition to my current role in the IT services sector in Tokyo. I am sure APU will continue to provide its students with the tools they need to create a brighter future for years to come.

Piotr Halys

Piotr HalysGraduate School of Management (MBA Program)

Studying at APU significantly impacted my life. Under the division of Tourism and Hospitality in International Cooperation Policy, I studied and researched destination development and tourism policy. Through this, I learned the importance of policies and how to apply the ideas of tourism into destination and regional development. Furthermore, the environment at APU taught me how to shape my own world in a multicultural society by interacting with people from various countries. As a result of active participation in several school activities, I realized that mutual understanding can only happen when we accept the differences of each other and seek ways to work and live together. I believe APU is the perfect place where you can experience a real global society

When I was looking for an MBA program, I found APU among the top twenty business schools in the field of international management in East Asia. With a background in Japanese language and prior experience living in Japan during my undergraduate study, I opted for APU’s MBA program because of the availability of English instruction and various scholarship opportunities provided to me. With countless careers options emerging in the globalized world, APU prepared us —the future managers—to understand and appreciate different cultures. My classmates at APU come from all corners of the globe, which fosters a strong community that shares, discovers and learns together.
