Our Research

Research for positive change

Here at the School of Management, our research strategy aligns with our core mission to empower responsible leadership.  

Of course, we aspire to lead on, and collaborate in, world-class research, which is academically rigorous, innovative and applicable, but it is equally important that our research is also ethical, sustainable and can make a positive societal impact.  

Sustainability, digital innovation and green economy are key overarching themes and we also make a significant contribution to the university-wide theme of sustainable societies.

We take an interdisciplinary, cross-cutting and collaborative approach but we organise our research expertise via three academic departments.;

  • Accounting, Finance and Economics (AFE)
  • Business Analytics, Circular Economy and Entrepreneurship (BACE)
  • International Business, Marketing and Strategy (IBMS).

We draw on a wealth of international connections but also build on a strong heritage of local civic engagement which enables us to think globally and act locally in our academic and practice-orientated research initiatives.


Our academic departments

Our departments are inclusive and active, encouraging interdisciplinarity, and collaboration with members of the School and other researchers across the University. Each department brings together an expert team to produce and participant in academic and practice orientated research and to inform our pedagogical development ensuring that our teaching programmes remain innovative and relevant.
