Research is an important aspect of our mission. We aim to add value to the business community and wider economy by addressing topical issues and challenges and providing research-informed, actionable insights. Our research informs our teaching and inspires students.

The School of Business is a home to a vibrant international community of research-active faculty. Broadly speaking, our research seeks to offer insights into the drivers of performance and analyses the impact of the interactions among different agents operating within the world of business – from  individuals within organisations, to groups in organisations, organisations as a whole, to their ecosystems, markets, and regulation. We believe that business is about solving problems and that rarely, if ever, does the solution come from one person or one disciplinary perspective. Therefore, our faculty approaches these research themes form different perspectives and engages in conversations and collaborations across different functional disciplines, e.g., Management, Management Information Systems, Human Resource Management & Organisational Behaviour, International Business, Marketing, Strategy and Innovation, Finance and Accounting. Check out the profiles of our faculty to learn more about the research we do. 

Our faculty regularly publish in the most visible and high-quality peer reviewed journals in the world and speak at international research conferences, as well as at practitioner events. Check out the most recent publications and presentations in our news feed.
 
We run regular Research Seminar Series  where our faculty share insights from their ongoing projects. Everyone is welcome to attend!

We offer structured PhD programmes in Business & Management, Accounting, and Finance, that provide the framework for supporting the School’s PhD students’ research endeavours and to enable our PhD students to contribute to scholarly debates in their fields of interest.
