We are a research-intensive business school in a Russell Group University. Research is an integral piece of what we do. We have created an internationally distinctive research reputation through our vibrant collaborations. It plays a vital role in how we engage with organisations and policymakers on a regional, national and international platform.

We are home to over 180 academic researchers. Their research is world-leading in the following areas:

  • accounting and finance
  • economics
  • leadership, work and organisation
  • marketing, operations and systems

Our seven research communities join research with practice through interdisciplinary and cross-institutional partnerships.

Research centres

We are home to two key University research centres. They drive interdisciplinary research and bridge the gap between academia, policy and practice.

Our research centres draw on knowledge and skills across the University. They bring together researchers and those with a professional interest in particular disciplines.

We stretch boundaries, challenge traditional ways of thinking, and find new solutions to problems.
