Research communities and centres

Our research communities play a critical role in changing the business world and shaping its future.

Research communities

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 aim to inspire new global perspectives through our research in:

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

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

Our thriving research communities deliver research for discovery and impact. They couple research with practice through interdisciplinary and cross-institutional partnerships.

Research centres

We have four research centres which the School (co-)leads. 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.
