Our research activities play a very important role in the Business School. We have a vibrant research community where staff and research students work alongside associates from government and industry. Research is a key part of our approach to learning and each department runs its own programmes and projects within a coordinated framework. We also encourage and resource specialist research, undertaken by students studying for their PhD and DBA doctorates.
