Research in the School of Business and Management
The School of Business and Management at QMUL was created with a clear remit to build an outstanding, unique approach to research in which scholarship of international quality can flourish.
Our students are attracted to the School by its distinctive research strategy, which focuses on the economic, societal and historical context of business and management, social justice issues in business and management, and governance in the private, public and third sectors.
Interconnected research environment
This strategy is achieved through the distinct identities of interconnected research centres and groups and the expertise of individual academics. This leads to a dynamic research environment where collaborations, workshops, public events and community engagement take place.
Our students benefit from the research that our academics undertake, as they are exposed to real business problems and the complexities that in-depth research can reveal. Our academics publish in leading business and management journals, author books and chapters, and play a major part in the wider national and international research community. You can find out more about their areas of specialist interest, along with their publications and research in progress, at: busman.qmul.ac.uk/staff
