Research Centres, Groups and Clusters

Research in the School is organised around 10 overlapping research centres, groups and clusters. Our research centres, groups and clusters provide intellectual meeting places for our researchers.

Research centres

Centre for Globalisation Research (CGR) is a global academic hub that researches multiple aspects of globalisation. It focuses on international monetary economics and finance, emerging and developing economies and labour economics.

Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED) is at the forefront of equality and diversity research both nationally and internationally. Its research is focused on employment, management, workplace, careers and migration aspects of diversity and inequality.

Centre on Labour and Global Production (CLGP) engages in inter-disciplinary research on the changing position of workers, labour and regulation in the world economy. The Centre’s research on labour in the global economy focuses on uneven working conditions, labour standards, affective labour, unpaid work, and forms of representation and worker organisation that arise from inter-dependent global economic relations.

Research groups

Accounting & Accountability Research Group (AARG) brings historical perspective and methods to contemporary business and management issues, such as financial capitalism, privatisation and technological change.

Behavioural Finance Working Group (BFWG) focuses on areas of behavioural finance, emerging markets, corporate finance and corporate governance financialisation and its impact on business models as well as financial and management accounting.

Business Ecosystems Research Group (BERG) examines the way that businesses’ different components relate to and interact with one another. BERG members use their expertise to research both innovation and production ecosystems.

Marketing Interactions & Consumer Behaviour Group (MICBG) focuses on marketing as a social phenomenon rather than a set of economic tools. Its interest is in the social/civic impact of marketing phenomena and their transformative effects.

Organisational Processes and Practices Research Group (OPPRG) includes a number of scholars engaging in research within the broad field of Organisation Studies.

Research clusters

Public Management and Regulation Cluster (PMR) investigates the management of core executives in national governments, strategic management in international organisations, leadership in the management of public services and regulatory activity.

Borderlines: Action Research Cluster in Creative and Cultural Economies (BARCCE) is an inter/trans-disciplinary group of researchers, artists, thinkers, makers, practitioners who are interested in understanding the role of the creative and cultural sectors in reproducing and moving beyond neo-liberal logics of space, temporality and community.
