More about research outputs
The School advances knowledge through theoretical and applied discipline-based research, which is published in top academic journals, and creates impact through peer recognition, corporate and community engagement and the support of student learning.
The Business School's research mission is to produce theory-led, practically-relevant, research that addresses contemporary organisational and management challenges faced by businesses, public organisations, regulatory bodies and policy-makers. Our research strategy is focused on creating and sustaining a supportive, collaborative and vibrant research culture, through: raising the quality and quantity of our research output; and by supporting, developing and managing all faculty to achieve our goals.
Our approach emphasises academic excellence centred on discipline-based Subject Groups, while also encouraging a number of Research Centres and cross-cutting themes that reflect opportunities within the City of Edinburgh as a global business hub, alongside pre-eminent points of expertise across the University. Our centres provide mechanisms for capacity building, bringing together established and new researchers (including doctoral researchers) to develop and disseminate new knowledge, generate new funding, and enhance reputation.
Practitioner engagement is a major emphasis of the Business School. In addition to dissemination in academic and practitioner journals, each research group runs a variety of activities with the aim of providing a broad base of accessible evidence for practitioner-oriented activities.
Our research environment is further enlivened by our growing doctoral research community, with over 100 full and part-time students. Please see the PhD section for detailed information on our research degree programmes and how to apply.
