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.

Research Mission

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.

Practitioner Engagement

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.
