The Department of Management is rated #1 in the UK for research in business and management studies (REF 2014). Our mission is to inform and inspire better management in practice by challenging and extending the understanding of people, teams, organisations and markets, and the economic, psychological, social, political and technological contexts in which they operate worldwide.
From our setting in a world-class social science institution at the heart of a leading global city, we achieve our mission by producing original and robust research insights, and delivering high-quality, evidence-based education.
We engage with people and organisations worldwide, across the private, public, and third sectors, who are motivated to improve the world through better understanding and practice of management.
Research within the department focuses on Organisational Behaviour, Information Systems and Innovation, Employment Relations and Human Resource Management, Public Management, Marketing, and Managerial Economics and Strategy.
