We have an excellent team of academics offering a broad, collective expertise, gained from both professional experience and academic research. Our academics have supervised a wide range of post-doctoral research papers and have used their research knowledge to develop exclusive and distinctive business, management and finance programmes to the benefit of all our undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The research expertise represented at our school has enabled us to develop excellent partnerships with companies in business, industry and commerce and a global network of academic contacts and partnerships with other academic institutions. Research projects have addressed local, regional, national and international issues and have involved collaborations from across the world.
