About our research clusters

The School’s research clusters reflect key themes within the School and provide a platform for developing multi-disciplinary research links, as well as for connecting research with practice.

Within each group, members of staff undertake innovative theoretical scholarship, significant empirical research and knowledge exchange activities. This has included national and international inter-disciplinary collaborations, not only with academic researchers, but also policymakers and managers addressing issues ranging from the internationalisation of SMEs through to the role of audit in capital markets to the future tax and public spending implications of economic crises.

A distinctive feature of the research across the groups is the crossover between conceptual and practical dimensions of research. This reflects a concern with the relevance and impact of research on business and policy communities.
