Our research expertise is focused on influencing current business policy and practice. As well as core aspects of management, we specialise in knowledge, innovation, technology, and enterprise through our dedicated KITE research centre. This is currently developing its research in the field of entrepreneurship.
The mission of our research programmes is to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and business practice. The programmes are designed to equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in a knowledge-intensive environment and add value to your professional and personal lives.
We offer both MPhil and PhD programmes.
We've also taken an active role in the Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative, a regional consortium of research-led business schools. This network provides advanced research training for doctoral students through a series of specialist workshops and an annual colloquium.
