Our academics push the boundaries of knowledge to help organisations and society innovate and thrive. They undertake theoretical and applied research that investigates important problems facing business, the public sector, not-for-profits and the wider world.
Their work challenges inequality and business injustices, such as gender prejudice, and explores important areas like accounting in emerging economies and behavioural finance. They examine issues at local, national and international levels and their work is informed by a wide range of social science theories.
Our academic structure at Essex Business School comprises of five distinct research groups: Accounting, Finance, Management and Marketing, Management Science and Entrepreneurship and Organisational Studies and Human Resource Management. Our academic staff also contribute towards the interdisciplinary ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre.
