Helping organisations and entrepreneurs to improve
We enhance the frontiers of knowledge in management and business studies for the sustainable growth of business, society and the economy.
How can organizations and entrepreneurs increase their benefits to society and minimize their environmental impact?
Our research addresses this question from a range of perspectives and has an impact locally, nationally and internationally. We examine supply chains, firms’ innovation strategies, entrepreneurship, international marketing, and the development of international businesses.
We undertake cutting-edge research in a range of areas, reflecting the Group’s expertise and diversity. Our research deepens our understanding of the challenges that organizations and managers face, leading to impactful and relevant debate, and pragmatic and valued solutions. We will provide transformational education, focusing on practical, inter-personal and analytical skills so that leading organizations will seek out our graduates for their capabilities and behaviour.
By working on key organizational and societal issues, SOE research has influenced the UK Intellectual Property Office’s patent policy towards small firms and universities, local government policies to raise the level of R&D expenditure, and the efficiency of firms’ supply chains. The group also hosts the Centre for Research on Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Management and Internationalisation (REIMI).
