Departmental Staff

About the Department

As a department, we deliver outstanding work in the fields of entrepreneurship and strategic management research, education and business support. Our strengths are drawn from close alignment of these three key elements and from the continuous 'real world' feedback received through interaction with the business community. This ensures that our activities are always up to date, focused and precisely matched to the needs of students, businesses and the wider community.

This department is home to the Centre for Family Business, developing integrative research themes with leading scholars, and benefits from a growing network of entrepreneurs-in-residence who contribute to the constantly expanding knowledge base that underpins our teaching.

Engaging with Business

By harnessing the power of research and academic insight, we are leading the debate on a range of global issues.
