Welcome to the School of Business, Management and Economics

The ongoing crisis in the financial sector has highlighted the need for competent and responsible men and women to provide strong leadership, not only in these areas but across the whole range of business, financial and regulatory activity.

The School of Business, Management and Economics is a unique, research focused school which takes a strong policy-directed view on business practices while also developing the underlying core disciplines. The School is exceptionally well placed to provide leadership in the development and dissemination of sustainable business and management practice, informed by sound economic logic.
