Our Teaching Matters

The Management Division creates future leaders. Whether you are doing an undergraduate, masters or postgraduate research degree you will be developing your leadership skills so that you can make a difference in the world. We are currently ranked number one in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction in Management (NSS, 2015) and we help you to use theory in real world opportunities. Our Leaders in Residence programme embeds opportunities to interact with senior managers and directors in the curriculum; we support students interested in spending a year in industry or studying abroad as part of their undergraduate studies; and we have specific modules that build your personal and professional skills.

Our Research Matters

We are at the forefront of management knowledge and our research tackles key challenges faced by organisations and policy-makers. The impact that our research has on UK society and organisations was acknowledged in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) where 82% of the School's research submitted was judged by experts to be either "world leading" or "internationally excellent". We currently work with organisations such as IBM, the National Police Service, Rolls-Royce and the World Bank, not to mention numerous SMEs.
