Management Division

Tackling the key issues facing organisations

The Management Division tackles key issues facing organisations. We develop leaders and help organisations to be willing and able to deal with the most pressing and complex issues challenging society.

We challenge knowledge, we challenge society, we challenge ourselves, we challenge our students.

What we teach will be used, what we find in our research helps organisations and society to develop.

We teach the things that matter, our research helps organisations to deal with complex societal problems.
