Research and Consultancy

Businesses of all sizes and sectors can access a range of consultancy and collaborative research services, to help you achieve operational and strategic goals.

The Business School is a top 10 UK business and management research institution. We are at the cutting edge of new knowledge, due to our academic rigour, sophisticated techniques, capacities and analytical expertise.


Organisations can access consultancy services across a broad spectrum of our research expertise:

  • Leadership and Organisational Design
  • Strategy and Innovation
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Finance
  • Personal development
  • Operations and Supply Chain Management
  • Governance
  • Data Analytics
Collaborative research

We work on collaborative research projects with organisations to address specific business issues.

In projects of this nature, organisations play an important role in the development and delivery of the research.

These mutually beneficial collaborations shape and influence research to create new knowledge which can give your business a commercial advantage, or even have a positive impact on the wider sector or government policy. 

Engagement opportunities

Organisations can access our academics in a research visit which is less formal than research and consultancy. These opportunities enable an academic to work with an organisation in an exploratory way.

Ideas in Practice seminar series

Ideas in Practice seminars are sector specific events bringing together academics and senior business professionals in an environment to develop networks and explore collaboration.
