Our research

We are guided in our research by a regard for human rights and social justice and by a respect for diversity in individuals, communities and ideas.

We are committed to pushing the boundaries of knowledge, driving innovation, shaping business practice and making a measurable and positive impact on society.

It's about transforming business, addressing global problems and contributing in a meaningful way to the issues that matter.

Our teaching

We are dedicated to providing the best possible learning environment for our students and equipping them with a passion for their discipline and the confidence to operate in a global environment.

Our goal is to develop graduates who look beyond their discipline to understand the world's problems and who strive to find innovative solutions.

We do this through a unique offering of academic programs, distinguished by the sheer breadth of course and business disciplines, and by ensuring that every learning experience is different.

Our sustainability commitment

We are a proud signatory to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) - an initiative founded in 2007 with the support of the United Nations designed to raise the profile of sustainability in business schools around the world.

We are also committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Over ten years ago we embarked on a journey to embed the SDGs into our research, education and engagement initiatives. Over the years we have continued to deepen our efforts resulting in mahy achievements across our responsible management education focus.
