Cutting-edge research is central to the School’s mission and it underpins all of its activities. The founding Schools’ research activities resulted in excellent outcomes from the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2008. Work in Communication, Cultural and Media Studies achieved world class ratings, with Business and Management, Accounting and Finance ranked as internationally excellent. In addition, the research work in History contained high combinations of internationally recognised, excellent and world-leading assessments.
The School’s applied research generates knowledge that is highly relevant to business and wider communities. Through an extensive range of knowledge transfer activities, its research insights are continuously being used to benefit organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors.
