Business and Management
Research carried out under the Business and Management subject grouping at LSBU looks at three main areas of research:
- International Business
- Management Education
- Information Systems and Management
Creation of research interests
Since establishing in 2004, LSBU's School of Business has been through a period of sustained development. This culminated in 2009 with a strategic move to a multi-disciplinary research grouping focusing on Business and Management that draws on the strengths of the University's well-established Centre for International Business Studies (CIBS).
The move away from computing research led to the absorption of some staff into new research groupings in the areas of Information Management and Business Systems; Innovation and Technology Management; International Business; and Management, Education and Development. This then brought about the formal disestablishment of the Institute of Computing Research (ICR).
The focus of our research and scholarship has practical applications for business and management. This is highly in tune with the University's remit to pursue applied research with real-world impact and the desire to enhance the professionalism of both individuals and organisations.
Our research cuts across subject research, teaching practice and student learning and we encourage pedagogic and educational research that supports business development. Thus we focus on applied research and scholarship that links professional practice and subject knowledge, that underpins our postgraduate provision, provides opportunities for knowledge transfer between our stakeholders and opportunities for staff to enhance their professional profile.
- increase in the number of research active staff and of the number submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014
- research income has increased from approximately £1.5 million to nearly £3 million during the REF 2014 period. Income sources include research councils, government funds, charities and industry (both UK and international)
- Doctoral student completions have increased from 14.75 (FTE) to 21.8. There are a further 18 students on the research phase of the DBA (estimated to complete in 2015) and 20 on the taught part
