Our programmes are professionally recognised by the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD),Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and other professional bodies and are underpinned by world-leading research.  

    Our research is organised around three core research interest areas: public policy and management, sustainable working futures, and responsible business. The 2021 REF results placed our research power at 9th in the rankings for Business and Management Studies.
