Business School research centres

At the Business School we are committed to ensuring our research is directly relevant to industry, the economy and the needs of society. Our staff are actively involved in both research and knowledge exchange activities.

Centre for Mental Health and Capacity Law

The centre focuses on mental health and incapacity law rights and policy but goes beyond the legislation that specifically provides for the care and treatment of individuals. Our research areas include employability, law, learning disabilities, mental health, public health, human rights, social justice, user experience (UX) and mental capacity.

Employment Research Institute

The Employment Research Institute offers solid evidence on all aspects of employability, based on the best scientific techniques. Our research areas include employment, employability, economic development, demographic change and surveys and questionnaires.

The International Centre for Management and Governance Research aims to bridge academic and professional knowledge on international management and governance. Our research areas include human resources, management, marketing, employability, social justice, business, ethics and sustainability, leadership and governance.
