Research is an important contributor to the Business School’s international standing. As an AACSB-accredited business school, our international research connections and collaborations are key mechanisms for increasing our international reputation and relevance. Many of the School’s postgraduate research students have international backgrounds and connections that contribute to the depth and richness of the research undertaken in the School. As a member of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, the Business School has made a commitment to engage in research that advances knowledge and understanding of the implications for business of social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
The School has invested substantially in developing its research capability. Recruitment of leading researchers and the development of the research capabilities of existing staff are yielding significant returns in terms of research performance. Business School staff and research students increasingly conduct world-class research. The last national research assessment exercise (PBRF), recorded a substantial increase in the School’s research performance, with over 75% of its academic staff evaluated as active researchers by international standards.
