Our research

Our research

Our aim is to create, disseminate and apply knowledge that contributes to business and society. We have an international reputation for world-leading research in Business & Management and Tourism, which we have earned by being a vibrant knowledge exchange community of students, staff and businesses.

We work closely with industry partners and the business community, something that’s reflected in the impact our research has as well as the success of engagement events such as BU’s Festival of Learning and the ESRC-funded Festival of Social Science.

Research opportunities

We want to recruit high-quality PhD students through match-funded, faculty-funded and part-funded scholarships to contribute to our stimulating and exciting research environment. You can find out more on our dedicated research site.
