Research at Alliance Manchester Business School
Inspired by the city of Manchester’s history as a world-leader in enterprise, innovation and creativity, our research ethos can be defined as Original Thinking Applied. We undertake cutting-edge and influential research which has a transformative impact on policy and practice.
Our founding ethos places us at the frontiers of business and management. We have grown into one of the country’s largest business schools, with a range of disciplines and theoretical perspectives unrivalled in the UK.
Our research ethos underpins three goals:
To produce influential innovative research of the highest international quality that places AMBS at the empirical and theoretical frontiers of business and management, offering novel perspectives and exploring often overlooked themes.
To have impact beyond academia both locally and globally by creating new knowledge which informs policy and practice and, in so doing, yields lasting economic, social, and cultural benefits.
To develop world-class engaged scholars, providing them with the resources to develop the most exciting and innovative research agendas which address some of the world’s most pressing and seemingly intractable challenges.
Our Institutes and Centres
Our academics provide the scale and diversity required to address the complexity of contemporary business and societal challenges. The breadth of our research allows us to foster important new areas of teaching and practical application.
