Appointment of Professor & Subject Group Head of Accounting and Finance

University of Liverpool - University of Liverpool Management School

The University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) sits in the top 5% of business schools globally and is well positioned to enhance its national and international standing, giving particular emphasis in the coming period to developing the volume and reach of its world-class research activity. AACSB accredited and with its full-time MBA ranked in the Economist top 100, ULMS has 170 academic staff who enjoy a strongly collegial, research-supportive, and intellectually vibrant interdisciplinary environment. Well-connected with industry and the professions, the School’s research activity and external relationships have clear real-world impact. The School’s new extension in the Georgian quarter of Liverpool has state of the art facilities including a trading room and a marketing suite.

Student numbers, calibre and satisfaction are high. In addition to the main Liverpool campus, ULMS offers a range of City-relevant programmes at its London campus in Finsbury Square, including a CFA recognised Masters in Finance and Investment Management, and significant online provision, as well as programme and research collaborations with its international partner, the International Business School, Suzhou (the Business School at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, near Shanghai).

In its wider University setting, the School benefits not just from connections with key research institutes (the Institute of Risk and Uncertainty, and the Heseltine Institute of Public Policy), but from its location in a city which combines strong cultural activity, excellent transport links, and regional beauty with a world heritage skyline and is highly ranked on quality of life in the UK, while remaining one of Britain’s most affordable cities.
