Research is at the centre of Cardiff Business School's activities. Cardiff Business School is ranked 6th in the UK for the quality of its research in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) and one of only two business schools in the UK to be ranked in the top ten in each of the Government’s five assessment exercises since 1992.

Research is conducted both within the Schools' sub-disciplinary groups as well as via specialist and multidisciplinary research centres.

The School also has a strong and active PhD programme, with 150 PhD students studying at the School at any one time. A substantial proportion of these students are funded by scholarships obtained from funding bodies including the ESRC, EPSRC and a number of private sector organisations.
